Humbly And Firmly Lead Younger Believers
1 Guidance I [Peter] am older than you, ๐Ÿ˜‡. I saw our Messiah suffering with my own eyes. [I heard Yahshua groan as soldiers and religionists beat and tortured Him to death]. I share in the glory that [YAH] will reveal [to all the universe]. I call you mature [believers to live like the Good Shepherd]:
2 Guidance [Members of] the flock of [YHVH] the Eloah live among you, ๐Ÿ˜‡. Feed [them]. Take [loving] oversight of them. Not because you have to, but willingly. Not to gain filthy money, but with enthusiasm.
3 Guidance ๐Ÿ˜‡, supervise [other Christians]. But not as a Lord domineering over [Elohim's] inheritance. Lead by living as an example to the โ€œflock.โ€
Be a "servant-leader."
4 Reward [Lead in love.] Then, when [Yahshua] the Chief Shepherd [visibly] appears, [he'll give] you, ๐Ÿ˜‡, a crown of glory that can never fade away.
Humbly Submit To Each Other & YAH Will Lift U
5 Humility Likewise, you younger [believers], submit yourselves to the older [believers]. All of you, be submissive to one another. Clothe your [naked human aggression and selfishness] with humility. For YHVH opposes [all] arrogant [beings], while [he] gives [his unmerited favor] to [all] humble [beings].
(Proverbs 3:34)
6 Humility So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of [YHVH] the Eloah. Then, in due time, He exalts you.
Cast All Your Cares On YAH: He Cares For You
7 Yah's Protection * ๐Ÿ˜‡, cast all your cares upon [YHVH The Eloah]. [He] cares for you.
Pray your worries away.
Be Sober & Awake: Resist The Prowling Devil
8 The Devil *Be sober, ๐Ÿ˜‡! Stay vigilant! Your adversary the devil prowls around [the world] like a roaring lion, seeking a [victim] he can devour.
9 Perseverance ๐Ÿ˜‡, resist the devil. Stand strong in the faith. Remember that your brothers all over the world are passing the same [torturous test of] suffering you're taking.
Resist The Devil Song.
10 Tribulation/Purification/testing YHVH the Eloah, the [source] of all grace, calls us [believers] to [live forever in] His eternal glory [as a part of the political โ€˜Bodyโ€™ of] Yahshua the Messiah. YHVH will establish, strengthen, restore, and perfect you, ๐Ÿ˜‡. But first you have to suffer for a while.
Peter Sends Goodbye Blessings To You
11 Praise [The host of heaven give] YHVH glory and dominion for ever and ever. [Nothing can change] that!
(Amรฉn.)
12 Grace With the help of Silas {Woodsman} (whom I cherish as a faithful brother) I've written you this short letter, to encourage you, ๐Ÿ˜‡, and to give witness about the true gracious-favor of [YHVH] the Eloah. Stand firm in it.
13 The Body of Believers Your fellow chosen Ekklesia at โ€˜Babylonโ€™ salutes you, ๐Ÿ˜‡; and so does Mark, my โ€œsonโ€ [in the faith].
14 The Body of Believers Greet one another with a kiss of charity, ๐Ÿ˜‡. [I pray that YAH's] peace stays firmly with all of you [believers] who [live as members of the political Body of] Yahshua, [YAH's] Messiah.
Kiss of love = nonsexual, non lip-contact. [And that's the way] it is! (Amรฉn.)
