1 Timóteo 2

1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men;

2 for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity;

3 for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God,

4 who desires that all men should be saved and come to {the} knowledge of {the} truth.

5 For God is one, and {the} mediator of God and men one, {the} man Christ Jesus,

6 who gave himself a ransom for all, the testimony {to be rendered} in its own times;

7 to which *I* have been appointed a herald and apostle, (I speak {the} truth, I do not lie,) a teacher of {the} nations in faith and truth.

8 I will therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up pious hands, without wrath or reasoning.

9 In like manner also that the women in decent deportment and dress adorn themselves with modesty and discretion, not with plaited {hair} and gold, or pearls, or costly clothing,

10 but, what becomes women making profession of the fear of God, by good works.

11 Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection;

12 but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness;

13 for Adam was formed first, then Eve:

14 and Adam was not deceived; but the woman, having been deceived, was in transgression.

15 But she shall be preserved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with discretion.
