Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

1 Peter 2

He exhorteth them from the breach of charity:

1 Peter 2:1 Putting away, therefore, all vice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envyings and all detractions, 1 Peter 2:2 As new-born babes, for the pure milk that is for the mind, eagerly crave, that, thereby, ye may grow unto salvation:— 1 Peter 2:3 If ye have tasted for yourselves that, gracious, is the Lord,—

shewing that Christ is the foundation whereupon they are built.

1 Peter 2:4 Unto whom coming near, as unto a living stone—by men, indeed, rejected, but, with God, chosen, held in honour, 1 Peter 2:5 Yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, for a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices, well-pleasing unto God through Jesus Christ; 1 Peter 2:6 Inasmuch as it is contained in scripture—Lo! I lay in Zion an outmost corner stone, chosen, held in honour, and, he that resteth faith thereupon, shall not be put to shame. 1 Peter 2:7 Unto you, then, is the honour—[unto you] who believe; but, unto such as disbelieve, The stone which the builders rejected,—The same, hath become head of the corner, 1 Peter 2:8 And a stone to strike against, and a rock to stumble over: Who stumble because, unto the word, they do not yield,—unto which also they have been appointed; 1 Peter 2:9 But, ye, are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for a peculiar treasure, that, the excellences, ye may tell forth, of him who, out of darkness, hath called you into his marvelous light:— 1 Peter 2:10 Who, at one time, were a No-people, but, now, are a people of God,—who had not been enjoying mercy, but, now, have received mercy.

He beseecheth them also to abstain from fleshly lusts,

1 Peter 2:11 Beloved! I exhort you, as sojourners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly covetings, such as take the field against the soul; 1 Peter 2:12 Having, your behaviour among the nations, honourable,—in order that, wherein they speak against you as evil-doers, they may, owing to the honourable works they are permitted to behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

to be obedient to magistrates,

1 Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves unto every human creation, for the Lord's sake,—whether unto a king, as one that protecteth, 1 Peter 2:14 Or unto governors, as, through him, sent—for vengeance on evil-doers, but praise to such as do good; 1 Peter 2:15 Because, so, is the will of God,—by doing good, to be putting to silence, the ignorance of heedless men: 1 Peter 2:16 As free, yet, not as a cloak of vice, holding your freedom, but, as God's servants. 1 Peter 2:17 Unto all men, give honour, unto the brotherhood, shew love, unto God, give reverence, the king, hold in honour.

and teacheth servants how to obey their masters,

1 Peter 2:18 Ye domestics, submitting yourselves, in all reverence, unto your masters,—not only unto the good and considerate, but also unto the perverse; 1 Peter 2:19 For, this, is thankworthy,—If, for the sake of conscience towards God, one beareth griefs, suffering wrongfully,—

patiently suffering for well doing, after the example of Christ.

1 Peter 2:20 For what sort of honour is it—if, committing sin, and being buffeted, ye endure it? But, if, doing good, and suffering, ye endure it, this, is thankworthy with God. 1 Peter 2:21 For, hereunto, have ye been called; because, Christ also, suffered in your behalf, unto you, leaving behind a pattern, that ye might follow in his steps: 1 Peter 2:22 Who did not, a sin, commit, neither was deceit found in his mouth,— 1 Peter 2:23 Who, being reviled, was not reviling again, suffering, he was not threatening, but was making surrender unto him that judgeth righteously,— 1 Peter 2:24 Who, our sins, himself, bare up, in his body, unto the tree, in order that we, from our sins getting away, in righteousness, might live,—by whose stripes, ye have been healed; 1 Peter 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray, but have now turned back unto the shepherd and overseer of your souls.
