8 1Be of sober spirit, 2be on the alert. Your adversary, 3the devil, prowls around like a roaring 4lion, seeking someone to devour.
9 5But resist him, 6firm in your faith, knowing that 7the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
10 After you have suffered 8for a little while, the 9God of all grace, who 10called you to His 11eternal glory in Christ, will Himself 12perfect, 13confirm, strengthen and establish you.
