1 Peter 2:4-8 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
4 Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and 5 like living stones, let yourselves be built[a] into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in scripture:
“See, I am laying in Zion a stone,
7 To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe,
“The stone that the builders rejected
“A stone that makes them stumble,
They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.
