Therefore let them also who suffer according to the will of God in doing good entrust their souls to him, as to a faithful Creator.
Therefore I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ,
and who will also share in the glory that will be revealed:
Shepherd the flock of God which is among you,
exercising the oversight, not under compulsion, but voluntarily, not for dishonest gain, but willingly;
not as lording it over those entrusted to you, but making yourselves examples to the flock.
When the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the crown of glory that doesn’t fade away.
