1 Timothy 2:5-3:10 NASB
5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at
the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith
and truth. 8 Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension.
9 Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments,
10 but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. 11 A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness.
12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve.
14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 But women will be preserved through the bearing
of children if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.
1 It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. 2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach,
the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free
from the love of money. 4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity 5 (but if a man does
not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), 6 and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited
and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil. 7 And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall
into reproach and the snare of the devil.
faith with a clear conscience. 10 These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.
