Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore I, an even-elder man, and a witness of Christ's passions, which also am a communer of that glory, that shall be showed in time to come; beseech the elder men, that be among you, [+Therefore I, even-elder and a witness of Christ's passions, beseech the elder men that be in you, which also am a communer of that glory that shall be showed 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 ye the flock of God, that is among you, and purvey ye, not as constrained, but willfully, by God [purveying not constrainingly, but willfully, after God]; not for love of foul winning, but willfully, 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 having lordship in the clergy, but that ye be made ensample to the flock, of will. [+neither as having lordship in the clergy, but made form, or example, of the flock, and of intent, either will.] 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.
4 And when the prince of shepherds shall appear, ye shall receive the crown of glory, that may never fade [that shall never fade]. 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
5 Also, ye young men, be ye subject to elder men, and all show ye together meekness [+Also ye younger men, be subject to elder men, forsooth all show ye together meekness]; for the Lord withstandeth proud men, but he giveth grace to meek men. 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 be ye meeked under the mighty hand of God, that he raise you in the time of visitation [that he raise you in the day of visitation], 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
