New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 First, I want all of you to pray for everyone. Ask God to bless them. Give thanks for them. 1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--
2 Pray for kings. Pray for all who are in authority. Pray that we will live peaceful and quiet lives. And pray that we will be godly and holy. 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
3 That is good. It pleases God our Savior. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
4 He wants everyone to be saved. He wants them to come to know the truth. 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
5 There is only one God. And there is only one go-between for God and human beings. He is the man Christ Jesus. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 He gave himself to pay for the sins of everyone. That was a witness given by God at just the right time. 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all men--the testimony given in its proper time.
7 I was appointed to be a messenger and an apostle to preach the good news. I am telling the truth. I'm not lying. God appointed me to be a teacher of the true faith to those who aren't Jews. 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 everywhere to pray. I want them to lift up holy hands. I don't want them to be angry when they pray. I don't want them to argue. 8 I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing.
9 I also want women to dress simply. They should wear clothes that are right and proper. They shouldn't braid their hair. They shouldn't wear gold or pearls. They shouldn't spend too much on 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 put on good works as if they were their clothes. That is proper for women who claim to worship God. 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 When a woman is learning, she should be quiet. She should follow the leaders in every way. 11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.
12 I do not let women teach. I do not let them have authority over men. They must be quiet. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
13 Adam was made first. Then Eve was made. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
14 Adam was not the one who was tricked. 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 Will women be saved by having children? Only if they keep on believing, loving, and leading a holy life in a proper way. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
