And when the great Prince of the pastors shall appear, ye shall receive the incorruptible crown of glory.
And every man that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we, an incorruptible one.
Blessed is the man that patiently endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those that love him.
unto the incorruptible inheritance that cannot be defiled and that does not fade away, conserved in the heavens for you,
from now on there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only, but unto all those also that have loved his appearing.
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the eternal testament,
For ye were as sheep that had gone astray, but are now converted unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer; behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days; be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life.
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd; he shall gather the lambs with his arm and carry them in his bosom and shall gently lead those that are with young.
And I will raise up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my slave David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
And David my slave shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd; they shall also walk within my rights and keep my statutes and do them.
And those that understand shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and those that teach righteousness to the multitude as the stars in perpetual eternity.
Awake, O sword, upon the pastor and upon the man that is my fellow, said the LORD of the hosts; smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered; and I will turn my hand upon the little ones.
When the Son of man shall come in his glory and all the holy angels with him, then he shall sit upon the throne of his glory,
For ye are dead and your life is hid with the Christ in God.
and to give you, who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with the angels of his power,
Feed the flock of God which is among you, caring for her, not by force, but willingly; not for shameful lucre, but with willing desire;
Beloved, now we are the sons of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be; but we know that if he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Behold, he comes with the clouds, and every eye shall see him and those also who pierced him; and all kindreds of the earth shall wail over him. Even so, Amen.
Behold, I come quickly; hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy crown.
And I saw a great white throne and him that was seated upon it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and their place was not found.
