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.
5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and 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.
