Timotiyos I 2 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

I urge, therefore, of first importance, davening, techinnah (supplication), tefillah (prayer), bakkashot (petitions), and hodayah (thanksgiving) be made on behalf of kol Bnei Adam (all mankind),

On behalf of malchei eretz (kings) and on behalf of all the ones in authority, that we may lead a life of chayyei menuchah (life of rest) in all chasidus (piety) and yirat Shomayim (reverence).

This is good and acceptable before Hashem Moshieynu,

Who wants kol Bnei Adam to have Yeshu’at Eloheynu (the Salvation of our G-d) and to come to da’as HaEmes (knowledge of the truth).

For Adonoi echad hu (there is one G-d) and there is also metavekh echad (one melitz, IYOV 33:23, YESHAYAH 43:27; cf. DEVARIM 5:5,22-31), one between Hashem and kol Bnei Adam, the man Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua,

The one who gave his nefesh [YESHAYAH 53:10-12] as a kofer (ransom), on behalf of all. The edut (testimony) of this was given at the right time.

And for this edut I was given the s’michah (ordination) of Hashem as a karoz (herald), a maggid [darshan (preacher) for Moshiach], a Shliach (Moshiach’s emissary) I speak Emes, I do not speak sheker and a [rabbinic] moreh (teacher) for the Nations in emunah and Emes.

I want, therefore, kol bnei Adam to daven in every shul, lifting up yadayim kodesh (holy hands) without ka’as (anger) and madon (strife).

Similarly also nashim (women) should adorn themselves with respectable comportment and tznius (modesty, piety) in appearance and with decency and propriety, not with coiffures and gold or pearls or costly clothing,

10 But with what is proper for nashim professing yirat Shomayim, that is, by means of ma’asim tovim (good works).

11 Let the isha (wife) learn in silence in all submission.

12 I do not allow an isha (wife) either to have teaching authority over or to have hishtaltut (domination, taking control) over [her] man, but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was formed rishonah (first), then Chavah.

14 And Adam was not deceived, but the isha, having been deceived, has come to be in averah (transgression).

15 But womankind will be saved through her childbearing if nashim remain in emunah and ahavah and kedushah with tznius [2:9].

1 Timothy 2 New International Version (NIV)

Instructions on Worship

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles.

Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
