And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
New King James Version

and “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense.” They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.
New American Standard Bible

and, “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense”; for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed.
New International Version

and, “A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” They stumble because they disobey the message – which is also what they were destined for.
The Amplified Bible

And, A Stone that will cause stumbling and a Rock that will give [men] offense; they stumble because they disobey and disbelieve [God’s] Word, as those [who reject Him] were destined (appointed) to do.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

and an obstacle stone against which one cuts, and a rock which trips one, even to those who because they are non-persuasible, stumble up against the Word, to which [action of stumbling] they were indeed appointed.
Phillips’ Modern English

And He is, to them, A stone of stumbling and a rock of offence. Yes, they stumble at the Word of God for in their hearts they are unwilling to obey it – which makes stumbling a foregone conclusion.
Williams’ Language of the People

and, “A stone for them to stumble over and a rock to trip them up.” They keep on stumbling over the message, because they are disobedient to it, and this is their appointed doom.
