1 Peter 5

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

5:1 I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed.

5:2 Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly;

5:3 neither as lording it over those entrusted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock.

5:4 When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn't fade away.

5:5 Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you gird yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."{Proverbs 3:34}

5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time;

5:7 casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.

5:8 Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

5:9 Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings.

5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

5:11 To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

5:12 Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.

5:13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son.

5:14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
