Bible: 1 Peter 2:6-10
2:6 For it says 1 in scripture, “Look,I lay in Zion a stone, a chosen and priceless cornerstone, 2 and whoever believes 3 in him 4 will never 5 be put to shame.” 6 2:7 So you who believe see 7 his value, 8 but for those who do not believe, the stone that the builders rejected has become the 9 cornerstone, 10 2:8 and a stumbling-stone 11 and a rock to trip over. 12 They stumble 13 because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. 14 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may proclaim the virtues 15 of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 2:10 You 16 once were not a people, but now you are God’s people. You were shown no mercy, 17 but now you have received mercy.
