Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Therefore put ye away all malice, and all guile, and feignings, and envies, and all backbitings; [Therefore putting away all malice, and all guile, and simulations, or feignings, and envies, and all detractions;] 1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.
2 as now born young children, reasonable, without guile, covet ye milk [of full teaching], that in it ye wax into health; 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,
3 if nevertheless ye have tasted, that the Lord is sweet. 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
4 And approach ye to him, that is a living stone, and reproved of men [To whom ye going nigh, a quick stone, reproved soothly of men], but chosen of God, and honoured; 4 As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--
5 and yourselves as quick stones be ye above builded [and yourselves as quick stones be above builded] into spiritual houses, and an holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
6 For which thing the scripture saith, Lo! I shall set in Sion the highest corner stone, chosen and precious [For which thing the scripture holdeth, Lo! I shall put in Sion the highest stone, a corner stone, chosen, precious]; and he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded. 6 For 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."
7 Therefore honour to you that believe; but to men that believe not, the stone whom the builders reproved, this is made into the head of the corner; 7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone, "
8 and the stone of hurting, and the stone of stumbling, to them that offend to the word, neither believe it, in which they be set. [+and the stone of hurting, and the stone of offence, to them that offend by word, neither believe, in which and they be put.] 8 and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message--which is also what they were destined for.
9 But ye be a chosen kin, a kingly priesthood, holy folk, a people of purchasing, that ye tell the virtues of him, that called you from darknesses into his wonderful light. 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
10 Which sometime were not a people of God, but now ye be the people of God; which had not mercy, but now ye have mercy. 10 Once 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.
11 Most dear, I beseech you, as comelings and pilgrims, to abstain you from fleshly desires, that fight against the soul; 11 Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.
12 and have ye your conversation good among heathen men [having your conversation, or life, good among heathen men], that in that thing that they backbite of you, as of misdoers, they behold you of good works, and glorify God in the day of visitation. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
13 Be ye subject to each creature of man, for God; either to the king, as to him that is higher in state [as precellent, or more worthy in state], 13 Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority,
14 either to dukes, as to those that be sent of him to the vengeance of misdoers, and to the praising of good men [forsooth to the praising of good deeds, or good men]. 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.
15 For so is the will of God, that ye do well, and make the unknowingness of unprudent men to be dumb. [For so is the will of God, that ye doing well, make the unknowingness of unwise men to be dumb.] 15 For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.
16 As free men, and not as having freedom the covering of malice, but as the servants of God. 16 Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.
17 Honour ye all men, love ye brotherhood, dread ye God, honour ye the king. 17 Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.
18 Servants, be ye subject in all dread to lords, not only to good and to mild [not only to good and mild], but also to tyrants. 18 Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh.
19 For this is grace, if for conscience of God any man suffereth heavinesses, and suffereth unjustly. [Forsooth this is grace, if for conscience of God any man suffereth sorrows, or heavinesses, suffering unjustly.] 19 For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God.
20 For what grace is it, if ye sin, and be buffeted, and suffer? But if ye do well, and suffer patiently, this is grace with God. 20 But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.
21 For to this thing ye be called. For also Christ suffered for us, and left ensample to you [leaving to you example], that ye follow the steps of him. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
22 Which did not sin, neither guile was found in his mouth. 22 "He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth."
23 And when he was cursed, he cursed not [Which, when he was cursed, cursed not]; when he suffered, he menaced not; but he betook himself to him, that deemed him unjustly. 23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
24 And he himself bare our sins in his body on a tree [Which he himself suffered, or bare, our sins in his body on the tree], that we be dead to sins, and live to rightwiseness, by whose wan wound ye be healed. 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
25 For ye were as sheep erring, but ye be now turned to the shepherd, and bishop of your souls. 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
