The King James Version Bible

1 Timothy 2:4-13

  1. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

  2. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

  3. Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

  4. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

  5. I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

  6. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

  7. But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

  8. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

  9. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

  10. For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
