Modern Literal Version
[1 Timothy 2]

     2:1 Therefore I am encouraging first of all for supplications, prayers, petitions, thanksgivings to be made* on behalf of all men, 2:2 on behalf of kings and all who are in superiority; in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all devoutness and honesty. 2:3 For* this is good and acceptable in God our Savior's sight; 2:4 who wishes all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth. 2:5 For*there is one God, and one intermediary of God and of men, theman, Christ Jesus, 2:6 who gave himself as a ransom on behalf of all; the testimony given in its own times; 2:7 to which I was appointed* a preacher and an apostle, (I am speaking the truth in Christ, I am not lying), and a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

     2:8 Therefore I will that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath andevil reasoning.

     2:9 Likewise* also, the women to adorn themselves in a respectable array, with modesty and self-discipline; not in hair braids or gold or pearls or a costly garment; 2:10 but with what is suitable to women professing godliness through good works. 2:11 Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection.

     2:12 Now I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to dominate a man, but to be in quietness.

     2:13 For* Adam was first molded, thereafter Eve; 2:14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived; she has become the one in transgression. {Gen 1:17, 2:7-22, 3:6,12}2:15But she will be saved through her childbearing, if they remain in faith and love* and holiness with self-discipline.
