1 Timothy 2

1 Timothy 2

Instructions on Prayer
1First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, 2for kings and all those who are in authority,#Ezr 6:10; Rm 13:1; 1Co 2:1 so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness#2Pt 1:3 and dignity.#1Tm 3:4; Ti 2:7 3This is good, and it pleases God our Savior,#1Tm 1:1 4who wants everyone#Ti 2:11 to be saved#Ezk 18:23,32; Jn 3:17; 1Tm 4:10; Ti 2:11; 2Pt 3:9 and to come to the knowledge of the truth.#Jn 14:6,17
5For there is one God#Dt 6:4; Gl 3:20 and one mediator#Heb 8:6 between God and mankind, the man#Jn 1:14; Php 2:7; 3:3; 1Jn 4:2; 5:20 Christ Jesus, 6who gave himself as a ransom for all,#Mt 20:28; Gl 1:4 a testimony at the proper time.
7For this I was appointed a herald, an apostle#Eph 3:7–8; 1Tm 1:11; 2Tm 1:11 (I am telling the truth;#2:7 Other mss add in Christ I am not lying), and a teacher of the Gentiles#Ac 9:15 in faith and truth.
Instructions to Men and Women
8Therefore, I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument.#Mk 7:21; Lk 9:46–47; 24:38; Rm 14:1; Php 2:14 9Also, the women are to dress themselves in modest clothing,#1Pt 3:3 with decency and good sense, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold,#Rv 3:18 pearls, or expensive apparel, 10but with good works,#2Co 9:8; Gl 3:10 as is proper for women who profess to worship God. 11A woman is to learn quietly with full submission.#1Co 14:34; Ti 2:5 12I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to remain quiet. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve.#Gn 2:7,22; 3:16; 1Co 11:8–12 14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed.#Gn 3:6,13; 2Co 11:3 15But she will be saved through childbearing, if they continue in faith, love, and holiness,#1Th 3:12–4:10 with good sense.
