1 Peter 2:4-10 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

As you come to him, a living stone—rejected by people but chosen and honored by[a] God— you yourselves, as living stones, a spiritual house, are being built to be a holy priesthood[b] to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it stands in Scripture:

See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and honored[c] cornerstone,
and the one who believes in him
will never be put to shame.[d]

So honor will come to you who believe; but for the unbelieving,

The stone that the builders rejected—
this one has become the cornerstone,[e]

and

A stone to stumble over,
and a rock to trip over.[f]

They stumble because they disobey the word; they were destined for this.

But you are a chosen race,[g][h][i] a royal priesthood,[j] a holy nation,[k] a people for his possession,[l] so that you may proclaim the praises[m][n] of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
