1 Timothy 2

1 Therefore I am encouraging first of all that supplications, prayers, petitions, thanksgivings, be made* on behalf of all men, 2 on behalf of kings and all who are in superior, stations; in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness* and honesty. 3 For* this is good and acceptable in God our Savior' s sight; 4 who wishes all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth. 5 For* there is one God, and one intermediary of God and of men, the man, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom on behalf of all; the testimony given in its own times; 7 to which I was appointed* a preacher and an apostle, (I am speaking the truth in Christ, I am not lying), and a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

8 Therefore I will that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and evil reasoning.

9 Likewise* also, the women to adorn themselves in a respectable array, with modesty and self, discipline; not in hair braids or gold or pearls or costly garments; 10 but with what is suitable to women professing godliness through good works. 11 Let a woman learn in quietness in all subjection.

12 Now I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to dominate a man, but to be in quietness.

13 For* Adam was first molded, thereafter Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, has become the one in transgression; 15 but she will be saved through her childbearing, if they remain in faith and love* and holiness with self, discipline.

{1Tim 3: 1-7 & Titus 1: 5-9 Congregational leaders. }



{' Unimpeachable, ' (below, G423), ' irreproachable, ' (Tit 1, G410), are both in the qualifications of the Lord' s earthly congregation' s leadership, described in various Bible versions and locations within as: elders, bishops, overseers, pastors, shepherds, presbyters; (all terms are always plural in the Bible). These words do not translate well into English. They are simply a description of a person not under an accusation by an enemy or legal system or better as under any kind of accusation, this person is blameless, guiltless and has an impeccable reputation. Another note:' children' is plural in Greek. }
