I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed.

1 Peter 5:2

Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly;

neither as lording it over those entrusted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock.

1 Peter 5:4

When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn't fade away.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time;

1 Peter 5:7

casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.

To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

Through Silvanus, our faithful brother, as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.

She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, greets you; and so does Mark, my son.

Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace be to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
