1 Timothy 2

2
Pray for All People
1First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2#Ezra 6:10 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and #ch. 3:4dignified in every way. 3This is good, and #ch. 5:4 it is pleasing in the sight of #ch. 1:1God our Savior, 4who desires #ch. 4:10; Ezek. 18:23, 32 all people to be saved and #2 Tim. 3:7 to come to #2 Tim. 2:25; Titus 1:1; Heb. 10:26the knowledge of the truth. 5For #See Gal. 3:20there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man#2:5 men and man render the same Greek word that is translated people in verses 1 and 4 Christ Jesus, 6#See Matt. 20:28 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is #See 1 Cor. 1:6 the testimony given #ch. 6:15; Titus 1:3; [Gal. 4:4]at the proper time. 7#ch. 1:11; Eph. 3:7, 8; 2 Tim. 1:11 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (#See Rom. 9:1 I am telling the truth, I am not lying), #See Acts 9:15a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8I desire then that #[John 4:21] in every place the men should pray, #Ps. 63:4; 119:48; [Isa. 1:15] lifting #Job 17:9; Ps. 24:4holy hands without anger or quarreling; 9likewise also #1 Pet. 3:3; [Isa. 3:18-23]that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10#[1 Pet. 3:4]but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 11Let a woman learn quietly #Titus 2:5with all submissiveness. 12#[1 Cor. 14:34]I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13#Gen. 1:27; 2:8 For Adam was formed first, #Gen. 2:18, 22then Eve; 14and Adam was not deceived, but #Gen. 3:6, 13the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15Yet she will be saved through #[Gal. 4:4] childbearing—if they continue in #ch. 1:14faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
