1 Peter 5:1-3 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Tending the Flock of God

Now as an elder myself and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as one who shares in the glory to be revealed, I exhort the elders among you to tend the flock of God that is in your charge, exercising the oversight,[a] not under compulsion but willingly, as God would have you do it[b]—not for sordid gain but eagerly. Do not lord it over those in your charge, but be examples to the flock.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Peter 5:2 Other ancient authorities lack exercising the oversight
  2. 1 Peter 5:2 Other ancient authorities lack as God would have you do it
