Ramsay Teaching p. 170 ff. tries to show that, while τεκνογονέω is used in a physical sense in 1 Timothy 5:14, the abstract noun τεκνογονία in 1 Timothy 2:15 points rather to ";the power of maternal instinct"; or ";motherhood."; But it is by no means clear that the writer did not use the two words with the same connotation. In any case it is not likely that, with Ellicott and other commentators, we are to stress the article and in τῆς τεκνογονίας of 1 Timothy 2:15 find a reference to ";the (great) child-bearing,"; i.e. the bearing of Jesus, foreshadowed in Genesis 3:16.
