The First Epistle of Saint Paul to Timothy

Chapter 2

Prayers are to be said for all men, because God wills the salvation of all. Women are not to teach.


1
I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all men:

2
For kings and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.

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 to the knowledge of the truth.

5
For there is one God: and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:

6
Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times.

7
Whereunto I am appointed a preacher and an apostle (I say the truth, I lie not), a doctor of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8
I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger and contention.

9
In like manner, women also in decent apparel: adorning themselves with modesty and sobriety, not with plaited hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly attire:

10
But, as it 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 use authority over the man: but to be in silence.

13
For Adam was first formed; then Eve.

14
And Adam was not seduced; but the woman, being seduced, was in the transgression.

15
Yet she shall be saved through child bearing; if she continue in faith and love and sanctification with sobriety.
