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 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.

1st Timothy 3
