1 Timothy Chapter 2

New Testament / First Epistle to Timothy / Chapter 2

1-7 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men, for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and humility. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was ordained a preacher, and an apostle. I speak the truth in Christ and do not lie, a teacher of faith and truth to the Gentiles.

8-15 I desire therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner, women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing, but proper for women professing godliness with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all submission, as I do not allow a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived fell into transgression. Nevertheless, she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, charity, and holiness, with steadiness.
