Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 The ancients therefore that are among you, I beseech who am myself also an ancient and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as also a partaker of that glory which is to be revealed in time to come: 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 care of it, not by constraint but willingly, according to God: not for filthy lucre’s sake but voluntarily: 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 clergy but being made a pattern of the flock from the heart. 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
4 And when the prince of pastors shall appear, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
5 In like manner, ye young men, be subject to the ancients. And do you all insinuate humility one to another: for God resisteth the proud, but to the humble he giveth grace. 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 Be you humbled therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in the time of visitation: 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Casting all your care upon him, for he hath care of you. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth 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 resist ye, strong in faith: knowing that the same affliction befalls, 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 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will himself perfect you and confirm you and establish 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 glory and empire, for ever and ever. Amen. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
12 By Sylvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I think, I have written briefly: beseeching and testifying that this is the true grace of God, wherein 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 The church that is in Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you. And so doth my son, Mark. 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 holy kiss. Grace be to all you who are in Christ Jesus. Amen. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
