The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

Chapter 2

1

  I exhort then, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men;

2

  including kings and all who are in high station, in order that we may live peaceful and tranquil lives with all godliness and gravity.

3

  This is right, and is pleasing in the sight of God our Saviour,

4

  who is willing for all mankind to be saved and come to a full knowledge of the truth.

5

  For there is but one God and but one Mediator between God and men--Christ Jesus, Himself man;

6

  who gave Himself as the redemption price for all--a fact testified to at its own appointed time,

7

  and of which I have been appointed a herald and an Apostle (I am speaking the truth: it is not a fiction), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8

  So then I would have the men everywhere pray, lifting to God holy hands which are unstained with anger or strife;

9

  and I would have the women dress becomingly, with modesty and self-control, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly clothes,

10

  but--as befits women making a claim to godliness--with the ornament of good works.

11

  A woman should quietly learn from others with entire submissiveness.

12

  I do not permit a woman to teach, nor have authority over a man, but she must remain silent.

13

  For Adam was formed first, and then Eve;

14

  and Adam was not deceived, but his wife was thoroughly deceived, and so became involved in transgression.

15

  Yet a woman will be brought safely through childbirth if she and her husband continue to live in faith and love and growing holiness, with habitual self-restraint.

1st Timothy 3
