New Heart English Bible
1I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings, be made for all people: 2for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; 4who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth. 5For there is one God, and one mediator between God and humanity, a human, Christ Jesus, 6who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times; 7to which I was appointed a proclaimer and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the non-Jews in faith and truth.
8I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and doubting.
9In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing; 10but (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works. 11Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection. 12But I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness. 13For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14Adam was not deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience; 15but she will be delivered through the childbirth, if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with good judgment.
