1 Peter 5
1 Peter 5:1
I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed.
1 Peter 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;
1 Peter 5:3
neither as lording it over those entrusted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock.
1 Peter 5:4
When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn’t fade away.
1 Peter 5:5
Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you clothe yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time;
1 Peter 5:7
casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
1 Peter 5:9
Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings.
1 Peter 5:10
But may the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory by Messiah Yeshua, after you have suffered a little while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
1 Peter 5:11
To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 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.
1 Peter 5:13
She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son.
1 Peter 5:14
Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Messiah Yeshua. Amen.
