And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle--I am telling the truth, I am not lying1--and a teacher2 of the true faith to the Gentiles.38
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands4 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,510
but with good deeds,6 appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.712
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.813
For Adam was formed first, then Eve.914
And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.1015
But womena will be savedb through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love11 and holiness with propriety.
