II. I exhort then, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men;
2for kings, and all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in all godliness and decorum.
3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of our Savior God;
4who desires that all should be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth.
5For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time;
7whereunto I was appointed a preacher, and an apostle (I speak truth, I lie not), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8I desire, therefore, that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and disputing;
9in like manner also that women, in becoming apparel, adorn themselves with modesty and sobriety; not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly raiment;
10but, which becomes women professing godliness, by means of good works.
11Let the woman learn in silence, with all subjection.
12But I permit not the woman to teach, nor to have authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14And Adam was not deceived; but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into transgression.
15But she shall be saved through child-bearing, if they continue in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.
