Instructions to Men and Women

Therefore, I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument.(A) Also, the women are to dress themselves in modest clothing,(B) with decency and good sense, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold,(C) pearls, or expensive apparel, 10 but with good works,(D) as is proper for women who affirm that they worship God. 11 A woman should learn in silence with full submission.(E) 12 I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to be silent. 13 For Adam was created first, then Eve.(F) 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed.(G) 15 But she will be saved through childbearing, if she continues[a] in faith, love, and holiness,(H) with good judgment.
