1 Peter 2:2-10

CEB 2 Instead, like a newborn baby, desire the pure milk of the word. Nourished by it, you will grow into salvation, NRS 2 Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation— CEB 3 since you have tasted that the Lord is good. NRS 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. CEB 4 Now you are coming to him as to a living stone. Even though this stone was rejected by humans, from God's perspective it is chosen, valuable. NRS 4 Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God's sight, and CEB 5 You yourselves are being built like living stones into a spiritual temple. You are being made into a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. NRS 5 like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. CEB 6 Thus it is written in scripture, Look! I am laying a cornerstone in Zion, chosen, valuable. The person who believes in him will never be shamed. NRS 6 For it stands in scripture: "See, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame." CEB 7 So God honors you who believe. For those who refuse to believe, though, the stone the builders tossed aside has become the capstone. NRS 7 To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe, "The stone that the builders rejected has become the very head of the corner," CEB 8 This is a stone that makes people stumble and a rock that makes them fall. Because they refuse to believe in the word, they stumble. Indeed, this is the end to which they were appointed. NRS 8 and "A stone that makes them stumble, and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. CEB 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people who are God's own possession. You have become this people so that you may speak of the wonderful acts of the one who called you out of darkness into his amazing light. NRS 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. CEB 10 Once you weren't a people, but now you are God's people. Once you hadn't received mercy, but now you have received mercy. NRS 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
