The Living Stone and a Holy People

1 So rid yourselves ofa all wickedness, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all slander. 2 Like newborn infants, desire the unadulterated spiritual milk,b so that you may grow by it in [your] salvation,c d 3 since you have tasted that the Lord is good. e 4 Coming to Him, a living stone-rejectedf by men but chosen and valuableg to God- 5 you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual househ for a holy priesthoodi to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to Godj through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in Scripture: Look! I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and valuable cornerstone, and the one who believes in Him will never be put to shame! k l m 7 So the honor is for you who believe; but for the unbelieving, The stone that the builders rejected- this One has become the cornerstone, n o and 8 A stone that causes men to stumble, p and a rock that trips them up. q r s They stumble by disobeying the message; they were destined for this. 9 But you are a chosen race, t u a royal priesthood, v w a holy nation, x a people for His possession, y z so that you may proclaim the praises aa bb of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.cc
