Chapter 2

1st Tim. 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

1st Tim. 2:2 for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

1st Tim. 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;

1st Tim. 2:4 who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the reality.

1st Tim. 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus;

1st Tim. 2:6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be a testimony in His own time.

1st Tim. 2:7 Into which I have been placed a herald, and an apostle, I speak the reality in Christ, and do not lie, a teacher of the nations in faith and reality.

1st Tim. 2:8 Therefore I want husbands to pray everywhere, lifting holy hands, apart from rage and discord.

1st Tim. 2:9 In like manner also, that wives adorn themselves in appropriate decorum, with modesty and sober mindedness; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly clothing;

1st Tim. 2:10 but that which becomes wives promising godly respect with good works.

1st Tim. 2:11 Let the wives learn in rest with all submission.

1st Tim. 2:12 But I do not turn over to a wife the matter of teaching, nor to domineer her husband, but to be at rest.

1st Tim. 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve

1st Tim. 2:14 and Adam was not deceived, but the wife being thoroughly deceived was in the violation.

1st Tim. 2:15 Nonetheless they will be saved in childbearing if they abide in faith and love and sanctification with a sound mind.
