1Pe 5:1 The elders which are among you I [Peter] exhort, [ I Peter ] who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
1Pe 5:2 [Elders] Feed [be shepherds of ] the flock of God which is among you [under your care], taking the oversight thereof [serving as overseers], not by constraint [not because you must], but willingly; not for filthy lucre [money], but of a ready mind [eager to serve];
1Pe 5:3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples [examples] to the flock.
1Pe 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd [Christ] shall appear, ye [elders] shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
1Pe 5:5 Likewise, ye younger [men], submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth [opposes] the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. [quoting Pro 3:34 ]
1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care [anxiety] upon him; for he [God] careth for you.
1Pe 5:8 Be
sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
[the 4 "names" of Satan are: Satan, devil, serpent, dragon ( see Rev 12:9 )]
1Pe 5:9 Whom resist [the devil, standing] stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the [rest of the] world.
1Pe 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his [God's] eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, [God will] make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
1Pe 5:11 To him [God] be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1Pe 5:12 By [with the help of] Silvanus [Silas], a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written [to you] briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.
1Pe 5:13 The church [ congregation ] that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus [Mark] my son.
1Pe 5:14 Greet
ye one another with a kiss of charity [love]. Peace be with
you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
