THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL
IV. Prayer for Man's Salvation
1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that 1apetitions, prayers, 2intercessions, thanksgivings be made on behalf of ball men;
2 On behalf of akings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a 1quiet and tranquil life in all 2bgodliness and 3cgravity.
3 This is good and aacceptable in the sight of our bSavior God,
4 Who desires 1aall men to be bsaved and to come to the 2cfull knowledge of the dtruth.
5 For there is 1aone God and one 2bMediator of God and men, the 3cman Christ Jesus,
6 Who 1gave Himself as a 2aransom for ball, the 3ctestimony to be borne in dits own times.
7 For which I was aappointed a 1herald and an apostle (I speak the truth; I do not blie), a 2teacher of the cGentiles in 3dfaith and etruth.
V. The Normal Life in the Church
8 I desire therefore that men 1pray in every place, alifting up 2holy 3bhands, without 4wrath and 5creasoning;
9 Similarly, that women aadorn themselves in 1proper clothing with 2modesty and 3bsobriety, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly clothing,
10 But, what abefits women professing 1bgodly reverence, by good works.
11 Let a woman learn in 1aquietness in all 2bsubjection;
12 But I do not permit a awoman to 1teach or to assert authority over a man, but to be in 2quietness.
13 For 1Adam was 2formed first, then Eve;
14 And 1Adam was not deceived; but the 2woman, having been quite adeceived, has fallen into transgression.
15 But she will be saved through her 1childbearing, if they remain in 2afaith and love and bholiness with csobriety.
