As Newborn Babes

1 Therefore, 1putting aside all amalice and all deceit and bhypocrisy and cenvy and all d2slander, 2 3like newborn babies, long for the e4pure fmilk of the word, so that by it you may 5grow gin respect to salvation, 3 if you have 6tasted h7the kindness of the Lord.

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. 11 27Beloved, 28I urge you as 29aliens and strangers to abstain from 30fleshly lusts which wage 31war against the soul.
