New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 First, I tell you to pray for all people, asking God for what they need and being thankful to him. 1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--
2 Pray for rulers and for all who have authority so that we can have quiet and peaceful lives full of worship and respect for God. 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 it pleases God our Savior, 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
4 who wants all people to be saved and to know the truth. 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
5 There is one God and one way human beings can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus, who is himself human. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 He gave himself as a payment to free all people. He is proof that came at the right time. 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all men--the testimony given in its proper time.
7 That is why I was chosen to tell the Good News and to be an apostle. (I am telling the truth; I am not lying.) I was chosen to teach those who are not Jews to believe and to know the 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, I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up their hands in a holy manner, without anger and arguments. 8 I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
9 Also, women should wear proper clothes that show respect and self-control, not using braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive 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 Instead, they should do good deeds, which is right for women who say they worship God. 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 Let a woman learn by listening quietly and being ready to cooperate in everything. 11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.
12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to listen quietly, 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
13 because Adam was formed first and then Eve. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not tricked, but the woman was tricked and became a sinner. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.
15 But she will be saved through having children if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
