    5:1 I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed.

    5:2 Tend the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly;

    5:3 neither as lording it over the charge allotted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock.

    5:4 When the chief Shepherd will be revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn`t fade away.

    5:5 Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you gird yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."

    5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time;

    5:7 casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.

    5:8 Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

    5:9 Withstand him steadfast in your faith, knowing that your brothers who are in the world are undergoing the same sufferings.

    5:10 But may the God of all grace (who called you to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus), after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

    5:11 To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

    5:12 Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.

    5:13 She who is in Babylon, elect together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son.

    5:14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
