1 Pet. 5:2  POIMANATE TO EN hUMIN POIMNION TOU QEOU [EPISKOPOUNTES] MH
ANAGKASTWS ALLA hEKOUSIWS KATA QEON, MHDE AISCROKERDWS ALLA. PROQUMWS

Shepherd the flock of God, which is in your care. [Overseeing] not under
compulsion, but willingly according to God. Neither for love of dishonest
gain, but eagerly.

POIMNION - acc of direct object
Question - does the TO here belong to POIOMNION or is this one of those
articles before an adverbial phrase?

KATA QEON - acc. of manner hanging off of EPISKOPOUNTES. So, as I understand,
watch over the flock in a way that God approves and has directed.

Thank you,
Mark Johnson
