1 I urge the elders among you, as a fellow-elder myself and a witness to the sufferings of Christ, and as one who is to have a share in the glory that is to be revealed:
Luke 24:48  Col 3:3-4  1Pet 5:4  Rev 1:9  Rom 8:17-18  Acts 11:30  Ps 73:24-25 

2 give a shepherd's care to the flock of God that is entrusted to you: watch over it, not simply as a duty but gladly, as God wants; not for sordid money, but because you are eager to do it.
1Tim 3:8  Titus 1:7  Acts 20:26-28  Titus 3:1  1Tim 3:3  1Cor 9:7  1Cor 9:16-17 

3 Do not lord it over the group which is in your charge, but be an example for the flock.
2Thess 3:9  Phil 3:17  Titus 2:7  Ezek 34:4  1Tim 4:12  Matt 20:25-26  2Cor 1:24 

4 When the chief shepherd appears, you will be given the unfading crown of glory.
Jas 1:12  1Cor 9:25  2Tim 4:8  Rev 2:10  1John 3:2  1Pet 1:4  1Pet 2:25 

5 In the same way, younger people, be subject to the elders. Humility towards one another must be the garment you all wear constantly, because God opposes the proud but accords his favour to the humble.
Jas 4:6  Eph 5:21  Prov 3:34  Rom 12:10  Col 3:12  Isa 66:2  Phil 2:3 

6 Bow down, then, before the power of God now, so that he may raise you up in due time;
Jas 4:10  Prov 29:23  Luke 14:11  Matt 23:12  Luke 1:52  2Chr 32:26  2Chr 12:12 

7 unload all your burden on to him, since he is concerned about you.
Ps 55:22  Phil 4:6  Ps 37:5  Matt 6:25-26  Ps 56:3-4  Matt 6:33-34  Heb 13:5-6 

8 Keep sober and alert, because your enemy the devil is on the prowl like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
Eph 6:11  Jas 4:7  Job 2:2  1Pet 1:13  1John 3:8-10  Eph 4:27  1Pet 4:7 

9 Stand up to him, strong in faith and in the knowledge that it is the same kind of suffering that the community of your brothers throughout the world is undergoing.
Jas 4:7  Acts 14:22  1Cor 10:13  1Pet 3:14  2Tim 3:12  Eph 6:11-13  1Pet 2:21 

10 You will have to suffer only for a little while: the God of all grace who called you to eternal glory in Christ will restore you, he will confirm, strengthen and support you.
2Cor 4:17  2Thess 3:3  1Pet 1:6-7  1Cor 1:9  Jude 1:24  1Tim 6:12  2Thess 2:17 

11 His power lasts for ever and ever. Amen.
1Pet 4:11  Rom 11:36  Rev 1:6  Rev 5:13 

12 I write these few words to you through Silvanus, who is a trustworthy brother, to encourage you and attest that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it!
Heb 13:22  1Cor 15:1  2Cor 1:19  Acts 11:23  Acts 20:24  1Thess 1:1  2Thess 1:1 

13 Your sister in Babylon, who is with you among the chosen, sends you greetings; so does my son, Mark.
Acts 12:12  Acts 12:25  2John 1:13  Ps 87:4  Rev 17:5  Rev 18:2 

14 Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to you all who are in Christ.
Eph 6:23  Rom 16:16  Rom 1:7  1Cor 1:30  1Cor 16:20  1Pet 1:2  1Thess 5:26
