Murdock(i) 1 I exhort thee, therefore, first of all, that thou present to God supplication, and prayer, and intercession, and thanksgiving, for all men: 2 for kings and magistrates, that we may dwell in a quiet and tranquil habitation, with all reverence for God, and with purity. 3 For this is good and acceptable before God our life-giver; 4 who would have all men live, and be converted to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For God is one; and the mediator between God and men is one, namely the man Jesus the Messiah; 6 who gave himself a ransom for every man; a testimony that arrived in due time, 7 of which I am constituted a herald and legate. I speak the truth, and do not lie, for I am the teacher of the Gentiles in the belief of the truth. 8 I desire therefore, that men may pray in every place, while they lift up their hands with purity, without wrath, and without disputations. 9 So also, that women appear in a chaste fashion of dress; and that their adorning be with modesty and chastity; not with curls, or with gold, or with pearls, or with splendid robes; 10 but with good works, as becometh women who profess reverence for God. 11 Let a woman learn in silence, with all submission: 12 for I do not allow a woman to teach, or to be assuming over the man; but let her remain in stillness. 13 For Adam was first formed, and then Eve. 14 And Adam was not seduced, but the woman was seduced and transgressed the command. 15 Yet she shall live by means of her children, if they continue in the faith, and in love, and in sanctity, and in chastity.
