1 Peter 2:4-10View Full Chapter
The Living Stone and a Chosen People
4As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—
5you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house
6For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
7Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,”
8and, “A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.”
10Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
