Chapter 2

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 high place; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and gravity.  

 

 


3


 

  This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  

 

 


4


 

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

 

 


5


 

  For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, [himself] man, Christ Jesus,  

 

 


6


 

  who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony [to be borne] in its own times;  

 

 


7


 

  whereunto I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I speak the truth, I lie not), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.  

 

 


8


 

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

 

 


9


 

  In like manner, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefastness and sobriety; not with braided hair, and gold or pearls or costly raiment;  

 

 


10


 

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

 

 


11


 

  Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection.  

 

 


12


 

  But I permit not a woman to teach, nor to have dominion over a man, but to be in quietness.  

 

 


13


 

  For Adam was first formed, then Eve;  

 

 


14


 

  and Adam was not beguiled, but the woman being beguiled hath fallen into transgression:  

 

 


15


 

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