(A)Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, (B)casting all your anxieties on him, because (C)he cares for you. (D)Be sober-minded; (E)be watchful. Your (F)adversary the devil (G)prowls around (H)like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (I)Resist him, (J)firm in your faith, knowing that (K)the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. 10 And (L)after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, (M)who has called you to his (N)eternal glory in Christ, will himself (O)restore, (P)confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 11 (Q)To him be the dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Final Greetings

(U)Stand firm in it. 13 She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings, and so does (V)Mark, my son. 14 (W)Greet one another with the kiss of love.

(X)Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
