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.
