I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,
for which I am ordained a preacher and an apostle (I speak the truth in Christ and lie not), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
It is my will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting.
