Instructions for men and women

8 Therefore, I want men to pray everywhere by lifting up hands that are holy, without anger or argument. 9 In the same way, I want women to enhance their appearance with clothing that is modest and sensible, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold, pearls, or expensive clothes. 10 They should make themselves attractive by doing good, which is appropriate for women who claim to honor God. 11 A wifea should learn quietly with complete submission. 12 I don't allow a wifeb to teach or to control her husband.c Instead, she should be a quiet listener. 13 Adam was formed first, and then Eve. 14 Adam wasn't deceived, but rather his wifed became the one who stepped over the line because she was completely deceived. 15 But a wifee will be brought safely through giving birth to their children,f if they both continue in faith, love, and holiness, together with self-control.
