Elders to Feed Their Flocks; the Young to Obey

Therefore 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. +
Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly; +
neither as lording it over those entrusted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock. +
When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn't fade away. +
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."Proverbs 3:34 +
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; +
casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you. +
Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary, the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. +
Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings. +
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. +
To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. +

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. +
She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son. +
Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen. +
