1 G659 Having put aside G3767 then G3956 all G2549 evil, G2532 and G3956 all G1388 treachery, G2532 and G5272 hypocrisies, G2532 and G5355 envies, G2532 and G3956 all G2636 evil speakings,
2 G5613 as G738 newborn G1025 babes, G3588 [2the G3050 3rational G97 4sincere G1051 5milk G1971 1long after]! G2443 that G1722 by G1473 it G837 you should grow;
4 G4314 To G3739 whom G4334 coming forward G3037 [2stone G2198 1as a living], G5259 [3by G444 4men G3303 1indeed G593 2being rejected], G3844 but by G1161 G2316 God G1588 chosen, G1784 valued;
5 G2532 also G1473 yourselves, G5613 as G3037 [2stones G2198 1living], G3618 are being built up G3624 [2house G4152 1a spiritual], G2406 [2priesthood G39 1a holy], G399 to offer G4152 spiritual G2378 sacrifices, G2144 well-received G3588 G2316 to God G1223 through G* Jesus G5547 Christ.
6 G1360 For G4023 it is contained G1722 in G3588 the G1124 scripture, G2400 Behold, G5087 I place G1722 in G* Zion G3037 [4stone G204 3cornering G1588 1a chosen G1784 2valued]; G2532 and G3588 the one G4100 believing G1909 upon G1473 him, G3766.2 in no way G2617 shall be disgraced.
7 G1473 To you G3767 then G3588 a stone of G5092 value -- G3588 to the ones G4100 believing; G544 but to the ones disobeying, G1161 G3037 a stone G3739 which G593 [3rejected G3588 1the ones G3618 2building], G3778 this one G1096 became G1519 for G2776 the head G1137 of the corner,
8 G2532 and G3037 a stone G4348 of stumbling, G2532 and G4073 a rock G4625 causing offence, G3739 which G4350 they stumble against G3588 the G3056 word, G544 being disobedient; G1519 to G3739 which G2532 also G5087 they were appointed.
9 G1473 But you G1161 G1085 [2race G1588 1 are a chosen], G934 a royal G2406 priesthood, G1484 [2nation G39 1a holy], G2992 a people G1519 for G4047 procurement; G3704 so that G3588 [2the G703 3virtues G1804 1you should publish] G3588 of the one G1537 [2from out of G4655 3darkness G1473 1calling you] G2564 G1519 into G3588 G2298 his wonderful G1473 G5457 light.
10 G3588 The ones G4218 at some time or other G3756 not G2992 a people, G3568 but now G1161 G2992 are a people G2316 of God; G3588 the ones G3756 not G1653 being shown mercy, G3568 but now G1161 G1653 are shown mercy.
11 G27 Beloved, G3870 I appeal to you G5613 as G3941 sojourners G2532 and G3927 immigrants, G566 to be at a distance G3588 from the G4559 fleshy G1939 desires, G3748 which G4754 soldier G2596 against G3588 the G5590 soul;
12 G3588 G391 [2behavior G1473 1having your] G2192 G2570 good G1722 among G3588 the G1484 nations; G2443 that G1722 in G3739 what G2635 they speak ill G1473 of you, G5613 as G2555 ones doing evil, G1537 that from G3588 [2the G2570 3good G2041 4works G2029 1having scrutinized], G1392 they should glorify G3588 G2316 God G1722 in G2250 the day G1984 of visitation.
13 G5293 Submit G3767 then G3956 to every G442 human G2937 institution G1223 for the sake of G3588 the G2962 Lord! G1535 whether G935 to king G5613 as G5242 being superior;
14 G1535 or whether G2232 to governors G5613 as G1223 [2by G1473 3him G3992 1being sent] G1519 for G1557 punishment G3303 indeed on G2555 ones doing evil, G1868 and high praise G1161 G17 on ones beneficial.
15 G3754 For G3779 so G1510.2.3 is G3588 the G2307 will G3588 G2316 of God, G15 by doing good G5392 to halt G3588 the G3588 G878 [2of foolish G444 3men G56 1ignorance];
16 G5613 as G1658 free, G2532 and G3361 not G5613 [3as G1942 4a covering G2192 1having G3588 G2549 5of evil G3588 G1657 2freedom], G235 but G5613 as G1401 bondmen G2316 of God.
17 G3956 Honor all! G5091 G3588 [2the G81 3brotherhood G25 1Love]! G3588 G2316 Fear God! G5399 G3588 [2the G935 3king G5091 1Honor]!
18 G3588 G3610 Domestic servants -- G5293 being submitted G1722 with G3956 all G5401 fear G3588 to the G1203 masters, G3756 not G3440 only G3588 to the G18 good G2532 and G1933 lenient, G235 but G2532 also G3588 to the G4646 crooked.
19 G3778 For this G1063 G5484 is favor, G1487 if G1223 through G4893 conscience G2316 of God G5297 anyone endures G5100 G3077 distress, G3958 suffering G95 unjustly.
20 G4169 For what G1063 G2811 fame G1487 if G264 sinning G2532 and G2852 [2being buffeted G5278 1you endure]? G235 But G1487 if G15 doing good G2532 and G3958 suffering G5278 you endure, G3778 this G5484 is favorable G3844 with G2316 God.
21 G1519 For this G3778 G1063 G2564 you were called, G3754 for G2532 also G5547 Christ G3958 suffered G5228 for G1473 us, G1473 leaving behind to us G5277 G5261 a pattern, G2443 that G1872 you should follow after G3588 G2487 his tracks; G1473
22 G3739 who G266 [3sin G3756 2not G4160 1did], G3761 nor G2147 was there [2found G1388 1treachery] G1722 in G3588 G4750 his mouth; G1473
23 G3739 who G3058 being reviled G3756 did not G486 return verbal abuse; G3958 when suffering G3756 did not G546 threaten; G3860 but delivered himself up G1161 G3588 to the one G2919 judging G1346 justly;
24 G3739 who G3588 G266 [3our sins G1473 G1473 1himself G399 2bore] G1722 in G3588 G4983 his body G1473 G1909 upon G3588 the G3586 timber, G2443 that G3588 G266 [2to sins G581 1becoming dead], G3588 [2to the G1343 3righteousness G2198 1we should live]; G3739 of which G3588 by G3468 his stripe G1473 G2390 you were healed.
