1 I exhort, therefore, first of all, that there be madesupplications, prayers, intercessions, thankgivings, in behalf of all men,
2 In behalf of kings, and all them who are, in eminent station; in order that, an undisturbed, and quiet life, we may lead, in all godliness and gravity:
3 This, is comely and acceptable before our Saviour God,
4 Who willeth, all men, to be saved, and, unto a personal knowledge of truth, to come;
5 For there is, one, God, one, mediator also, between God and men,a manChrist Jesus:
6 Who gave himself a ransom in behalf of all,the testimony, in its own fit times:
7 Unto which, I, have been appointed proclaimer and apostleTruth I speak, I utter no falsehooda teacher of nations, in faith and truth.
8 I am minded, therefore, thatthe men in every place be offering prayer, uplifting hands of lovingkindness, apart from anger and disputings;
9 In the same way, that, the women, in seemly attire, with modesty and sober-mindedness, be adorning themselves,not with plaitings and ornamentation of gold, or with pearls, or with costly apparel,
10 But, which becometh women promising godliness, through means of good works.
11 Let, a woman, in quietness, be learning in all submission;
12 But, teachingunto a woman, I do not permit, nor yet to have authority over a man,but to be in quietness;
13 For, Adam, first was formed, then Eve,
14 And, Adam, was not deceived, whereas, the woman, having been wholly deceived, hath come to be, in transgression;
15 She shall be saved, however, through means of the child-bearing,if they abide in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobermindedness. Faithful, the saying.
