1 Peter 1:24–25; 1 Peter 2:6; 1 Peter 2:8

24 for

gAll flesh is like grass

and all its glory like the flower of grass.

The grass withers,

and the flower falls,

25  hbut the word of the Lord remains forever.

And this word iis the good news that was preached to you.


For it stands in Scripture:

tBehold, I am laying in Zion a stone,

a cornerstone chosen and precious,

uand whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.


and

xA stone of stumbling,

and a rock of offense.

They stumble because they disobey the word, yas they were destined to do.
