The King James Version Bible

1 Peter 5:2-9

  1. 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;

  2. Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

  3. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

  4. 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.

  5. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

  6. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

  7. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

  8. Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
