1 Peter 2:8-10 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
8 And to them he is also, `a stone on which people will hit their feet, and a rock that will make them fall down.' They hit their feet on it, because they do not obey the word. It was planned that this would happen to them!
9 But you are a chosen people. You are priests to your king. You are a holy nation. You are God's very own people. All this is so that you will tell how good he is. He called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
10 At one time you were not God's people. But now you are God's people. At one time you did not know God's kindness. Now you do.
