1 Peter 5:1-4Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Tending the Flock of God

So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ as well as a partaker in the glory that is to be revealed. Tend the flock of God that is your charge,[a] not by constraint but willingly,[b] not for shameful gain but eagerly, not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd is manifested you will obtain the unfading crown of glory.
