American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The elders among you I exhort, who am a fellow-elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, who am 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 Tend the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not of constraint, but willingly, according to [the will of] God; nor yet 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 lording it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves 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 be manifested, ye shall receive the 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.
5 Likewise, ye younger, be subject unto the elder. Yea, all of you gird yourselves with humility, to serve one another: for God resisteth the proud, but giveth 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 anxiety upon him, because he careth for you. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, 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 whom withstand stedfast in your faith, knowing that the same sufferings are accomplished in your brethren who are in the world. 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 And the God of all grace, who called you unto his eternal glory in Christ, after that ye have suffered a little while, shall himself perfect, establish, strengthen 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 dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
12 By Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I account [him], I have written unto you briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand ye fast therein. 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 that is in Babylon, elect together with [you], saluteth you; and [so doth] Mark my son. 13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark.
14 Salute one another with a kiss of love. Peace be unto you all that are in Christ. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
