1: I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men; 2: for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity; 3: for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God, 4: who desires that all men should be saved and come to [the] knowledge of [the] truth. 5: For God is one, and [the] mediator of God and men one, [the] man Christ Jesus, 6: who gave himself a ransom for all, the testimony [to be rendered] in its own times; 7: to which I have been appointed a herald and apostle, (I speak [the] truth, I do not lie,) a teacher of [the] nations in faith and truth. 8: I will therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up pious hands, without wrath or reasoning. 9: In like manner also that the women in decent deportment and dress adorn themselves with modesty and discretion, not with plaited [hair] and gold, or pearls, or costly clothing, 10: but, what becomes women making profession of the fear of God, by good works. 11: Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection; 12: but I do not suffer a woman to teach nor to exercise authority over man, but to be in quietness; 13: for Adam was formed first, then Eve: 14: and Adam was not deceived; but the woman, having been deceived, was in transgression. 15: But she shall be preserved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with discretion.
