1 Peter 5:5-9,

5  In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of

you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes

the proud but shows favor to the humble.” 6  Humble yourselves, therefore, under

God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  7  Cast all your anxiety on

him because he cares for you. 8  Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil

prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  9  Resist

him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers

throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 10  And the God of

all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a

little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.  11  To

him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 5:6,

6  Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up

in due time.
