Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
5 Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes 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 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you. 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Cast all your anxieties on him, for he cares about you. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. 8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout 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 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, establish, and strengthen 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 the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
