A Call to Prayer

1This then I exhort thee first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings he made for all men; 2particularly for kings, and all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all piety and virtue. 3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour: 4who is willing that all men should be saved, and therefore come 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 to be published in due time, 7for which I was appointed a herald and an apostle. I speak the truth in Christ, I lie not; I am a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8I direct therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands without wrath and debate:

Instructions to Women

9likewise that women dress themselves in decent apparel with modesty and prudence, not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly garments; 10but in good works, as becometh women professing godliness. 11Let the woman learn in silence with all submission: but I permit not a woman to teach, 12nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be silent. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not seduced by the serpent, but the woman being led astray was first in the transgression. 15Yet shall she be saved through childbirth, if they continue in faith and love, in holiness and modesty.
