1 Peter: Chapter 5

(1Pe 5:1 KJV)  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:

 

(1Pe 5:2 KJV)  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;

 

(1Pe 5:3 KJV)  Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

 

(1Pe 5:4 KJV)  And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

 

(1Pe 5:5 KJV)  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.

 

(1Pe 5:6 KJV)  Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

 

(1Pe 5:7 KJV)  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

 

(1Pe 5:8 KJV)  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

 

(1Pe 5:9 KJV)  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

 

(1Pe 5:10 KJV)  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.

 

(1Pe 5:11 KJV)  To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

 

(1Pe 5:12 KJV)  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.

 

(1Pe 5:13 KJV)  The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.

 

(1Pe 5:14 KJV)  Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
