Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 I exhort then, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men; 1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--
2 including kings and all who are in high station, in order that we may live peaceful and tranquil lives with all godliness and gravity. 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
3 This is right, and is pleasing in the sight of God our Saviour, 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
4 who is willing for all mankind to be saved and come to a full knowledge of the truth. 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is but one God and but one Mediator between God and men--Christ Jesus, Himself man; 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave Himself as the redemption price for all--a fact testified to at its own appointed time, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all men--the testimony given in its proper time.
7 and of which I have been appointed a herald and an Apostle (I am speaking the truth: it is not a fiction), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 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 So then I would have the men everywhere pray, lifting to God holy hands which are unstained with anger or strife; 8 I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
9 and I would have the women dress becomingly, with modesty and self-control, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly clothes, 9 I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,
10 but--as befits women making a claim to godliness--with the ornament of good works. 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 A woman should quietly learn from others with entire submissiveness. 11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.
12 I do not permit a woman to teach, nor have authority over a man, but she must remain silent. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, and then Eve; 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 and Adam was not deceived, but his wife was thoroughly deceived, and so became involved in transgression. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
15 Yet a woman will be brought safely through childbirth if she and her husband continue to live in faith and love and growing holiness, with habitual self-restraint. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
