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 all people 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 Messiah Yeshua, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times; 7 to which I was appointed a proclaimer and an emissary (I am telling the truth in Messiah, not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and doubting. 9
In 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; 10
but (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works. 11
Let a woman learn in quietness with full submission. 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 Havah. 14
Adam wasn’t deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience; 15
but she will be saved through her childbearing, if they continue in faith, love, and sanctification with sobriety.
