1 Peter 2:4; 1 Peter 2:20

4 To whom coming , as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults , ye shall take it patiently ? but if, when ye do well , and suffer for it, ye take it patiently , this is acceptable with God.
