The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

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.

1st Timothy 3
