1 Peter 5:1-7 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 So I exhort the Elders among you--I who am their fellow Elder and have been an eye-witness of the sufferings of the Christ, and am also a sharer in the glory which is soon to be revealed. 2 Be shepherds of God's flock which is among you. Exercise the oversight not reluctantly but eagerly, in accordance with the will of God; not for base gain but with cheerful minds; 3 not lording it over your Churches but proving yourselves patterns for the flock to imitate. 4 And then, when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the never-withering wreath of glory. 5 In the same way you younger men must submit to your elders; and all of you must gird yourselves with humility towards one another, for God sets Himself against the proud, but gives grace to the humble. 6 Humble yourselves therefore beneath the mighty hand of God, so that at the right time He may set you on high. 7 Throw the whole of your anxiety upon Him, because He Himself cares for you.
