This is good, and pleases1 God our Savior,24
who wants3 all men4 to be saved5 and to come to a knowledge of the truth.65
For there is one God7 and one mediator8 between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,96
who gave himself as a ransom10 for all men--the testimony11 given in its proper time.127
And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle--I am telling the truth, I am not lying13--and a teacher14 of the true faith to the Gentiles.158
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands16 in prayer, without anger or disputing.
I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,1710
but with good deeds,18 appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.1912
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.2013
For Adam was formed first, then Eve.21
