Therefore, I urge elders among you, as your
fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and
one who is also a fellow partaker of the glory that is to be revealed:
shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion but voluntarily, according to the will of
God; and not with greed but with eagerness;
nor yet as domineering over those assigned to your care, but by proving to be examples to the flock.
And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
