1 Peter 5:5

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
New King James Version

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
New American Standard Bible

You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
New International Version

Young ne, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
The Amplified Bible

Likewise you who are younger and of lesser rank, be subject to the elders (the ministers and spiritual guides of the ekklesia) – [giving them due respect and yielding to their counsel]. Clothe (apron) yourselves, all of you, with humility [as a garb of a servant, so that its covering cannot possibly be stripped from you, with freedom from pride and arrogance] toward one another. For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful) – [and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Moreover, all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes Himself to those who set themselves above others, but gives grace to those who are lowly.
Phillips’ Modern English

You younger members must also accept the authority of the elders. Indeed all of you should defer to one another and wear the “overall” of humility in serving each other. God is always against the proud, but He is always ready to give grace to the humble.
Williams’ Language of the People

You younger men, on your part, must be submissive to the elders. And you must all put on the servant’s apron of humility to one another, because God opposes the haughty but bestows His unmerited favor on the humble.

  1. Do Not Yield - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) Many “Christian” leaders demand blind obedience from their followers but what does the New Testament really say about obeying men?

  2. Grace and PrideNeil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) There may have been no greater disservice to the truth about grace than to render “grace” (Greek, charis) as only “God’s unmerited favor.”

  3. Grace and Truth; Twisted Scriptures - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) The devil holds no tenet of the faith as sacred and he will distort any and every doctrine of the gospel if it will gain him any advantage over even one single believer – even the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  4. One Another Commands - Neil Girrard The requirements of the New Testament of what we are and are not to do and be “one to another” are awesome in scope and responsibility.

  5. Servants; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer What contemporary Christianity says about our great power and authority gets shot down by even this incomplete list of verses.
