1 Timothy 2:11-15 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 A woman learn [she] in silence, with all subjection.

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, neither to have lordship on the husband [neither for to have lordship on the man], but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was first formed, afterward Eve;

14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived, in breaking of the law [in prevarication, or breaking of the law].

15 But she shall be saved by generation of children, if she dwell perfectly in faith, and love, and holiness, with soberness.

1 Timothy 2:11-15 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

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.

  1. 1 Timothy 2:12 The first argument, why it is not lawful for women to teach in the Congregation, because by this means they should be placed above men, for they should be their masters: which is against God’s ordinance.
  2. 1 Timothy 2:13 He proveth this ordinance of God, whereby the woman is subject to man, first by that, that God made the woman after man, for man’s sake.
  3. 1 Timothy 2:14 Then because that after sin God enjoined the woman this punishment, for that the man was deceived by her.
  4. 1 Timothy 2:14 Adam was deceived, but through his wife’s means, and therefore she is worthily for this cause subject to her husband, and ought to be.
  5. 1 Timothy 2:15 He addeth a comfort by the way, that their subjection hindereth not but that women may be saved as well as men, if they behave themselves in those burdens of marriage holily and modestly, with faith and charity.
