1 Peter 2:6-8

For it stands in Scripture:

(A)“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone,
    a cornerstone chosen and precious,
(B)and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.”

So the honor is for you who (C)believe, but for those who (D)do not believe,

(E)“The stone that the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone,”[a]


(F)“A stone of stumbling,
    and a rock of offense.”

They stumble because they disobey the word, (G)as they were destined to do.
