1 Peter 5

NLT 1 And now, a word to you who are elders in the churches. I, too, am an elder and a witness to the sufferings of Christ. And I, too, will share in his glory when he is revealed to the whole world. As a fellow elder, I appeal to you: NIV 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: NLT 2 Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. NIV 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; NLT 3 Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example. NIV 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. NLT 4 And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor. NIV 4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. NLT 5 In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” NIV 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." NLT 6 So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. NIV 6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. NLT 7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. NIV 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. NLT 8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. NIV 8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. NLT 9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. NIV 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. NLT 10 In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. NIV 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. NLT 11 All power to him forever! Amen. NIV 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen. NLT 12 I have written and sent this short letter to you with the help of Silas, whom I commend to you as a faithful brother. My purpose in writing is to encourage you and assure you that what you are experiencing is truly part of God’s grace for you. Stand firm in this grace. NIV 12 With the help of Silas, whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand fast in it. NLT 13 Your sister church here in Babylon sends you greetings, and so does my son Mark. NIV 13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark.
