1 Peter 5
He exhorteth the elders to feed their flocks,
1 Peter 5:1 The elders which are among you, I beseech which am also an elder, and a witnesse of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shalbe reueiled, 1 Peter 5:2 Feede the flocke of God, which dependeth vpo you, caring for it not by constraint, but willingly: not for filthy lucre, but of a ready minde: 1 Peter 5:3 Not as though ye were lords ouer Gods heritage, but that yee may bee ensamples to the flocke. 1 Peter 5:4 And when that chiefe shepheard shal appeare, ye shall receiue an incorruptible crowne of glory.
the younger to obey,
1 Peter 5:5 Likewise ye yonger, submit your selues vnto the elders, & submit your selues euery man, one to another: decke your selues inwardly in lowlinesse of minde: for God resisteth the proude, and giueth grace to the humble. 1 Peter 5:6 Humble your selues therefore vnder the mightie hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your care on him: for he careth for you.
and all to be sober, watchful, and constant in the faith:
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, and watch: for your aduersarie the deuil as a roaring lyon walketh about, seeking whom he may deuoure:
to resist the cruel adversary the devil.
1 Peter 5:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren which are in the world. 1 Peter 5:10 And the God of all grace, which hath called vs vnto his eternall glory by Christ Iesus, after that ye haue suffered a litle, make you perfite, confirme, strengthen and stablish you. 1 Peter 5:11 To him be glory and dominion for euer and euer, Amen. 1 Peter 5:12 By Syluanus a faithfull brother vnto you, as I suppose, haue I written briefly, exhorting and testifying how that this is the true grace of God, wherein ye stand. 1 Peter 5:13 The Church that is at Babylon elected together with you, saluteth you, and Marcus my sonne. 1 Peter 5:14 Greete ye one another with the kisse of loue. Peace be with you all which are in Christ Iesus, Amen.
