The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Chapter 2

We should pray for all people—Christ is our Mediator—Women should dress modestly—Women are blessed in childbearing and are admonished to continue in faith, charity, and holiness.

 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

 For akings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and bpeaceable clife in all godliness and dhonesty.

 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

 aWho bwill have call men to be dsaved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 For there is aone God, and one bmediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

 Who agave himself a bransom for all, to be ctestified in due time.

 Whereunto I am aordained a bpreacher, and an capostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and dlie not;) a teacher of the eGentiles in faith and fverity.

 I awill therefore that men bpray every where, lifting up holy chands, without wrath and ddoubting.

 In like manner also, that awomen adorn themselves in bmodest capparel, with dshamefacedness and sobriety; not with ebroided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

 10 But (which becometh women professing agodliness) with good works.

 11 Let the woman learn in asilence with all subjection.

 12 But I suffer not a woman to ateach, nor to busurp authority over the man, but to be in csilence.

 13 For Adam was first aformed, then Eve.

 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being adeceived was in the btransgression.

 15 Notwithstanding ashe shall be saved in bchildbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and choliness with dsobriety.
