1 Timóteo 2

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

2 for kings, and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

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

4 who wills all men to be saved, and to come to an acknowledgment of the truth.

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, -the man Christ Jesus,

6 who gave himself a ransom for all; -of which the testimony is in its proper season:

7 for which I was appointed a herald and an Apostle, (I speak the truth, I do not falsify,) a teacher to the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8 I will, therefore, that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and disputings.

9 I like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in decent apparel, with modesty and sobriety, not with plaited hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly raiment:

10 but (which becomes women professing godliness,) with good works.

11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission:

12 for I do not allow a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over a man, but to be silent;

13 for Adam was first formed, then Eve.

14 Besides, Adam was not deceived: but the woman, being deceived, was in transgression.

15 However, she shall be saved through child-bearing, if they live in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.
