8 [a]Be sober, and watch: for your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist steadfast in the faith, [b]knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your [c]brethren which are in the world.
1 Peter 5:8The cruelty of Satan, who seeketh by all means to devour us, is overcome by watchfulness and faith.
1 Peter 5:9The persecutions which Satan stirreth up are neither new nor proper to any one man, but from old and ancient time common to the whole Church, and therefore we must suffer that patiently wherein we have such and so many fellows of our conflicts and combats.
1 Peter 5:9Amongst your brethren which are dispersed throughout the world.
