Therefore oun I , a ho fellow elder sympresbyteros and kai a witness martys of the ho sufferings pathēma of ho Christ Christos, and kai a ho partaker koinōnos of doxa the glory doxa that ho is about mellō to be revealed apokalyptō, exhort parakaleō the elders presbyteros among en you hymeis: shepherd poimainō the ho flock poimnion of ho God theos among en you hymeis, watching episkopeō over it— not because you have to anankastōs, but alla voluntarily hekousiōs, as kata God theos would have it; not mēde for shameful gain aischrokerdōs but alla eagerly prothumōs. Do not mēde domineer katakyrieuō over those ho entrusted to your charge klēros, but alla be ginomai examples typos to the ho flock poimnion.

1 Peter 5:1-5 Expanded Bible (EXB)

The Flock of God

·Now [L Therefore] I ·have something to say to [exhort; appeal to] the elders in your group. I also am an elder. I ·have seen [was a witness to] ·Christ’s [or the Messiah’s] sufferings [Matt. 16:13–23; Mark 8:27–33; Luke 9:18–22], and I will share in the glory that will be ·shown [revealed] to us. I ·beg [exhort; urge] you to ·shepherd [tend] God’s flock [John 21:15–19], ·for whom you are responsible [which is under your care]. ·Watch over [Oversee] them because you want to, not because you are forced. That is how God wants it. Do it because you are ·happy [eager] to serve, not because ·you want money [of greed]. Do not ·be like a ruler over people [T lord it over those; dominate those; Matt. 20:25–27; Mark 10:42–45; Luke 22:25–27] ·you are responsible for [under your care; L those allotted (to you)], but be good examples to ·them [L the flock]. Then when the Chief Shepherd [C Christ] ·comes [L appears], you will get a glorious crown that will never ·lose its beauty [fade away; C crowns for athletic success made from flowers wilted quickly; 1 Cor. 9:25].

In the same way, younger people should be willing to ·be under [submit/be subject to] ·older people [or the elders]. And all of you should ·be very humble with each other [L clothe yourselves with humility toward one another]. [L Because:]

“God ·is against [resists; opposes] the proud,
    but he gives grace to the humble [Prov. 3:34].”
