First Peter 5


5:1 The elders who are among you I exhort, who am also an elder,
 and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker
 of the glory that shall be revealed:
5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the
 oversight [of it], not by constraint, but willingly; not for
 filthy lucre, but from a ready mind;
5:3 Neither as being lords over [God's] heritage, but being
 examples to the flock.
5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a
 crown of glory that fadeth not away.
5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves to the elder. Yes,
 all [of you] be subject one to another, and be clothed with
 humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the
 humble.
5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God,
 that he may exalt you in due time:
5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as
 a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
5:9 Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same
 afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the
 world.
5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us to his eternal
 glory by Christ Jesus, after ye have suffered a while, make you
 perfect, establish, strengthen, settle [you].
5:11 To him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
5:12 By Silvanus, a faithful brother to you, as I suppose, I
 have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is
 the true grace of God in which ye stand.
5:13 The [church that is] at Babylon, elected together with
 [you], saluteth you; and [so doth] Mark my son.
5:14 Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace [be]
 with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
