1 Peter 2
As Newborn Babes1 Therefore a putting aside all ▼
▼ Or wickednessmalice and all deceit and ▼ hypocrisy and ▼ envy and all ▼ , f slander, 2 g like newborn babies, long for the ▼
▼ Or unadulterated, i pure ▼
▼ Or spiritual (Gr logikos) milkmilk of the word, so that by it you may k grow ▼
▼ Or up to salvationin respect to salvation, 3 if you have m tasted ▼
▼ Lit that the Lord is kind, o the kindness of the Lord.
As Living Stones4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been p rejected by men, but is ▼
▼ Lit chosen; or electchoice and precious in the sight of God, 5 r you also, as living stones ▼
▼ Or allow yourselves to be built up; or build yourselves upare being built up as a t spiritual house for a holy u priesthood, to v offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For this is contained in ▼
▼ Or a scriptureScripture: x “Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a y precious corner stone,
And he who believes in ▼
▼ Or itHim will not be ▼
▼ Or put to shamedisappointed.”
7 ab This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, ac “The stone which the builders ad rejected,
This became the very corner stone,”
8 and, ae “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense”;
af for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, ag and to this doom they were also appointed.
9 But you are ah a chosen race, a royal ai priesthood, a aj holy nation, ak a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you al out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 am for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 11 an Beloved ao I urge you as ap aliens and strangers to abstain from aq fleshly lusts which wage ar war against the soul. 12 as Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they at slander you as evildoers, they may ▼
▼ Or as a result ofbecause of your good deeds, as they observe them av glorify God aw in the day of ▼
▼ I.e. Christ’s coming again in judgmentvisitation.
Honor Authority13 ay Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, 14 or to governors as sent ▼
▼ Lit throughby him ba for the punishment of evildoers and the bb praise of those who do right. 15 For ▼
▼ Lit so, bd such is the will of God that by doing right you may be silence the ignorance of foolish men. 16 Act as bf free men, and ▼
▼ Lit not havingdo not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bh bondslaves of God. 17 bi Honor all people bj love the brotherhood bk fear God bl honor the ▼
▼ Or emperorking. 18 bn Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and bo gentle, but also to those who are ▼
▼ Or perverseunreasonable. 19 For this finds ▼
▼ Or gracefavor, if for the sake of br conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if bs when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds ▼
▼ V 19, note 1favor with God.
Christ Is Our Example21 For bu you have been called for this purpose, bv since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you bw an example for you to follow in His steps, 22 who bx committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; 23 ▼
▼ Lit whoand while being bz reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 and He Himself ▼
▼ Or carried...up to the cross, cb bore our sins in His body on the ▼
▼ Lit wood, cd cross, so that we ce might die to ▼
▼ Lit sinssin and live to righteousness; for cg by His ▼
▼ Lit wound; or weltwounds you were ci healed. 25 For you were cj continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the ck Shepherd and ▼
▼ Or Bishop, OverseerGuardian of your souls.
