1 Peter 2:8-10
8 For them he is also
“a stone that makes people stumble,
a rock that makes people fall.” (A)
People stumble because they don’t obey what God says. This is what God planned to happen to those people.
9 But you are his chosen people, the King’s priests. You are a holy nation, people who belong to God. He chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done. He brought you out of the darkness of sin into his wonderful light.
10 In the past you were not a special people,
but now you are God’s people.
Once you had not received mercy,
but now God has given you his mercy.[a]
- 1 Peter 2:10 In the past … his mercy See Hos. 2:23.
