Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:1 - Having put aside, then, all evil, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envyings, and all evil speakings,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:2 - as new-born babes the word's pure milk desire ye, that in it ye may grow,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:3 - if so be ye did taste that the Lord is gracious,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:4 - to whom coming -- a living stone -- by men, indeed, having been disapproved of, but with God choice, precious,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:5 - and ye yourselves, as living stones, are built up, a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:6 - Wherefore, also, it is contained in the Writing: 'Lo, I lay in Zion a chief corner-stone, choice, precious, and he who is believing on him may not be put to shame;'
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:7 - to you, then, who are believing is the preciousness; and to the unbelieving, a stone that the builders disapproved of, this one did become for the head of a corner,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:8 - and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence -- who are stumbling at the word, being unbelieving, -- to which also they were set;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:9 - and ye are a choice race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people acquired, that the excellences ye may shew forth of Him who out of darkness did call you to His wondrous light;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:10 - who were once not a people, and are now the people of God; who had not found kindness, and now have found kindness.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:11 - Beloved, I call upon you, as strangers and sojourners, to keep from the fleshly desires, that war against the soul,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:12 - having your behaviour among the nations right, that in that which they speak against you as evil-doers, of the good works having beheld, they may glorify God in a day of inspection.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:13 - Be subject, then, to every human creation, because of the Lord, whether to a king, as the highest,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:14 - whether to governors, as to those sent through him, for punishment, indeed, of evil-doers, and a praise of those doing good;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:15 - because, so is the will of God, doing good, to put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:16 - as free, and not having the freedom as the cloak of the evil, but as servants of God;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:17 - to all give ye honour; the brotherhood love ye; God fear ye; the king honour ye.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:18 - The domestics! be subjecting yourselves in all fear to the masters, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the cross;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:19 - for this is gracious, if because of conscience toward God any one doth endure sorrows, suffering unrighteously;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:20 - for what renown is it, if sinning and being buffeted, ye do endure it? but if, doing good and suffering for it, ye do endure, this is gracious with God,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:21 - for to this ye were called, because Christ also did suffer for you, leaving to you an example, that ye may follow his steps,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:22 - who did not commit sin, nor was guile found in his mouth,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:23 - who being reviled -- was not reviling again, suffering -- was not threatening, and was committing himself to Him who is judging righteously,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:24 - who our sins himself did bear in his body, upon the tree, that to the sins having died, to the righteousness we may live; by whose stripes ye were healed,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 2:25 - for ye were as sheep going astray, but ye turned back now to the shepherd and overseer of your souls.
