1 Peter 5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
5 1 He warneth the Elders not to usurp authority over the Church, 5 willing the younger sort to be willing to be taught, and to be modest, 8 to be sober and watchful to resist the cruel adversary.
3 Not as though ye were Lords over God’s [h]heritage, but that ye may be examples to the flock.
4 [i]And when that chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive an incorruptible crown of glory.
5 [j]Likewise ye younger submit yourselves unto the Elders, and submit yourselves every man, one to another: deck yourselves inwardly in lowliness of mind: [k]for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
6 Humble yourselves therefore [l]under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.
7 Cast all your care on him: for he careth for you.
8 [m]Be sober, and watch: for your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
10 [p]And the God of all grace, which hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a little, make you perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
11 To him be glory and dominion forever and ever, Amen.
12 [q]By Silvanus a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, have I written briefly, exhorting and testifying how that this is the true grace of God, wherein ye stand.
14 Greet ye one another with the kiss of love. Peace be with you all which are in Christ Jesus, Amen.
