1 Peter 2 (WEBP)

[1] Putting away therefore all wickedness, all deceit, hypocrisies, envies, and all evil speaking,
[2] as newborn babies, long for the pure spiritual milk, that with it you may grow,
[3] if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
[4] Come to him, a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God, precious.
[5] You also as living stones are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
[6] Because it is contained in Scripture, “Behold,§ I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, chosen and precious. He who believes in him will not be disappointed.”
[7] For you who believe therefore is the honor, but for those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone,”
[8] and, “a stumbling stone and a rock of offense.” For they stumble at the word, being disobedient, to which also they were appointed.
[9] But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that you may proclaim the excellence of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
[10] In the past, you were not a people, but now are God’s people, who had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
[11] Beloved, I beg you as foreigners and pilgrims to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
[12] having good behavior among the nations, so in that of which they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good works and glorify God in the day of visitation.
[13] Therefore subject yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether to the king, as supreme,
[14] or to governors, as sent by him for vengeance on evildoers and for praise to those who do well.
[15] For this is the will of God, that by well-doing you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.
[16] Live as free people, yet not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God.
[17] Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
[18] Servants, be in subjection to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the wicked.
[19] For it is commendable if someone endures pain, suffering unjustly, because of conscience toward God.
[20] For what glory is it if, when you sin, you patiently endure beating? But if when you do well, you patiently endure suffering, this is commendable with God.
[21] For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you° an example, that you should follow his steps,
[22] who didn’t sin, “neither was deceit found in his mouth.”
[23] When he was cursed, he didn’t curse back. When he suffered, he didn’t threaten, but committed himself to him who judges righteously.
[24] He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness. You were healed by his wounds.§
[25] For you were going astray like sheep; but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer° of your souls.

1 Peter 2 (KJVS)

[1] Wherefore G3767 laying aside G659 (Aor2MidPtc) all G3956 malice G2549, and G2532 all G3956 guile G1388, and G2532 hypocrisies G5272, and G2532 envies G5355, and G2532 all G3956 evil speakings G2636,
[2] As G5613 newborn G738 babes G1025, desire G1971 (AorActImpr) the sincere G97 milk G1051 of the word G3050, that G2443 ye may grow G837 (AorPasSubj) thereby G1722 G846:
[3] If so be G1512 ye have tasted G1089 (AorMidDepInd) that G3754 the Lord G2962 [is] gracious G5543.
[4] To G4314 whom G3739 coming G4334 (PresMidPasDepPtc), [as unto] a living G2198 (PresActPtc) stone G3037, disallowed G593 (PerfPasPtc) indeed G3303 of G5259 men G444, but G1161 chosen G1588 of G3844 God G2316, [and] precious G1784,
[5] Ye G846 also G2532, as G5613 lively G2198 (PresActPtc) stones G3037, are built up G3618 (PresPasInd) a spiritual G4152 house G3624, an holy G40 priesthood G2406, to offer up G399 (AorActInf) spiritual G4152 sacrifices G2378, acceptable G2144 to God G2316 by G1223 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
[6] Wherefore G1352 also G2532 it is contained G4023 (PresActInd) in G1722 the scripture G1124, Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), I lay G5087 (PresActInd) in G1722 Sion G4622 a chief corner G204 stone G3037, elect G1588, precious G1784: and G2532 he that believeth G4100 (PresActPtc) on G1909 him G846 shall G2617 not be G3364 confounded G2617 (AorPasSubj).
[7] Unto you G5213 therefore G3767 which G3588 believe G4100 (PresActPtc) [he is] precious G5092: but G1161 unto them which be disobedient G544 (PresActPtc), the stone G3037 which G3739 the builders G3618 (PresActPtc) disallowed G593 (AorActInd), the same G3778 is made G1096 (AorPasDepInd) G1519 the head G2776 of the corner G1137,
[8] And G2532 a stone G3037 of stumbling G4348, and G2532 a rock G4073 of offence G4625, [even to them] which G3739 stumble G4350 (PresActInd) at the word G3056, being disobedient G544 (PresActPtc): whereunto G1519 G3739 also G2532 they were appointed G5087 (AorPasInd).
[9] But G1161 ye G5210 [are] a chosen G1588 generation G1085, a royal G934 priesthood G2406, an holy G40 nation G1484, a peculiar G1519 G4047 people G2992; that G3704 ye should shew forth G1804 (AorActSubj) the praises G703 of him who hath called G2564 (AorActPtc) you G5209 out of G1537 darkness G4655 into G1519 his G846 marvellous G2298 light G5457:
[10] Which G3588 in time past G4218 [were] not G3756 a people G2992, but G1161 [are] now G3568 the people G2992 of God G2316: which G3588 had G1653 not G3756 obtained mercy G1653 (PerfPasPtc), but G1161 now G3568 have obtained mercy G1653 (AorPasPtc).
[11] Dearly beloved G27, I beseech G3870 (PresActInd) [you] as G5613 strangers G3941 and G2532 pilgrims G3927, abstain from G567 (PresMidInf) fleshly G4559 lusts G1939, which G3748 war G4754 (PresMidInd) against G2596 the soul G5590;
[12] Having G2192 (PresActPtc) your G5216 conversation G391 honest G2570 among G1722 the Gentiles G1484: that G2443, whereas G1722 G3739 they speak against G2635 (PresActInd) you G5216 as G5613 evildoers G2555, they may G1392 by G1537 [your] good G2570 works G2041, which they shall behold G2029 (AorActPtc), glorify G1392 (AorActSubj) God G2316 in G1722 the day G2250 of visitation G1984.
[13] G3767 Submit yourselves G5293 (Aor2PasImpr) to every G3956 ordinance G2937 of man G442 for G1223 the Lord’s sake G2962: whether it be G1535 to the king G935, as G5613 supreme G5242 (PresActPtc);
[14] Or G1535 unto governors G2232, as G5613 unto them that are sent G3992 (PresPasPtc) by G1223 him G846 for G1519 G3303 the punishment G1557 of evildoers G2555, and G1161 for the praise G1868 of them that do well G17.
[15] For G3754 so G3779 is G2076 (PresInd) the will G2307 of God G2316, that with well doing G15 (PresActPtc) ye may put to silence G5392 (PresActInf) the ignorance G56 of foolish G878 men G444:
[16] As G5613 free G1658, and G2532 not G3361 using G2192 (PresActPtc) [your] liberty G1657 for G5613 a cloke G1942 of maliciousness G2549, but G235 as G5613 the servants G1401 of God G2316.
[17] Honour G5091 (AorActImpr) all G3956 [men]. Love G25 (PresActImpr) the brotherhood G81. Fear G5399 (PresMidPasDepImpr) God G2316. Honour G5091 (PresActImpr) the king G935.
[18] Servants G3610, [be] subject G5293 (PresPasPtc) to [your] masters G1203 with G1722 all G3956 fear G5401; not G3756 only G3440 to the good G18 and G2532 gentle G1933, but G235 also G2532 to the froward G4646.
[19] For G1063 this G5124 [is] thankworthy G5485, if G1487 a man G5100 for G1223 conscience G4893 toward God G2316 endure G5297 (PresActInd) grief G3077, suffering G3958 (PresActPtc) wrongfully G95.
[20] For G1063 what G4169 glory G2811 [is it], if G1487, when G2532 ye be buffeted G2852 (PresPasPtc) for your faults G264 (PresActPtc), ye shall take it patiently G5278 (FutActInd)? but G235 if G1487, when ye do well G15 (PresActPtc), and G2532 suffer G3958 (PresActPtc) [for it], ye take it patiently G5278 (FutActInd), this G5124 [is] acceptable G5485 with G3844 God G2316.
[21] For G1063 even G1519 hereunto G5124 were ye called G2564 (AorPasInd): because G3754 Christ G5547 also G2532 suffered G3958 (Aor2ActInd) for G5228 us G2257, leaving G5277 (PresActPtc) us G2254 an example G5261, that G2443 ye should follow G1872 (AorActSubj) his G846 steps G2487:
[22] Who G3739 did G4160 (AorActInd) no G3756 sin G266, neither G3761 was guile G1388 found G2147 (AorPasInd) in G1722 his G846 mouth G4750:
[23] Who G3739, when he was reviled G3058 (PresPasPtc), reviled G486 not G3756 again G486 (ImpfActInd); when he suffered G3958 (PresActPtc), he threatened G546 (ImpfActInd) not G3756; but G1161 committed G3860 (ImpfActInd) [himself] to him that judgeth G2919 (PresActPtc) righteously G1346:
[24] Who G3739 his own self G846 bare G399 (AorActInd) our G2257 sins G266 in G1722 his own G846 body G4983 on G1909 the tree G3586, that G2443 we G2198, being dead G581 (Aor2MidDepPtc) to sins G266, should live G2198 (AorActSubj) unto righteousness G1343: by G3739 whose G846 stripes G3468 ye were healed G2390 (AorPasInd).
[25] For G1063 ye were G2258 (ImpfInd) as G5613 sheep G4263 going astray G4105 (PresPasPtc); but G235 are G1994 now G3568 returned G1994 (Aor2PasDepSubj) unto G1909 the Shepherd G4166 and G2532 Bishop G1985 of your G5216 souls G5590.

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Peter 2 (YLT)

[1] Having put aside, then, all evil, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envyings, and all evil speakings,
[2] as new-born babes the word’s pure milk desire ye, that in it ye may grow,
[3] if so be ye did taste that the Lord is gracious,
[4] to whom coming-a living stone-by men, indeed, having been disapproved of, but with God choice, precious,
[5] and ye yourselves, as living stones, are built up, a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
[6] Wherefore, also, it is contained in the Writing: ‘Lo, I lay in Zion a chief corner-stone, choice, precious, and he who is believing on him may not be put to shame;’
[7] to you, then, who are believing is the preciousness; and to the unbelieving, a stone that the builders disapproved of, this one did become for the head of a corner,
[8] and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence-who are stumbling at the word, being unbelieving,-to which also they were set;
[9] and ye are a choice race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people acquired, that the excellences ye may shew forth of Him who out of darkness did call you to His wondrous light;
[10] who were once not a people, and are now the people of God; who had not found kindness, and now have found kindness.
[11] Beloved, I call upon you, as strangers and sojourners, to keep from the fleshly desires, that war against the soul,
[12] having your behaviour among the nations right, that in that which they speak against you as evil-doers, of the good works having beheld, they may glorify God in a day of inspection.
[13] Be subject, then, to every human creation, because of the Lord, whether to a king, as the highest,
[14] whether to governors, as to those sent through him, for punishment, indeed, of evil-doers, and a praise of those doing good;
[15] because, so is the will of God, doing good, to put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men;
[16] as free, and not having the freedom as the cloak of the evil, but as servants of God;
[17] to all give ye honour; the brotherhood love ye; God fear ye; the king honour ye.
[18] The domestics! be subjecting yourselves in all fear to the masters, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the cross;
[19] for this is gracious, if because of conscience toward God any one doth endure sorrows, suffering unrighteously;
[20] for what renown is it, if sinning and being buffeted, ye do endure it? but if, doing good and suffering for it, ye do endure, this is gracious with God,
[21] for to this ye were called, because Christ also did suffer for you, leaving to you an example, that ye may follow his steps,
[22] who did not commit sin, nor was guile found in his mouth,
[23] who being reviled-was not reviling again, suffering-was not threatening, and was committing himself to Him who is judging righteously,
[24] who our sins himself did bear in his body, upon the tree, that to the sins having died, to the righteousness we may live; by whose stripes ye were healed,
[25] for ye were as sheep going astray, but ye turned back now to the shepherd and overseer of your souls.
