The Book of 1st Timothy: Chapter 2
|«1st Timothy Chapter 1||1st Timothy Chapter 3»|
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
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.
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;
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
