1 Timothy 2
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1I exhort, then, first of all, there be made supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, for all men— 2for kings, and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all piety and gravity, 3for this [is] right and acceptable before God our Savior, 4who wills all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the truth; 5for [there is] one God, also one mediator of God and of men—the man Christ Jesus, 6who gave Himself [as] a ransom for all—the testimony in its own times— 7in regard to which I was set a preacher and apostle—truth I say in Christ, I do not lie—a teacher of nations, in faith and truth.

8I intend, therefore, that men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, apart from anger and deliberation;

9also the women in like manner, in orderly apparel, to adorn themselves with modesty and sobriety, not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or clothing of great price, 10but—which becomes women professing godly piety—through good works. 11Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection, 12and I do not allow a woman to teach, nor to rule a husband, but to be in quietness, 13for Adam was formed first, then Eve, 14and Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, came into transgression, 15and she will be saved through the childbearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.
