1 Timothy 2:1-8 NRS

1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone,
2 for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity.
3 This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human,
6 who gave himself a ransom for all —this was attested at the right time.
7 For this I was appointed a herald and an apostle (I am telling the truth, a I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
