71For this I was appointed a apreacher and 2an apostle (3I am telling the truth, I am not lying ) as a teacher of 4the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8Therefore5I want the men6in everyplace to pray, 7lifting up 8holyhands, withoutwrath and dissension.
9Likewise, I want 9women to adornthemselves with properclothing, bmodestly and discreetly, not with braidedhair and goldorpearlsorcostlygarments,
but rather by means of goodworks, as is proper for womenmaking a claim to godliness.
1110A woman must quietlyreceiveinstruction with entiresubmissiveness.
1211But I do not allow a woman to teachorexerciseauthorityover a man, but to remainquiet.
1312For it was Adam who was firstccreated, and thenEve.
And it was not Adam who was deceived, but 13the woman being deceived, dfell into transgression.
But women will be epreservedthrough the bearing of childrenif they continue in 14faith and love and sanctity with fself-restraint.
