6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time,
7having cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares about you.
8Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
9So resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brothers and sisters who are in the world.
10After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
11To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.
