WNT 2 Thirst, like newly-born infants, for pure milk for the soul, that by it you may grow up to salvation; NIV 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, WNT 3 if you have had any experience of the goodness of the Lord. NIV 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. WNT 4 Come to Him, the ever-living Stone, rejected indeed by men as worthless, but in God's esteem chosen and held in honour.

NIV 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.
