1 I REQUIRE then from thee, that, before every thing supplication be offered to Aloha, and prayer and intercession and thanksgiving for all men;
2 for kings and princes, that an habitation quiet and tranquil we may inhabit in all the fear of Aloha and purity.
3 For this is good and acceptable before Aloha our Saviour;
4 who willeth that all men should be saved, and turn to the knowledge of the truth.
5 For one is Aloha, and one is the Mediator of Aloha and of men; the man Jeshu Meshiha,
6 who gave himself a ransom for every man; a testimony which cometh in its time,
7 of which I am constituted an herald and an apostle, I say the truth and lie not, to be a teacher of the nations in the faith of the truth.
8 I wish then for men to pray in every place, uplifting their hands purely and without wrath and without disputations.
9 So also let women with decorous simplicity of apparel,with modesty and with chastity, adorn themselves, not with braidings, and with gold, and with pearls, and with fine vestments,
10 but with good works, as becometh women who profess the fear of Aloha.
11 Let the wife in quietude learn with all submission:
12 for unto the wife to teach I permit not, neither to be authoritative over the husband, but to be in quietude.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Hava;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the wife was deceived, and transgressed the commandment.
15 But she is saved by her children, if they continue in faith, and in love, and in sanctification, and in chastity.
