NASB — 1 Peter 5 — KJV

Serve God Willingly

1 aTherefore, I exhort the elders among you, as [your] bfellow elder and cwitness of the sufferings of Christ, and a dpartaker also of the glory that is to be revealed, 2 shepherd athe flock of God among you, exercising oversight bnot under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to [the will of] God; and cnot for sordid gain, but with eagerness; 3 nor yet as alording it over Ithose allotted to your charge, but IIproving to be bexamples to the flock. 4 And when the Chief aShepherd appears, you will receive the bunfading Iccrown of glory. 5 aYou younger men, likewise, bbe subject to [your] elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with chumility toward one another, for dGOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.

He exhorteth the elders to feed their flocks,

1 ¶ The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight [thereof], not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 Neither as being lords over [God's] heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

the younger to obey,

5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all [of you] be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

and all to be sober, watchful, and constant in the faith:

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

to resist the cruel adversary the devil.

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle [you]. 11 To him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12 By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand. 13 The [church that is] at Babylon, elected together with [you], saluteth you; and [so doth] Marcus my son. 14 Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace [be] with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
