1 Timothy 2
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1I BESEECH you, therefore, first of all to offer to God, petitions, prayers, supplications, and thanksgiving for all men, 2For kings and for all in authority; that we may live a quiet and peaceable life, in all purity and Godliness. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour: 4Who desires all men to be saved and to return to the knowledge of the truth. 5For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6Who gave himself a ransom for all, a testimony which came in due time. 7For that testimony I was appointed a preacher and an apostle; I tell the truth and I lie not; and I became the teacher of the Gentiles in a true faith.

8I wish, therefore, that men pray everywhere, lifting up their holy hands, without anger and doubting thoughts.

9In like manner also, let the apparel of women be simple and their adornment be modest and refined; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10But let them be engaged in good works, as is becoming women who profess fear of God. 11Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12I do not think it seemly for a woman to debate publicly or otherwise usurp the authority of men but should be silent. 13For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and she transgressed the law. 15Nevertheless, if her posterity continue in faith and have holiness and chastity, she will live, through them.
