For in Scripture it says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    a chosen and precious cornerstone,(A)
and the one who trusts in him
    will never be put to shame.”[a](B)

Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,(C)

“The stone the builders rejected(D)
    has become the cornerstone,”[b](E)


“A stone that causes people to stumble
    and a rock that makes them fall.”[c](F)

They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.(G)
