1 Timothy 2 (WEBP)

[1] I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks be made for all men,
[2] for kings and all who are in high places, that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence.
[3] For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
[4] who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.
[5] For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
[6] who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony at the proper time,
[7] to which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am telling the truth in Christ, not lying—a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
[8] I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and doubting.
[9] In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety, not§ with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing,
[10] but with good works, which is appropriate for women professing godliness.
[11] Let a woman learn in quietness with full submission.
[12] But I don’t permit a woman to teach, nor to exercise authority over a man, but to be in quietness.
[13] For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
[14] Adam wasn’t deceived, but the woman, being deceived, has fallen into disobedience;
[15] but she will be saved through her childbearing, if they continue in faith, love, and holiness with sobriety.

1 Timothy 2:9 The word for “not” is the negative particle “μη” which denies an expected idea, as opposed to the usual word for “not” (ου) which denies a fact. Thus “μη” in this context is denying an expected idea (that women can be properly dressed without good works).

King James w/Strong’s #s

1 Timothy 2 (KJVS)

[1] I exhort G3870 (PresActInd) therefore G3767, that, first G4412 of all G3956, supplications G1162, prayers G4335, intercessions G1783, [and] giving of thanks G2169, be made G4160 (PresPasInf) for G5228 all G3956 men G444;
[2] For G5228 kings G935, and G2532 [for] all G3956 that are G5607 (PresPtc) in G1722 authority G5247; that G2443 we may lead G1236 (PresActSubj) a quiet G2263 and G2532 peaceable G2272 life G979 in G1722 all G3956 godliness G2150 and G2532 honesty G4587.
[3] For G1063 this G5124 [is] good G2570 and G2532 acceptable G587 in the sight G1799 of God G2316 our G2257 Saviour G4990;
[4] Who G3739 will have G2309 (PresActInd) all G3956 men G444 to be saved G4982 (AorPasInf), and G2532 to come G2064 (Aor2ActInf) unto G1519 the knowledge G1922 of the truth G225.
[5] For G1063 [there is] one G1520 God G2316, and G2532 one G1520 mediator G3316 between God G2316 and G2532 men G444, the man G444 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424;
[6] Who G3588 gave G1325 (Aor2ActPtc) himself G1438 a ransom G487 for G5228 all G3956, to be testified G3142 in due G2398 time G2540.
[7] Whereunto G1519 G3739 I G1473 am ordained G5087 (AorPasInd) a preacher G2783, and G2532 an apostle G652, (I speak G3004 (PresActInd) the truth G225 in G1722 Christ G5547, [and] lie G5574 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756;) a teacher G1320 of the Gentiles G1484 in G1722 faith G4102 and G2532 verity G225.
[8] I will G1014 (PresMidPasDepInd) therefore G3767 that men G435 pray G4336 (PresMidPasDepInf) every G1722 G3956 where G5117, lifting up G1869 (PresActPtc) holy G3741 hands G5495, without G5565 wrath G3709 and G2532 doubting G1261.
[9] In like manner G5615 also G2532, that women G1135 adorn G2885 (PresActInf) themselves G1438 in G1722 modest G2887 apparel G2689, with G3326 shamefacedness G127 and G2532 sobriety G4997; not G3361 with G1722 broided hair G4117, or G2228 gold G5557, or G2228 pearls G3135, or G2228 costly G4185 array G2441;
[10] But G235 (which G3739 becometh G4241 (PresActInd) women G1135 professing G1861 (PresMidPasDepPtc) godliness G2317) with G1223 good G18 works G2041.
[11] Let G3129 the woman G1135 learn G3129 (PresActImpr) in G1722 silence G2271 with G1722 all G3956 subjection G5292.
[12] But G1161 I suffer G2010 (PresActInd) not G3756 a woman G1135 to teach G1321 (PresActInf), nor G3761 to usurp authority G831 (PresActInf) over the man G435, but G235 to be G1511 (PresInf) in G1722 silence G2271.
[13] For G1063 Adam G76 was G4111 first G4413 formed G4111 (AorPasInd), then G1534 Eve G2096.
[14] And G2532 Adam G76 was G538 not G3756 deceived G538 (AorPasInd), but G1161 the woman G1135 being deceived G538 (AorPasPtc) was G1096 (Perf2ActInd) in G1722 the transgression G3847.
[15] Notwithstanding G1161 she shall be saved G4982 (FutPasInd) in G1223 childbearing G5042, if G1437 they continue G3306 (AorActSubj) in G1722 faith G4102 and G2532 charity G26 and G2532 holiness G38 with G3326 sobriety G4997.

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Timothy 2 (YLT)

[1] I exhort, then, first of all, there be made supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, for all men:
[2] for kings, and all who are in authority, that a quiet and peaceable life we may lead in all piety and gravity,
[3] for this is right and acceptable before God our Saviour,
[4] who doth will all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the truth;
[5] for one is God, one also is mediator of God and of men, the man Christ Jesus,
[6] who did give himself a ransom for all-the testimony in its own times-
[7] in regard to which I was set a preacher and apostle-truth I say in Christ, I do not lie-a teacher of nations, in faith and truth.
[8] I wish, therefore, that men pray in every place, lifting up kind hands, apart from anger and reasoning;
[9] in like manner also the women, in becoming apparel, with modesty and sobriety to adorn themselves, not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or garments of great price,
[10] but-which becometh women professing godly piety-through good works.
[11] Let a woman in quietness learn in all subjection,
[12] and a woman I do not suffer to teach, nor to rule a husband, but to be in quietness,
[13] for Adam was first formed, then Eve,
[14] and Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, into transgression came,
[15] and she shall be saved through the child-bearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.
