First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, (1 Timothy 2:1)

for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. (1 Timothy 2:2)

This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, (1 Timothy 2:3)

who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:4)

For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, (1 Timothy 2:5)

who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time. (1 Timothy 2:6)

For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. (1 Timothy 2:7)

Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension. (1 Timothy 2:8)

Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, (1 Timothy 2:9)

but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. (1 Timothy 2:10)

A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. (1 Timothy 2:11)

But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. (1 Timothy 2:12)

For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. (1 Timothy 2:13)

And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. (1 Timothy 2:14)

But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint. (1 Timothy 2:15)
