NHEB(i) 1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings, be made for all people: 2 for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; 4 who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and humanity, a human, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times; 7 to which I was appointed a proclaimer and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and doubting. 9 In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing; 10 but (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection. 12 But I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 Adam was not deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience; 15 but she will be delivered through the childbirth, if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with good judgment.
