Revised Standard Version w/ Apocrypha (RSVA) New International Version (NIV)
1 So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ as well as a partaker in the glory that is to 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 that is your charge, not by constraint but willingly, not for shameful gain but eagerly, 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 not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock. 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd is manifested you will obtain the unfading crown of glory. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
