The First Letter of Peter    5: 1-4

5:1 Therefore, I beg the elders who are among you, as one who is also an elder and a witness of the Passion of Christ, who also shares in that glory which is to be revealed in the future:
5:2 pasture the flock of God that is among you, providing for it, not as a requirement, but willingly, in accord with God, and not for the sake of tainted profit, but freely,
5:3 not so as to dominate by means of the clerical state, but so as to be formed into a flock from the heart.
5:4 And when the Leader of pastors will have appeared, you shall secure an unfading crown of glory.
