 Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, O my soul!
 I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
 Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the LORD his God,
 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps faith forever;
 who executes justice for the oppressed,
who gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets the prisoners free;
 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.
 The LORD watches over the sojourners;
he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
 The LORD will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the LORD! (ESV)
New City Catechism Q. 4. http://newcitycatechism.com/new-city-catechism/#4
1 Peter 5:1-5
 So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed:  shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly;  not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.  And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.  Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (ESV)
