1 Peter 5
5:1 ¶ Elders, therefore, among you, I exhort[I] who am their co-elder and a witness of the sufferings of the Christ, who also, in the glory about to be revealed, have, a share;
5:2 Shepherd the beloved flock of God, which is among you,not by compulsion, but by choice, nor yet for base gain, but of a ready mind,
5:3 Nor yet as lording it over the allotted portions, but becoming, ensamples, to the beloved flock;
5:4 And, when the Chief Shepherd is manifested, ye shall bear away, the unfading crown of glory.
5:5 ¶ In like manner, ye younger mensubmit yourselves unto elders;All, however, one towards another, gird on humility; because, God, against the haughty, arrayeth himself, whereas, unto the lowly, he giveth favour.
5:6 Be made lowly, therefore, under the strong hand of God, that he may lift, you, up in due time,
5:7 All your anxiety, casting upon him, because he careth for you.
5:8 ¶ Be sober! be watchful! Your slanderous adversary, as a roaring lion, is walking aboutseeking to devour:
5:9 Whom resist, steadfast in your faith, knowing that, the same sufferings, in your brotherhood that is in the world, are being accomplished.
5:10 ¶ Howbeit, the God of all favourwho hath called you unto his age-abiding glory in Christwhen, for a little, ye have suffered, Himself, will adjust, confirm, strengthen:
5:11 Unto him, be the dominion, unto the ages. Amen!
5:12 By Silvanus, the faithful brother, as I account him, have I briefly written, unto you, exhorting and adding testimonythat, this, is the true favour of Godwithin which, stand ye fast!
5:13 She who, in Babylon, is co-elect, and Mark my son, salute you:
5:14 Salute ye one another with a kiss of love. Peace unto you all who are in Christ.
