GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 First of all, I encourage you to make petitions, prayers, intercessions, and prayers of thanks for all people, 1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--
2 for rulers, and for everyone who has authority over us. Pray for these people so that we can have a quiet and peaceful life always lived in a godly and reverent way. 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
3 This is good and pleases God our Savior. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
4 He wants all people to be saved and to learn the truth. 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
5 There is one God. There is also one mediator between God and humans--a human, Christ Jesus. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 He sacrificed himself for all people to free them from their sins. This message is valid for every era. 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all men--the testimony given in its proper time.
7 I was appointed to spread this Good News and to be an apostle to teach people who are not Jewish about faith and truth. I'm telling you the truth. I'm not lying. 7 And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle--I am telling the truth, I am not lying--and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.
8 I want men to offer prayers everywhere. They should raise their hands in prayer after putting aside their anger and any quarrels they have with anyone. 8 I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
9 I want women to show their beauty by dressing in appropriate clothes that are modest and respectable. Their beauty will be shown by what they do, not by their hair styles or the gold jewelry, pearls, or expensive clothes they wear. 9 I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,
10 This is what is proper for women who claim to have reverence for God. 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 A woman must learn in silence, in keeping with her position. 11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.
12 I don't allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man. Instead, she should be quiet. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
13 After all, Adam was formed first, then Eve. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 Besides that, Adam was not deceived. It was the woman who was deceived and sinned. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
15 However, she [and all women] will be saved through the birth of the child, if they lead respectable lives in faith, love, and holiness. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
