4 to whom coming -- a living stone -- by men, indeed, having been disapproved of, but with God choice, precious, 4 As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--

6 Wherefore, also, it is contained in the Writing: `Lo, I lay in Zion a chief corner-stone, choice, precious, and he who is believing on him may not be put to shame;' 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."

But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone, "
8 and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence -- who are stumbling at the word, being unbelieving, -- to which also they were set; 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 and ye [are] a choice race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people acquired, that the excellences ye may shew forth of Him who out of darkness did call you to His wondrous 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 who [were] once not a people, and [are] now the people of God; who had not found kindness, and now have found kindness. 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 Beloved, I call upon [you], as strangers and sojourners, to keep from the fleshly desires, that war 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 having your behaviour among the nations right, that in that which they speak against you as evil-doers, of the good works having beheld, they may glorify God in a day of inspection. 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 subject, then, to every human creation, because of the Lord, whether to a king, as the highest, 13 Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority,
14 whether to governors, as to those sent through him, for punishment, indeed, of evil-doers, and a praise of those doing good; 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.
15 because, so is the will of God, doing good, to put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men; 15 For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.

19 for this [is] gracious, if because of conscience toward God any one doth endure sorrows, suffering unrighteously; 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 renown [is it], if sinning and being buffeted, ye do endure [it]? but if, doing good and suffering [for it], ye do endure, this [is] gracious 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.

Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.
