Modern Literal Version

[1 Peter 5]

     5:1 I am encouraging the elders who are among you*, asI, who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of the Christ, and a partner of the glory which is about to be revealed. 5:2Shepherd 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 inheritances{Or: lots}, but you* yourselves become examples to the flock. 5:4 And when* the Chief-Shepherd has been manifested, you* will get the unfading crown of glory. 5:5 Likewise, the younger ones, be subject to the elder ones. 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}5:6Therefore humble yourselves under the powerful hand of God, in order that he may exalt you* in time; 5:7 having tossed forth 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* are standing against, being solid in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are to be completed in the world by your* brotherhood.5:10 But the God of all grace, who called you* to his everlasting glory in Christ Jesus, when* you*have suffered a small time, he himself may frame you*up, will establish, will strengthen and will found you*. 5:11 The glory and the dominion is to him, forever and ever. Amen.

     5:12 Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I count him, I have written to you* a few words, encouraging and testifying this to be the true grace of God in which you* are standing. 5:13 Shewho is in Babylon, chosen together with you*, and my son Mark greets you*. 5:14 Greet one another with a kiss of love*.

     Peace to all of you* who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
