Modern Literal Version

[1 Peter 5] TOC

     5:1 I am encouraging the elders who are among you*, asI, who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partner of the glory which is about to be revealed. 5:2 Shepherd the flock of God which is among you*, exercising the oversight, not by compulsion, but willfully, and not covetously, but eagerly; 5:3 and not like one lording it over his lot, but you* yourselves become examples to the flock. 5:4 And when the Chief-Shepherd is manifested, you* will get the unfading crown of glory. 5:5 Likewise, you*the younger, be subject to the elder. But all of you* be subject to one another, clothe yourself with humility, because 'God resists the haughty, but is giving grace to the humble.' {Prov. 3:34}5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the powerful hand of God, that* he may exalt you* in time; 5:7 tossing all your* anxiety upon him, because there is care concerning you*with him. 5:8 Be sober! Be watchful! Your* opponent, the Devil, like a roaring lion, is walking around seeking whom he may swallow, 5:9 to whom, you* withstand, being solid in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are accomplished in your* brotherhood which is in the world. 5:10 But the God of all grace, who called you* to his everlasting glory in Christ Jesus, after you* have suffered a little while, he himself may perfect you*, will establish, will strengthen and will found you*. 5:11 To himis the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

     5:12 Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I count him, I have written to you* through a veryfew words, encouraging and testifying that this is the true grace of God into which you* have stood fast. 5:13 She who is in Babylon, chosen 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.
