1 G3767 Therefore G659 [G5642] laying aside G3956 all G2549 malice G2532 , and G3956 all G1388 guile G2532 , and G5272 hypocrisies G2532 , and G5355 envies G2532 , and G3956 all G2636 evil speakings,
2 G5613 As G738 newborn G1025 babes G1971 [G5657] , desire G97 the pure G1051 milk G3050 of the word G2443 , that G837 [G5686] ye may grow G1722 by G846 it:
4 G4314 To G3739 whom G4334 [G5740] coming G2198 [G5723] , as to a living G3037 stone G593 [G5772] , rejected G3303 indeed G5259 by G444 men G1161 , but G1588 chosen G3844 by G2316 God G1784 , and precious,
5 G846 Ye G2532 also G5613 , as G2198 [G5723] living G3037 stones G3618 [G5743] , are built up G4152 a spiritual G3624 house G40 , an holy G2406 priesthood G399 [G5658] , to offer up G4152 spiritual G2378 sacrifices G2144 , acceptable G2316 to God G1223 by G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
6 G1352 Therefore G2532 also G4023 [G5719] it is contained G1722 in G1124 the scripture G2400 [G5628] , Behold G5087 [G5719] , I lay G1722 in G4622 Zion G204 a chief corner G3037 stone G1588 , elect G1784 , precious G2532 : and G4100 [G5723] he that believeth G1909 on G846 him G2617 0 shall G3364 not be G2617 [G5686] confounded.
7 G5213 To you G3767 therefore G3588 who G4100 [G5723] believe G5092 he is precious G1161 : but G544 [G5723] to them who are disobedient G3037 , the stone G3739 which G3618 [G5723] the builders G593 [G5656] rejected G3778 , the same G1096 G1519 [G5675] is made G2776 the head G1137 of the corner,
8 G2532 And G3037 a stone G4348 of stumbling G2532 , and G4073 a rock G4625 of offence G3739 , even to them who G4350 [G5719] stumble G3056 at the word G544 [G5723] , being disobedient G1519 : to G3739 this G2532 also G5087 [G5681] they were appointed.
9 G1161 But G5210 ye G1588 are a chosen G1085 generation G934 , a royal G2406 priesthood G40 , an holy G1484 nation G1519 G4047 , a special G2992 people G3704 ; that G1804 [G5661] ye should show forth G703 the praises G2564 [G5660] of him who hath called G5209 you G1537 out of G4655 darkness G1519 into G846 his G2298 marvellous G5457 light:
10 G3588 Who G4218 in time past G3756 were not G2992 a people G1161 , but G3568 are now G2992 the people G2316 of God G3588 : who G1653 0 had G3756 not G1653 [G5772] obtained mercy G1161 , but G3568 now G1653 [G5685] have obtained mercy.
11 G27 Dearly beloved G3870 [G5719] , I beseech G5613 you as G3941 sojourners G2532 and G3927 pilgrims G567 [G5733] , abstain from G4559 fleshly G1939 lusts G3748 , which G4754 [G5731] war G2596 against G5590 the soul;
12 G2192 [G5723] Having G5216 your G391 behaviour G2570 honest G1722 among G1484 the Gentiles G2443 : that G1722 G3739 , though G2635 [G5719] they speak against G5216 you G5613 as G2555 evildoers G1392 0 , they may G1537 by G2570 your good G2041 works G2029 [G5660] , which they shall behold G1392 [G5661] , glorify G2316 God G1722 in G2250 the day G1984 of visitation.
13 G3767 G5293 [G5649] Submit yourselves G3956 to every G2937 ordinance G442 of man G1223 for G2962 the Lord's sake G1535 : whether G935 to the king G5613 , as G5242 [G5723] supreme;
14 G1535 Or G2232 to governors G5613 , as G3992 [G5746] to them that are sent G1223 by G846 him G1519 G3303 for G1557 the punishment G2555 of evildoers G1161 , and G1868 for the praise G17 of them that do well.
15 G3754 For G3779 so G2076 [G5748] is G2307 the will G2316 of God G15 [G5723] , that with well doing G5392 [G5721] ye may put to silence G56 the ignorance G878 of foolish G444 men:
16 G5613 As G1658 free G2532 , and G3361 not G2192 [G5723] using G1657 your liberty G5613 for G1942 a cloke G2549 of maliciousness G235 , but G5613 as G1401 the servants G2316 of God.
17 G5091 [G5657] Honour G3956 all G25 [G5720] men. Love G81 the brotherhood G5399 [G5737] . Fear G2316 God G5091 [G5720] . Honour G935 the king.
18 G3610 Servants G5293 [G5746] , be subject G1203 to your masters G1722 with G3956 all G5401 fear G3756 ; not G3440 only G18 to the good G2532 and G1933 gentle G235 , but G2532 also G4646 to the perverse.
19 G1063 For G5124 this G5485 is thankworthy G1487 , if G5100 a man G1223 for G4893 conscience G2316 toward God G5297 [G5719] endureth G3077 grief G3958 [G5723] , suffering G95 wrongfully.
20 G1063 For G4169 what G2811 glory G1487 is it, if G2532 , when G2852 [G5746] ye are buffeted G264 [G5723] for your faults G5278 [G5692] , ye bear it patiently G235 ? but G1487 if G15 [G5723] , when ye do well G2532 , and G3958 [G5723] suffer G5278 [G5692] for it, ye bear it patiently G5124 , this G5485 is acceptable G3844 with G2316 God.
21 G1063 For G1519 even G5124 to this G2564 [G5681] were ye called G3754 : because G5547 Christ G2532 also G3958 [G5627] suffered G5228 for G2257 us G5277 [G5723] , leaving G2254 us G5261 an example G2443 , that G1872 [G5661] ye should follow G846 his G2487 steps:
22 G3739 Who G4160 [G5656] committed G3756 no G266 sin G3761 , neither G1388 was guile G2147 [G5681] found G1722 in G846 his G4750 mouth:
23 G3739 Who G3058 [G5746] , when he was reviled G486 0 , reviled G3756 not G486 [G5707] again G3958 [G5723] ; when he suffered G546 [G5707] , he threatened G3756 not G1161 ; but G3860 [G5707] committed G2919 [G5723] himself to him that judgeth G1346 righteously:
24 G3739 Who G846 himself G399 [G5656] bore G2257 our G266 sins G1722 in G846 his own G4983 body G1909 on G3586 the tree G2443 , that G2198 0 we G581 [G5637] , being dead G266 to sins G2198 [G5661] , should live G1343 to righteousness G3739 : by G846 whose G3468 stripes G2390 [G5681] ye were healed.
