1 Peter 2:4-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
4 Come to him, a living stone,[a] rejected by human beings but chosen and precious in the sight of God, 5 and, like living stones, let yourselves be built[b] into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For it says in scripture:
“Behold, I am laying a stone in Zion,
7 Therefore, its value is for you who have faith, but for those without faith:
“The stone which the builders rejected
“A stone that will make people stumble,
They stumble by disobeying the word, as is their destiny.
9 [c]But you are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises” of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
