1 Timothy - 2


1I urge then, first of al that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving should be offered foreveryone, 2for kings and others in authority, so that we may be able to live peaceful and quiet lives with al devotionand propriety. 3To do this is right, and acceptable to God our Saviour: 4he wants everyone to be saved and reach full knowledge of the truth. 5For there is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and humanity, himself a humanbeing, Christ Jesus, 6who offered himself as a ransom for al . This was the witness given at the appointed time, 7of which I was appointed herald and apostle and -- I am telling the truth and no lie -- a teacher of thegentiles in faith and truth. 8In every place, then, I want the men to lift their hands up reverently in prayer, with no anger or argument. 9Similarly, women are to wear suitable clothes and to be dressed quietly and modestly, without braidedhair or gold and jewellery or expensive clothes; 10their adornment is to do the good works that are proper for women who claim to be religious. 11During instruction, a woman should be quiet and respectful. 12I give no permission for a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. A woman ought to be quiet, 13because Adam was formed first and Eve afterwards, 14and it was not Adam who was led astray but the woman who was led astray and fell into sin. 15Nevertheless, she will be saved by child-bearing, provided she lives a sensible life and is constant infaith and love and holiness.
