Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. (A)Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for (B)“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

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