A Call to Prayer

1And so I beg you, first of all, to make supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings for all men, 2for kings, and for all who are in high places, so that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and chastity. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4who wants all men to be saved and to arrive at an acknowledgment of the truth. 5For there is one God, and one mediator of God and of men, the man Christ Jesus, 6who gave himself as a redemption for all, as a testimony in its proper time. 7Of this testimony, I have been appointed a preacher and an Apostle, (I speak the truth, I do not lie) as a teacher of the Gentiles, in faith and in truth.

8Therefore, I want men to pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger or dissension.

Instructions to Women

9Similarly also, women should be dressed fittingly, adorning themselves with compunction and restraint, and not with plaited hair, nor gold, nor pearls, nor costly attire, 10but in a manner proper for women who are professing piety by means of good works. 11Let a woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12For I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to be in authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not seduced, but the woman, having been seduced, was in transgression. 15Yet she will be saved by bearing children, if she has continued in faith and love, and in sanctification accompanied by self-restraint.
