Chapter 2

A Call to Prayer

1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men,
2 for kings and all who are in authority [fn], so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity [fn].
3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge [fn] of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given [fn] at the [fn] proper time.
7 For this I was appointed a preacher [fn] and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8 Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension.

Women Instructed

9 Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly [fn] and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments,
10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness.
11 A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness.
12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.
13 For it was Adam who was first created [fn], and then Eve.
14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell [fn] into transgression.
15 But women will be preserved [fn] through the bearing of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self [fn]-restraint.
