Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

A Call to Prayer

1I Beseech therefore, first of all, supplications to be made, prayers, entreaties, thanks, for all men; 2For kings, and all them being in eminence; that we may lead a gentle and quiet life, in all devotion and gravity. 3For this good and acceptable before our Saviour God; 4Who wills all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5For one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6Having given himself a ransom for all, a testimony in his own time. 7For which I was placed a herald, and the sent, (I speak truth in Christ, I lie not;) a teacher of the nations in faith and truth.

8I will therefore men shall pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without anger and reasoning.

Instructions to Women

9And likewise the women in well arranged simplicity, with modesty and discretion, arrange themselves; not in tresses, or gold, or pearls, or expensive clothing; 10But (what become women professing religious worship) with good works. 11Let the woman, in freedom from care, learn in all subjection. 12And I trust not the woman to teach, neither to exercise authority over the man, but to be in freedom from care. 13For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, was in the transgression. 15And she shall be saved through the bringing forth children, if they remain in faith and love and consecration with discretion.
