9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; Or, a not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

10But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

11 Let the woman learn in silence
with all subjection.

12 But I suffer not a woman to
teach, "nor to usurp authority over
the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed,
then Eve.

14 And Y Adam was not deceived,
but the woman being deceived was
in the transgression.

16 Howbeit for this cause I ob-
tained mercy, that in me first Jesus
Christ might shew forth all longsuf-15

which is to come.

9 This is a faithful saying, and
worthy of all acceptation.

10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we "trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

11 These things command and teach.

12 Let no man despise thy youth; but a be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 b Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, d with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.

16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

16 And without controversy great
is the mystery of godliness: God
was manifest in the flesh, justi-
fied in the Spirit, seen of angels,
a preached unto the Gentiles, bbe-1
lieved on in the world, received up
into glory.

16 If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

18 For the Scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

form and truth of that doctrine which he
had learned of him. 15 Phygellus and
Hermogenes, and such like, are noted,
and Onesiphorus is highly commended.
