1 Peter 2

ECB(i) 1
So putting away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisies and envies and all slanders, 2 as newborn infants yearn for the undeceitful milk of logic to grow therein: 3 if ever you taste that Yah Veh is kind: Psalm 34:8 4
coming to him, a living stone; disapproved indeed by humanity but with Elohim, select, honorable; 5 and you yourselves, as living stones, are built a spiritual house - a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices, well-received to Elohim through Yah Shua Messiah. 6 So it is also contained in the scripture, Behold, I place in Siyon a chief corner stone, select, honorable: and whoever trusts on him never no way shames. Isaiah 28:16 7 So to you who trust, he is precious: but to them who distrust, the stone the builders disapproved this one became the head of the corner, 8 and a stone of stumbling and a rock of scandal to them who stumble at the word - who distrust: to which also they were set. 9 But you are a select genos, a sovereign priesthood, a holy goyim, a peculiar acquisition to himself; to evangelize the exultation of him who called you from darkness into his marvellous light: 10 who in time past were, Not a People, but are now, People of Elohim: who had been, Not Mercied, and now, Mercied. Hosea 1:6-9 11 Beloved, I beseech you as settlers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly pantings that war against the soul; 12 to have good behavior among the goyim: so that, wherein they slander you as evildoers, by observingyour good works, they glorify Elohim in the day of visitation. 13
SUBJUGATING TO GOVERNMENTS So subjugate yourselves to every creation of humanity for the sake of Adonay: whether to the sovereign as supreme; 14 whether to governors, as to them who indeed are sent through him to avenge evildoers, and for the halal of them doing good. 15 Because thus is the will of Elohim, that by doing good you muzzle the unknowingness of thoughtless humanity: 16 as liberated, and not regarding liberty; as a covering of malice, but as the servants of Elohim. 17 Honor all. Love the brotherhood. Awe Elohim. Honor the sovereign. 18 Housekeepers: subjugate to your despotes in all awe - not only to the good and gentle, but also to the crooks. 19 For this is charism: if for sake of conscience toward Elohim one endures sorrow, suffering unjustly. 20 For what fame is it, if you endure, when you are punched for your sinning? But if you endure, when you do good and suffer, this is charism with Elohim. 21 For even to this, you were called: because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving behind an example to follow his tracks 22 - who neither sinned nor was deceit found in his mouth: 23 who, being abused, replied unabusively; suffering, threatened not; and surrendered himself to him who judges justly: 24 who his own self took our sins in his own body on the staff, that we, being dead to sins, live to justness: by whose bruises you are healed. 25 For you were as wandering sheep - but now you returned to the Shepherd and Episcopate of your souls. Isaiah 52:14-53:12
