1 Timothy 2:1  1 Timothy 3:16

1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that 1apetitions, prayers, 2intercessions, thanksgivings be made on behalf of ball men;

2 On behalf of akings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a 1quiet and tranquil life in all 2bgodliness and 3cgravity.

3 This is good and aacceptable in the sight of our bSavior God,

4 Who desires 1aall men to be bsaved and to come to the 2cfull knowledge of the dtruth.

5 For there is 1aone God and one 2bMediator of God and men, the 3cman Christ Jesus,

6 Who 1gave Himself as a 2aransom for ball, the 3ctestimony to be borne in dits own times.

7 For which I was aappointed a 1herald and an apostle (I speak the truth; I do not blie), a 2teacher of the cGentiles in 3dfaith and etruth.

8 I desire therefore that men 1pray in every place, alifting up 2holy 3bhands, without 4wrath and 5creasoning;

9 Similarly, that women aadorn themselves in 1proper clothing with 2modesty and 3bsobriety, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly clothing,

10 But, what abefits women professing 1bgodly reverence, by good works.

11 Let a woman learn in 1aquietness in all 2bsubjection;

12 But I do not permit a awoman to 1teach or to assert authority over a man, but to be in 2quietness.

13 For 1Adam was 2formed first, then Eve;

14 And 1Adam was not deceived; but the 2woman, having been quite adeceived, has fallen into transgression.

15 But she will be saved through her 1childbearing, if they remain in 2afaith and love and bholiness with csobriety.


1 aFaithful is the word: If anyone 1aspires to the 2overseership, he desires a good work.

2 aThe 1boverseer then must be 2without reproach, the 3husband of cone wife, 4dtemperate, 5of a esober mind, 6orderly, 7fhospitable, 8apt to gteach;

3 1Not an aexcessive drinker; 2not a striker, but 3bgentle; 4cnot contentious; 5not dfond of money;

4 One who 1amanages well his own house, having his children in subjection with all 2bgravity

5 (But if one does not know how to manage his own house, how will he care for the achurch of God?);

6 Not a 1new convert, lest being 2ablinded with pride he fall into the 3judgment suffered by the devil.

7 And he also must have a 1agood testimony from 2those outside, that he may not fall into reproach and the 3bsnare of the 4devil.

8 1aDeacons must similarly be grave, 2not double-tongued, 3not baddicted to much wine, 4not cgreedy for base gain;

9 aHolding the 1bmystery of the cfaith in a 2dpure conscience.

10 And these also must first 1be aproved; then let them 2minister if they are 3bunreprovable.

11 1Women similarly must be grave, 2not aslanderers, 3btemperate, 4faithful in all things.

12 Deacons must be 1husbands of aone wife, 2bmanaging their children and their own houses well.

13 For those who have 1ministered well obtain for themselves a 2good standing and 3much boldness in afaith, which is in Christ Jesus.

14 These things I write to you, hoping to come to you shortly.

15 But if I delay, I write that you may know 1how one ought to conduct himself in the 2ahouse of God, which is the bchurch of the 3cliving God, the 4dpillar and base of the 5etruth.

16 And 1confessedly, great is the 2amystery of bgodliness: 3He who was 4cmanifested in the dflesh, 5Justified in the Spirit, 6Seen by angels, 7Preached among the nations, 8Believed on in the world, 9Taken up in glory.
