As Living Stones

4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been 8rejected by men, but is ichoice and precious in the sight of God, 5 9you also, as living stones, jare being built up as a 10spiritual house for a holy 11priesthood, to 12offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For this is contained in kScripture: "13BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A 14PRECIOUS CORNER stone, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN lHIM WILL NOT BE mDISAPPOINTED." 7 15This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, "16THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS 17REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE VERY CORNER stone," 8 and, "18A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE "; 19for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, 20and to this doom they were also appointed. 9 But you are 21A CHOSEN RACE, A royal 22PRIESTHOOD, A 23HOLY NATION, 24A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you 25out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 26for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.
