New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES 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 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by 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 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen 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 dominion forever and ever. Amen. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
