About the Elders

1 Therefore, as a fellow elder and witness to the sufferings of the Messiah, and also a participant in the glory about to be revealed, I exhort the elders among you: 2 shepherda God's flock among you, not overseeingb out of compulsion but freely, according to God's [will];c not for the money but eagerly; 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you,d but being examplese to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crownf of glory. 5 Likewise, you younger men, be subject to the elders. And all of you clothe yourselves withg humility toward one another, because God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. h i 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you in due time,j k 7 casting all your care upon Him, because He cares about you.l
