Chapter 5

1

 

  The elders which [are] among you I exhort, who [am their] fellow-elder and witness of the sufferings of the Christ, who also [am] partaker of the glory about to be revealed:  

 

 


2

 

  shepherd the flock of God which [is] among you, exercising oversight, not by necessity, but willingly; not for base gain, but readily;  

 

 


3

 

  not as lording it over your possessions, but being models for the flock.  

 

 


4

 

  And when the chief shepherd is manifested ye shall receive the unfading crown of glory.  

 

 


5

 

  Likewise [ye] younger, be subject to [the] elder, and all of you bind on humility towards one another; for God sets himself against [the] proud, but to [the] humble gives grace.  

 

 


6

 

  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in [the due] time;  

 

 


7

 

  having cast all your care upon him, for he cares about you.  

 

 


8

 

  Be vigilant, watch. Your adversary [the] devil as a roaring lion walks about seeking whom he may devour.  

 

 


9

 

  Whom resist, stedfast in faith, knowing that the selfsame sufferings are accomplished in your brotherhood which [is] in [the] world.  

 

 


10

 

  But the God of all grace who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, when ye have suffered for a little while, himself shall make perfect, stablish, strengthen, ground:  

 

 


11

 

  to him [be] the glory and the might for the ages of the ages. Amen.  

 

 


12

 

  By Silvanus, the faithful brother, as I suppose, I have written to you briefly; exhorting and testifying that this is [the] true grace of God in which ye stand.  

 

 


13

 

  She that is elected with [you] in Babylon salutes you, and Marcus my son.  

 

 


14

 

  Salute one another with a kiss of love. Peace be with you all who [are] in Christ.
