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

and

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

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

But you are a chosen race,[d][e] a royal priesthood,[f]
a holy nation,[g] a people for His possession,[h]
so that you may proclaim the praises[i][j]
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.
