ESV Text: 1 Timothy 2:8-15

1 Timothy 2:8–15 (Listen)

I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10 but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.

8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

     9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (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 Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.(KJV)

Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken

1. Glorious things of thee are spoken, 
Zion, city of our God; 
He whose word cannot be broken 
Formed thee for His own abode. 
On the Rock of Ages founded, 
What can shake thy sure repose? 
With salvation’s walls surrounded 
Thou may’st smile at all thy foes. 

2. See, the streams of living waters 
Springing from eternal love 
Well supply thy sons and daughters 
And all fear of want remove. 
Who can faint while such a river 
Ever flows their thirst t’assuage– 
Grace, which, like the Lord, the Giver, 
Never fails from age to age? 

3. Round each habitation hovering, 
See the cloud and fire appear, 
For a glory and a covering, 
Showing that the Lord is near. 
Thus they march, the pillar leading, 
Light by night and shade by day, 
Daily on the manna feeding 
Which He gives them when they pray. 

4. Savior, since of Zion’s city 
I through grace a member am, 
Let the world deride or pity, 
I will glory in Thy name. 
Fading is the worldling’s pleasure, 
All his boasted pomp and show; 
Solid joys and lasting treasure 
None but Zion’s children know.
