1 Timothy 2:
- I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--
- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
- This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
- who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
- For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
- who gave himself as a ransom for all men--the testimony given in its proper time.
- And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle--I am telling the truth, I am not lying--and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.
- I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
- I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,
- but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
- A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.
- I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
- For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
- And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
- But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
