King James Version1 Timothy2

1 Timothy

1 I ex­hort there­fore, that, first of all, sup­pli­ca­tions, prayers, in­ter­ces­sions, and giv­ing of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in au­thor­i­ty; that we may lead a qui­et and peace­able life in all god­li­ness and hon­esty. 3 For this is good and ac­cept­able in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowl­edge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one me­di­a­tor be­tween God and men, the man Christ Je­sus; 6 Who gave him­self a ran­som for all, to be tes­ti­fied in due time. 7 Where­un­to I am or­dained a preach­er, and an apos­tle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not; ) a teach­er of the Gen­tiles in faith and ver­i­ty. 8 I will there­fore that men pray ev­ery where, lift­ing up holy hands, with­out wrath and doubt­ing. 9 In like man­ner al­so, that wom­en adorn them­selves in mod­est ap­par­el, with shame­faced­ness and so­bri­ety; not with broid­ed hair, or gold, or pearls, or cost­ly ar­ray; 10 But (which be­cometh wom­en pro­fess­ing god­li­ness) with good works. 11 Let the wom­an learn in si­lence with all sub­jec­tion. 12 But I suf­fer not a wom­an to teach, nor to usurp au­thor­i­ty over the man, but to be in si­lence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not de­ceived, but the wom­an be­ing de­ceived was in the trans­gres­sion. 15 Notwith­stand­ing she shall be saved in child­bear­ing, if they con­tin­ue in faith and char­i­ty and ho­li­ness with so­bri­ety.
