1 Timothy 2 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He exhorts to pray for all people. He will not have women in showy attire, nor to teach in the congregation, but to be in silence and to obey their husbands.

I exhort therefore that, above all things, prayers, supplications, intercessions, and giving of thanks be had for all people, for kings and for all that are in authority, that we may live a quiet and a peaceable life in all godliness and sanctity. For that is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Saviour, who would have all people saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and man, which is the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself a ransom for all, that it should be testified at his time. For this I am ordained a preacher and an apostle. I speak the truth in Christ, and do not speak falsely, being the teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up pure hands, without wrath or doubting. Likewise also the women, that they dress nicely, with modesty and discreet behaviour – not with broided hair, or gold or pearls, or costly array, 10 but as becomes women who profess the worshipping of God through good works.

11 Let the woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to have authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, and then Eve. 14 Also, Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived, and was in transgression. 15 Notwithstanding, through the bearing of children they may be preserved, if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with discretion.
