World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 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. 1 To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder, a witness of Christ's sufferings and one who also will share in the glory to be revealed:
2 Tend the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly; 2 Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers--not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve;
3 neither as lording it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock. 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
4 When the chief Shepherd will be revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn't fade away. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
5 Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you gird yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." 5 Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time; 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
9 Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10 But may the God of all grace (who called you to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus), after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
11 To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
12 Through 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 in which you stand. 12 With the help of Silas, whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand fast in it.
13 She who is in Babylon, elect together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son. 13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark.
14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
