2:1  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2:2  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

2:3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

2:4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

2:6  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

2:7  Whereunto 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.

2:8  I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

2:9  In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

2:10  But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

2:11  Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

2:12  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

2:13  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

2:14  And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

2:15  Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
