1 Peter 2:7

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers

King James Version

Unto you therefore which believe He is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
New King James Version

Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.”
New American Standard Bible

This precious value, then, is for you who believe. But for those who disbelieve, “The stone which the builders rejected, this became the very cornerstone,”
New International Version

Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone (or, cornerstone),”
The Amplified Bible

To you then who believe (who adhere to, trust in, and rely on Him) is the preciousness; but for those who disbelieve [it is true], The [very] Stone which the builders rejected has become the main Cornerstone.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

For you therefore who are believers is the honor and the preciousness [of the Living Stone], but to those who are disbelievers, the Stone which the builders repudiated after they had tested Him for the purpose of approving Him, finding Him to be that which did not meet their specifications, this Stone became a Head Cornerstone,
Phillips’ Modern English

It is to you who believe in Him that He is “precious,” but to those who disobey God, it is true that: The stone which the builders rejected, the same was made the head of the corner.
Williams’ Language of the People

So to you who put your trust in Him the honor belongs, but to those who fail to trust Him: “The stone which then the builders threw away has now become the cornerstone,”
