1. I exhort, therefore, first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men;
2. For kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and respectability.
3. For this is good and acceptable before God our Savior,
6. Who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony of which is to be preached in its appointed times.
7. For this purpose I was ordained a preacher and an apostle (I speak the truth in Christ—I do not lie), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8. Therefore, I desire that men everywhere pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and evil opinions.
9. In like manner also, let the women adorn themselves with clothing that shows modesty and discretion, not with elaborate braidings of the hair, or with gold, or pearls, or expensive apparel;
10. But with that which is fitting for women who profess to have reverence for God—with good works.
11. Let a woman learn in quietness and be submissive in every respect.
12. For I do not permit 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;Adam knowingly sinned but the woman came to be in transgression by being deceived.
15. But she shall be saved through the childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and sanctification with self-control.
