A Call to Prayer

2 2for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
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 knowledge 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 given at 12the proper time.
7 13For this I was appointed a preacher and 14an apostle (15I am telling the truth, I am not lying ) as a teacher of 16the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Women Instructed

10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness.
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 created, and then Eve.
14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but 25the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.
15 But women will be preserved through the bearing of children if they continue in 26faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.
