King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The elders which are among you I exhort , who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall 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 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 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 being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear , ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
