1 Peter 2:8-10 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)


A stone to stumble over,
and a rock to trip over.[a]

They stumble because they disobey the word; they were destined for this.

But you are a chosen race,[b][c][d] a royal priesthood,[e] a holy nation,[f] a people for his possession,[g] so that you may proclaim the praises[h][i] of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
