The elders who are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of the Messiah (haMashiach), and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed;
2 Feed the flock of יהוה (YHWH) 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 יהוה (YHWH)’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
5 Likewise, you younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility; for יהוה (YHWH) resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. – Prov. 3:34
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of יהוה (YHWH), that He may exalt you in due time;
7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour;
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But the God (Elohim) of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Messiah (Mashiach) YHWH, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
11 To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. So be it (Amen).
12 By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) wherein you stand.
13 The assembly that is at Babylon (Bavel), elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.
14 Greet you one another with a kiss of love. Peace be with you all that are in Messiah (Mashiach) YHWH. So be it (Amen).
