For there is one God1 and one mediator2 between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,36
who gave himself as a ransom4 for all men--the testimony5 given in its proper time.67
And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle--I am telling the truth, I am not lying7--and a teacher8 of the true faith to the Gentiles.98
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands10 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,1110
but with good deeds,12 appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.1312
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.1413
For Adam was formed first, then Eve.1514
And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.1615
But womena will be savedb through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love17 and holiness with propriety.
