|Similarly, young persons, be subject to the elders. And infuse all humility among one another, for God resists the arrogant, but to the humble he gives grace.
|And so, be humbled under the powerful hand of God, so that he may exalt you in the time of visitation.
|Cast all your cares upon him, for he takes care of you.
|Be sober and vigilant. For your adversary, the devil, is like a roaring lion, traveling around and seeking those whom he might devour.
|Resist him by being strong in faith, being aware that the same passions afflict those who are your brothers in the world.
|But the God of all grace, who has called us to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will himself perfect, confirm, and establish us, after a brief time of suffering.
|To him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
|I have written briefly, through Sylvanus, whom I consider to be a faithful brother to you, begging and testifying that this is the true grace of God, in which you have been established.
|The Church which is in Babylon, elect together with you, greets you, as does my son, Mark.
|Greet one another with a holy kiss. Grace be to all of you who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
