1 Peter 5

1Pe 5:1 I, a fellow elder, exhort the elders among you, I being also witness of the sufferings of Christ, and being sharer of the glory about to be revealed:
1Pe 5:2 Shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight, not by compulsion, but willingly; nor eagerly for base gain, but readily;
1Pe 5:3 nor as exercising lordship over the ones allotted to you, but becoming examples of the flock.
1Pe 5:4 And at the appearing of the Chief Shepherd, you will receive the never fading crown of glory.
1Pe 5:5 Likewise, younger ones be subject to older ones; and all being subject to one another. Put on humility, because God sets Himself “against proud ones, but He gives grace to humble ones.” Prov. 3:34
1Pe 5:6 Then be humbled under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in time;
1Pe 5:7 “casting all your anxiety onto Him,” because it matters to Him concerning you. LXX-Psa. 54:23; MT-Psa. 55:22
1Pe 5:8 Be sensible, watch, because your adversary the Devil walks about as a roaring lion seeking someone he may devour;
1Pe 5:9 whom firmly resist in the faith, knowing the same sufferings are being completed in your brotherhood in the world.
1Pe 5:10 Now the God of all grace, the One calling you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, you having suffered a little, Himself will perfect, confirm, strengthen, establish you.
1Pe 5:11 To Him be the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen.
1Pe 5:12 I wrote to you by a few words by way of Silvanus the faithful brother, as I reckon, exhorting and witnessing this to be the true grace of God, in which you stand.
1Pe 5:13 The fellow-elected in Babylon greet you; also Mark my son.
1Pe 5:14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you, all those in Christ Jesus. Amen.

On this day...
