1 Peter 2:8-10 Revised Geneva Translation (RGT)
8 and, “a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense,” to those who stumble at the word, being disobedient. To this they were also appointed.
9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people set at liberty; so that you would show forth the virtues of the One Who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light,
10 In the past, you were not a people, yet are now the people of God; who in the past were not under mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
