CLV(i) 1 I am entreating, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, pleadings, thanksgiving be made for all mankind, 2 for kings and all those being in a superior station, that we may be leading a mild and quiet life in all devoutness and gravity, 3 for this is ideal and welcome in the sight of our Saviour, God, 4 Who wills that all mankind be saved and come into a realization of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one Mediator of God and mankind, a Man, Christ Jesus, 6 Who is giving Himself a correspondent Ransom for all (the testimony in its own eras), 7 for which I was appointed a herald and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the nations in knowledge and truth." 8 I am intending, then, that men pray in every place, lifting up benign hands, apart from anger and reasoning." 9 Similarly, women also are to be adorning themselves in raiment, decorously, with modesty and sanity, not with braids and gold, or pearls or costly vesture, 10 but (what is becoming to women professing a reverence for God) with good works. 11 Let a woman be learning in quietness with all subjection. 12 Now I am not permitting a woman to be teaching nor yet to be domineering over a man,, but to be in quietness" 13 (for Adam was first molded, thereafter Eve, 14 and Adam was not seduced, yet the woman, being deluded, has come to be in the transgression)." 15 Yet she shall be saved through the child bearing, if ever they should be remaining in faith and love and holiness with sanity."
