1First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made for all men,
2for sovereigns and all those who are in authority, in order that we lead a calm and peaceable life in all reverence and seriousness.
3For this is good and acceptable before Elohim our Saviour,
4who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
5For there is one Elohim,#1 Cor. 8:6, Eph. 4:6, Mk. 12:29-34. and one Mediator between Elohim and men, the Man Messiah יהושע,
6who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be witnessed in its own seasons,
7for which I was appointed a proclaimer and an emissary – I am speaking the truth in Messiah and not lying – a teacher of the gentiles in belief and truth.
8So I resolve that the men pray everywhere, lifting up hands that are set-apart, without wrath and disputing.
9Likewise, that the women dress themselves becomingly, with decency and sensibleness, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly garments,
10but with good works,#Mt. 16:27. which is becoming for women undertaking worship of Elohim.
11Let a woman learn in silence, in all subjection.
12But I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, rather, to be in silence.
13Because Aḏam was formed first, then Ḥawwah.
14And Aḏam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, fell into transgression.
15But she shall be saved in childbearing if they continue in belief, and love, and set-apartness, with sensibleness.
