1 Peter 2:4-8 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
The living Stone and a chosen people
4 As you come to him, the living Stone – rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him – 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house[a] to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says:
‘See, I lay a stone in Zion,
7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
‘The stone the builders rejected
‘A stone that causes people to stumble
They stumble because they disobey the message – which is also what they were destined for.
