(A)You [a]younger men, likewise, (B)be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with (C)humility toward one another, because (D)God is opposed to the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.

Therefore (E)humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time, having cast all your (F)anxiety on Him, because He cares about you. (G)Be of sober spirit, (H)be on the alert. Your adversary, (I)the devil, prowls around like a roaring (J)lion, seeking someone to devour. [b](K)So resist him, (L)firm in your faith, knowing that (M)the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your [c]brothers and sisters who are in the world.
