1 Peter 51Therefore ▼
▼M TR omit "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. 2Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to God ▼
▼NU Vg. M TR omit "according to God"; not for dishonest gain, but willingly; 3neither as lording it over those entrusted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock. 4When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.
5Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you ▼
▼NU Vg. M TR add "be subjected to one another"clothe yourselves with humility, towards one another; for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." ▼
▼Proverbs 3:346Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; 7casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.
8Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings. 10And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ ▼
▼M TR add "Jesus", after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen and establish you. 11To him be the ▼
▼M TR add "glory and the"power forever ▼
▼M TR add "and ever". Amen.
12Through 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. Stand firm in it! ▼
▼M TR read "in which you stand" instead of "Stand firm in it"13She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son. 14Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ. ▼
▼M TR add "Jesus. Amen"
