1 Peter 5:1-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
5 Therefore I, an even-elder man, and a witness of Christ's passions, which also am a communer of that glory, that shall be showed in time to come; beseech the elder men, that be among you,[a]
2 feed ye the flock of God, that is among you, and purvey ye, not as constrained, but willfully, by God [purveying not constrainingly, but willfully, after God]; not for love of foul winning, but willfully,
3 neither as having lordship in the clergy, but that ye be made ensample to the flock, of will.[b]
4 And when the prince of shepherds shall appear, ye shall receive the crown of glory, that may never fade [that shall never fade].
5 Also, ye young men, be ye subject to elder men, and all show ye together meekness[c]; for the Lord withstandeth proud men, but he giveth grace to meek men.
1 Peter 5:1-5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
A special exhortation for all bishops or priests to feed the flock of Christ, and what their duty is, and what reward they shall have if they be diligent. He exhorts young persons to submit themselves to the elders, and everyone to love one another, to be sober, and to watch so that they may resist the enemy.
5 The elders who are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the afflictions of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed. 2 See that you feed the flock of Christ that is among you, taking the oversight of them not as though you were compelled to it, but willingly; 3 not for wrongful gain, but of a good mind; not as though you were lords over the parishes, but so that you are an example to the flock. 4 And when the chief shepherd appears, you shall receive an incorruptible crown of glory.
5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to the elders. Submit yourselves everyone, one to another. Knit yourselves together in lowliness of mind. For God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.
1 Peter 5:1-5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
5 1 He warneth the Elders not to usurp authority over the Church, 5 willing the younger sort to be willing to be taught, and to be modest, 8 to be sober and watchful to resist the cruel adversary.
3 Not as though ye were Lords over God’s [h]heritage, but that ye may be examples to the flock.
4 [i]And when that chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive an incorruptible crown of glory.
5 [j]Likewise ye younger submit yourselves unto the Elders, and submit yourselves every man, one to another: deck yourselves inwardly in lowliness of mind: [k]for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
1 Peter 5:1-5 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
5 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2 feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
