Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore, I urge the congregation leaders among you, as a fellow-leader and witness to the Messiah's sufferings, as well as a sharer in the glory 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 shepherd the flock of God that is in your care, exercising oversight not out of constraint, but willingly, as God wants; and not out of a desire for dishonest gain, but with enthusiasm; 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 also not as machers domineering over those in your care, but as people who become examples to the flock. 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
4 Then, when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive glory as your unfading crown. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
5 Likewise, you who are less experienced, submit to leaders. Further, all of you should clothe yourselves in humility toward one another, because God opposes the arrogant, but to the humble he gives 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 Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the right time he may lift you up. 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
