Peter Chapter 5
1 The elders which are among you I exhortwho am also an elderand a witness of the sufferings of Christand also a partakerof the glory that shall be revealed
2 Feed the flock of God which is among youtaking the oversightthereofnot by constraintbut willinglynot for filthylucrebut of a ready mind
3 Neither as being lords over God s heritagebut beingensamples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appearye shall receive acrown of glory that fadeth not away.
5 Likewiseye youngersubmit yourselves unto the elder. Yea all of you be subject one to anotherand be clothed withhumilityfor God resisteth the proudand giveth grace to thehumble.
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of Godthathe may exalt you in due time
7 Casting all your care upon himfor he careth for you.
8 Be soberbe vigilantbecause your adversary the devilas aroaring lionwalketh aboutseeking whom he may devour
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faithknowing that the sameafflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in theworld.
10 But the God of all gracewho hath called us unto his eternalglory by Christ Jesusafter that ye have suffered a whilemake you perfectstablishstrengthensettle you.
11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
