1st Timothy 1

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

Chapter 2

1

 I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: 

2

 for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. 

3

 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Savior; 

4

 who desires to have all men to be saved, and come to full knowledge of the truth. 

5

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

6

 who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times; 

7

 to which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth in Christ, not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 

8

 I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 

9

 In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, and gold or pearls or costly clothing; 

10

 but (which becomes women professing godliness) through good works. 

11

 Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection. 

12

 But I don't permit a woman to teach, nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness. 

13

 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 

14

 Adam wasn't deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience; 

15

 but she will be saved through her child-bearing, if they continue in faith, love, and sanctification with sobriety. 

1st Timothy 3
