1Peter 2:1 Wherefore laying aside all malice and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies and all evil speakings.

1Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word.(*), that you may grow thereby.

1Peter 2:3 If so be you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

1Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God and precious.

1Peter 2:5 You also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices.(one is and others are; note it says spiritual sacrifices, not those things based upon a lot of physical religious do's & don'ts as was the case in Old Testament times with the Mosaic Law), acceptable to God by.(or 'through' or by means of, as the original can also mean).Emmanuel the Christ.(*).

1Peter 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious and he that believes on him shall not be confounded.

1Peter 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone.(Psalms 118:22,23; Isaiah 28:16; Matthew 21:42; Acts 4:11), elect, precious and he that believes on him shall not be confounded.(or, as the original has it for word 'confounded', 'ashamed', that is, you won't be sorry later for believing in this stone which is Christ, as probably has happened to you with believing in other things in your life that you may have accepted as being true, such as 'I told others to invest in this great deal I got into, which eventually turned to nothing')

This New Testament quote."not be confounded".is actually from the Old Testament, from Isaiah 28:16, where the original there is."not make haste", as one would if he was in fear, such as fears of losing out on something, so one better act now. It is saying that when you trust the Great Infinite One, fear of anything, if it still exists in you, is to show you that your trust in Him needs to increase and as trust in Him increases so does more guidance come to you for making decisions or not to make decisions.

1Peter 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious, but unto them which be disobedient.(original for 'disobedient' is 'unable to believe', why was this?), the stone.(verse 6).which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

1Peter 2:8 And a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient.(verse 6), whereunto also they were appointed.(wasn't their time yet).

1Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

1Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation.(original 'kind', a specific group of high consciousness people), a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar.(original is 'purchased into God' {by Christ:.1Corinthians 6:20; Ephesians 1:7,14; Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 9:12; Revelation 5:9; Luke 1:68; 24:21; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 9:15; Romans 3:24; 1Corinthians 1:30; 1Peter 1:18,19; Revelation 1:6}).people, that you should show forth the praises.(positive things; avoid negatives).of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

1Peter 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God; which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

1Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul.

1Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved I beseech you as strangers.(Hebrews 11:13).and pilgrims.(not of this world), abstain from fleshly lusts.(these lower based consciousness things are not of the higher consciousness Soul level but of the ego level; they keep a lock on the door to higher consciousness living, the solution of which is, being good).which war against the soul.(that is, they cut you off from it).

1Peter 2:12 Having your conversation.(word 'conversation' is old English for 'conduct').honest among the Gentiles.(who are the' Gentiles' today), that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation

1Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake; whether it be to the king, as supreme;.(Hebrews 13:17)

1Peter 2:14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of them that do well.

1Peter 2:15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.

1Peter 2:16 As free and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

1Peter 2:17 Honour all men.(Philippians 2:3). Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.(*).

1Peter 2:18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

1Peter 2:19 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.

1Peter 2:20 For what glory is it, if, when you be buffeted for your faults, you shall take it patiently? But if, when you do well and suffer.(on word 'suffer' please see verse 21).for it, you take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.(words "acceptable with God" in the original are "grace of God").

1Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were you called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow his steps.

1Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were you called, because Christ also suffered.(original is 'to be affected by', 'to feel', 'to have empathy and passion over what His mind had compassion about' and 'experienced both good and evil' {Hebrews 5:14} and 'to undergo in a good sense and in a bad sense'; in other words he lived life, he experienced life and was affected by it; more on word 'suffer'; His experiences were for an example for us, one example was His compassion for others, another was His lessons for us; people weren't shut out or shoved away as others would do who are motivated at the ego level; He suffered, that is, he experienced for us {Hebrews 2:10} in order to leave an example of living love no matter what {Matthew 5:44,45} and what example did He leave?.1Peter 4:1,2; we are not here for the purpose of suffering:.James 5:10), leaving us an example.(1Timothy 6:13), that you should follow his steps.(not follow in His steps {for, how could one ever do that?}, but follow His steps, His example, His example of spirituality, of love and kindness, not that you should suffer as He did in the flesh; that was 'once for all' and once was sufficient:.Hebrews 10:10)..(?)

1Peter 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. 

1Peter 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered he threatened not, but committed himself to him that judges righteously..(or 'delivered righteous judgement', looked at things in life from a higher consciousness point of view)

1Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live.(original 'now live').unto righteousness.(that is, because of His righteousness); by whose stripes.(*).you were healed.(or as the original also has it 'made whole').

1Peter 2:25 For you were as sheep going astray, but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
