Chapter 2

1


 

  My desire is, first of all, that you will make requests and prayers and give praise for all men;  

 

 


2


 

  For kings and all those in authority; so that we may have a calm and quiet life in all fear of God and serious behaviour.  

 

 


3


 

  This is good and pleasing in the eyes of God our Saviour;  

 

 


4


 

  Whose desire is that all men may have salvation and come to the knowledge of what is true.  

 

 


5


 

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

 

 


6


 

  Who gave himself as an offering for all; witness of which was to be given at the right time;  

 

 


7


 

  And of this I became a preacher and an Apostle (what I say is true, not false,) and a teacher of the Gentiles in the true faith.  

 

 


8


 

  It is my desire, then, that in every place men may give themselves to prayer, lifting up holy hands, without wrath or argument.  

 

 


9


 

  And that women may be dressed in simple clothing, with a quiet and serious air; not with twisted hair and gold or jewels or robes of great price;  

 

 


10


 

  But clothed with good works, as is right for women who are living in the fear of God.  

 

 


11


 

  Let a woman quietly take the place of a learner and be under authority.  

 

 


12


 

  In my opinion it is right for a woman not to be a teacher, or to have rule over a man, but to be quiet.  

 

 


13


 

  For Adam was first formed, then Eve;  

 

 


14


 

  And Adam was not taken by deceit, but the woman, being tricked, became a wrongdoer.  

 

 


15


 

  But if they go on in faith and love and holy self-control, she will be kept safe at the time of childbirth.
