A Call to Prayer

1 First of all, then, I urge that 1entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 2for kings and all who are in aauthority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and bdignity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of 3God our Savior, 4 4who desires all men to be 5saved and to 6come to the cknowledge of the truth. 5 For there is 7one God, and 8one mediator also between God and men, the 9man Christ Jesus, 6 who 10gave Himself as a ransom for all, the 11testimony dgiven at e12the proper time. 7 13For this I was appointed a fpreacher and 14an apostle (15I am telling the truth, I am not lying ) as a teacher of 16the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 Therefore 17I want the men 18in every place to pray, 19lifting up 20holy hands, without wrath and dissension.

Women Instructed

9 Likewise, I want 21women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, gmodestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, 10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. 11 22A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. 12 23But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13 24For it was Adam who was first hcreated, and then Eve. 14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but 25the woman being deceived, ifell into transgression. 15 But women will be jpreserved through the bearing of children if they continue in 26faith and love and sanctity with kself-restraint.
