Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 So putting away all wrongdoing, and all tricks and deceits and envies and evil talk, 1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.
2 Be full of desire for the true milk of the word, as babies at their mothers' breasts, so that you may go on to salvation; 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,
3 If you have had a taste of the grace of the Lord: 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
4 To whom you come, as to a living stone, not honoured by men, but of great and special value to God; 4 As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--
5 You, as living stones, are being made into a house of the spirit, a holy order of priests, making those offerings of the spirit which are pleasing 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 said in the Writings, See, I am placing a keystone in Zion, of great and special value; and the man who has faith in him will 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."
