1 Peter 5
He exhorteth the elders to feed their flocks,
1 Peter 5:1 The elders which are amonge you, I exhorte, which am also an elder, and a wytnes of the affliccyons of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shalbe opened: 1 Peter 5:2 Fede ye Christes flocke, asmoch as lyeth in you, takynge the ouersyght of them, not as compelled therto, but wyllyngly: not for the desyre of fylthy lucre: but of a good mynde, 1 Peter 5:3 not as though ye were lordes ouer the parisshes: but that ye be an ensample to the flocke 1 Peter 5:4 And when the chefe sheperd shall appeare; yee shal receaue, an incorruptibile crowne of glorie.
the younger to obey,
1 Peter 5:5 Lykewyse ye yonger, submyt your selues vnto the elder: Submit youre selues euery man, one to another, knyt youre selues together in lowlynes of mynde. For God resisteth the proude, and geueth grace to the humble 1 Peter 5:6 Submyt youre selues therfore vnder the myghty hande of God, that he maye exalte you, when the tyme is come. 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your care vpon him: for he careth for you.
and all to be sober, watchful, and constant in the faith:
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober and watch, for youre aduersary þe deuyll as a roaring lyon walketh about, sekyng whom he maye deuoure:
to resist the cruel adversary the devil.
1 Peter 5:9 whom resyst stedfast in the fayth, knowing, þt the same affliccyons are apoynted vnto your brethren, that are in the worlde. 1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace whych hath called vs vnto hys eternall glory by Christ Iesus, shall hys awne selfe (after that ye haue suffred a lytell affliccyon) make you perfect: settle, strength and stablisshe you. 1 Peter 5:11 To him be glory and dominyon for euer, and euer. Amen. 1 Peter 5:12 By Syluanus a faythfull brother vnto you (as I suppose) haue I wrytten brefly, exhortynge and testifyinge, how that thys is the true grace of God, wherin ye stande. 1 Peter 5:13 The congregacyon of them whych at Babylon are companyons of youre eleccyon, saluteth you, and so doth Marcus my sonne. 1 Peter 5:14 Grete ye one another wyth the kysse of loue. Peace be wt you all, which are in Christ Iesu. Amen.
