The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy
1 – I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men:
2 – For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.
3 – For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour,
4 – Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
5 – For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:
6 – Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times.
7 – Whereunto I am appointed a preacher and an apostle, (I say the truth, I lie not,) a doctor of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 – I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger and contention.
9 – In like manner women also in decent apparel: adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety, not with plaited hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly attire,
10 – But as it becometh women professing godliness, with good works.
11 – Let the woman learn in silence, with all subjection.
12 – But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the man: but to be in silence.
13 – For Adam was first formed; then Eve.
14 – And Adam was not seduced; but the woman being seduced, was in the transgression.
15 – Yet she shall be saved through childbearing; if she continue in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.
