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 G3588 the G3050 rational G97 guileless G1051 milk, G2443 that G837 [G5686] ye may grow G1722 in 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 well-acceptable G2316 to God G1223 by G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed.
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 valueable: G1161 but G544 [G5723] to them who are disobedient, G3037 the stone G3739 which G3618 [G5723] the builders G593 [G5656] rejected, G3778 this one G1096 [G5675] is made G1519 into G2776 the head G1137 of the corner,
8 G2532 And G3037 a stone G4348 of stumbling, G2532 and G4073 a rock G4625 of a trap-stick, G3739 even to them who G4350 [G5719] dash their feet against G3588 the G3056 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, G2992 a people G1519 for G4047 procurement; G3704 that G1804 [G5661] ye should show forth G703 the virtues G2564 [G5660] of him who hath called G5209 you G1537 from 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 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] soldier G2596 against G3588 the G5590 breath;
12 G2192 [G5723] Having G5216 your G391 behaviour G2570 honest G1722 among G1484 the nations: G2443 that, G1722 G3739 though G2635 [G5719] they speak against G5216 you G5613 as G2555 criminals, 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 G5293 [G5649] Submit yourselves G3767 then G3956 to every G2937 institution G442 of man G1223 because of G3588 the G2962 Lord: G1535 whether G935 to the king, G5613 as G5242 [G5723] being superior;
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 criminals, G1161 and G1868 for the high 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 muzzle G56 the ignorance G878 of mindless 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 slaves 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 Household slaves, 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 sadness, G3958 [G5723] suffering G95 unjustly.
20 G1063 For G4169 what G2811 reknown G1487 is it, if, G264 [G5723] sinning G2532 and G2852 [G5746] being buffeted, G5278 [G5692] ye bear it patiently? G235 but G1487 if, G15 [G5723] doing good, G2532 and G3958 [G5723] suffering 0 for it, G5278 [G5692] 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 Anointed 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.
