ALT(i) 1 Therefore, I urge first of all [for] petition to be continually made, prayers, intercessions, [and] thanksgivings, on behalf of all people: 2 on behalf of kings and the ones being in positions of authority, so that we shall lead a tranquil and peaceful life in all godliness and dignity. 3 For this [is] good and acceptable before God our Savior, 4 who desires all people [or, peoples] to be saved and to come to a full [or, true] knowledge of the truth. 5 For [there is] one God and one Mediator [between] God and people, a Person, Christ Jesus, 6 the One having given Himself [as] a ransom on behalf of all, the testimony in its own times, 7 in regard to which I was put [or, appointed] [as] a preacher and apostle (I am telling [the] truth in Christ, I am not lying), [as] a teacher of Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 Therefore, I want men to be praying in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension [or, doubting]. 9 In the same manner also [I want] the women to be adorning themselves in sensible apparel [or, behavior], with modesty and decency [or, self-control], not with braided hair [or, elaborate hairstyles] or gold or pearls or very costly clothing, 10 but with good works, which is fitting [or, proper] for women professing godliness. 11 Let a woman be learning in quietness with all submission. 12 But I do not permit a woman to be teaching, nor to be exerting dominance over a man, but to be in quietness. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, has come to be in transgression. 15 But she will be saved through the bearing of children, if they remain in faith and love and sanctification, with decency [or, self-control].
