1 Peter 2:4-10 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

As you come to him, the living stone, rejected by people but chosen by God and precious to him, you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be cohanim set apart for God to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to him through Yeshua the Messiah. This is why the Tanakh says,

“Look! I am laying in Tziyon a stone,
a chosen and precious cornerstone;
and whoever rests his trust on it
will certainly not be humiliated.”[a]

Now to you who keep trusting, he is precious. But to those who are not trusting,

“The very stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone”;[b]

also he is

a stone that will make people stumble,
a rock over which they will trip.[c]

They are stumbling at the Word, disobeying it — as had been planned. But you are a chosen people,[d] the King’s cohanim,[e] a holy nation,[f] a people for God to possess![g] Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; before, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.[h]
