1 Timothy 2Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Godliness in Prayer and Worship
2 Therefore, first of all I urge that requests, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people— 2 for kings and all who are in authority[a]—so we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and respectfulness. 3 This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior. 4 He desires all men to be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth. [b] 5 For there is one God[c] and there is one Mediator between God and men[d]—a human, Messiah Yeshua, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all[e]—the testimony at the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a herald and an emissary (I am telling the truth; I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faithfulness and truth.
8 So I desire all men to pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands,[f] without anger and argument. 9 Likewise, women are to adorn themselves in appropriate clothing with modesty and sound judgment—not in seductive hairstyles[g] and gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but what is suitable for women claiming godliness, through good deeds. 11 Let a woman receive training in a quiet demeanor with complete respect for order. 12 But I do not allow a woman to train or dictate to a man, but to be in a quiet demeanor. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. [h] 14 Also Adam was not deceived but the woman—being deceived, she fell into transgression. [i] 15 Nevertheless, she will be sustained through childbearing[j]—if they continue in faithfulness and love and holiness, with sound judgment.
