American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Putting away therefore all wickedness, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.
2 as newborn babes, long for the spiritual milk which is without guile, that ye may grow thereby unto salvation; 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,
3 if ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious: 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
4 unto whom coming, a living stone, rejected indeed of men, but with God elect, precious, 4 As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--
5 ye also, as living stones, are built up a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through 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 Because it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: And he that believeth on him shall 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."
