The elders which [are] among you I exhort, who [am their] fellow-elder and witness of the sufferings of the Christ, who also [am] partaker a of the glory about to be revealed:
shepherd the flock of God which [is] among you, exercising oversight, not by necessity, but willingly; not for base gain, but readily;
not as lording it over your b possessions, but being models for the flock.
And when the chief shepherd is manifested ye shall receive the unfading c crown of glory.
Likewise [ye] younger, be subject to [the] elder, and all of you bind on humility towards one another; for God sets himself against [the] proud, but to [the] humble gives grace. d6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in [the due] time;
