2:1 Therefore putting away all malice, and all guile, and simulations, and envies, and all detractions; Wherefore lay aside all maliciousness, and all guile, and dissimulation, and envy, and all backbiting: Wherefore, laying aside all maliciousness & all guile, & dissimulation, and envy, and all evil speaking, Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and evil speakings,
2:2 as now born young children, reasonable, without guile, covet ye milk of full teaching, that in it ye wax into health; and as newborn babes, desire that reasonable milk which is without corruption, that ye may grown therein. As newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby, As newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby,
2:3 if nevertheless ye have tasted, that the Lord is sweet. If so be that ye have tasted how pleasant the lord is, If so be that ye have tasted how bountiful the Lord is. If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
2:4 To whom ye going nigh, a quick stone, reproved soothly of men, but chosen of God, and honoured; to whom ye come as unto a living stone which is disallowed of men, but elect of god and precious: To whom ye come as unto a living stone disallowed of men, but chosen of God & precious. To whom coming as unto a living Stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
2:5 and yourselves as quick stones be above builded into spiritual houses, and an holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. and ye as living stones, are made a spiritual house, and an holy priesthood, for to offer up spiritual sacrifice, acceptable to god by Jesus Christ. And ye as lively stones, be made a spiritual house, and holy Priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Ye also as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy Priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifice, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
2:6 For which thing the scripture holdeth, Lo! I shall put in Sion the highest stone, a corner stone, chosen, precious; and he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded. Wherefore it is contained in the scripture: behold, I put in Sion an head corner stone, elect and precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Wherefore it is contained in the Scripture, Behold, I put in Sion a chief corner stone, elect and precious: and he that believeth therein, shall not be ashamed. Wherefore it is contained in the Scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious, and he that believeth on him, shall not be confounded.
2:7 Therefore honour to you that believe; but to men that believe not, the stone whom the builders reproved, this is made into the head of the corner; Unto you therefore which believe is he precious: but unto them which believe not the same stone which the builders refused, is made the head stone in the corner, Unto you therefore which believe, it is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 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,
2:8 and the stone of hurting, and the stone of offence, to them that offend by word, neither believe, in which and they be put. and a stone to stumble at, and a rock to offend them which stumble at the word, and believe not that where on they were set. And a stone to stumble at, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word being disobedient, unto the which thing they were even ordained. 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.
2:9 But ye be a chosen kin, a kingly priesthood, holy folk, a people of purchasing, that ye tell the virtues of him, that called you from darknesses into his wonderful light. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, and a peculiar people, that ye should shew the virtues of him that called you out of darkness into his marvelous light, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal Priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the virtues of him that hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal Priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him, who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:
2:10 Which sometime were not a people of God, but now ye be the people of God; which had not mercy, but now ye have mercy. which in time past were not a people, yet are ye now the people of God, which were not under mercy: but now have obtained mercy. Which in time past were not a people, yet are now the people of God: which in time past were not under mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 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.
2:11 Most dear, I beseech you, as comelings and pilgrims, to abstain you from fleshly desires, that fight against the soul; Dearly beloved I beseech you as strangers, and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which fight against the soul, Dearly beloved, I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which fight against the soul, Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul,
2:12 having your conversation good among heathen men, that in that thing that they backbite of you, as of misdoers, they behold you of good works, and glorify God in the day of visitation. and see that ye have honest conversation among the gentiles, that they which backbite you as evildoers, may see your good works and praise god in the day of visitation. And have your conversation honest among the Gentiles, that they which speak evil of you as of evildoers, may by your good works which they shall see, glorify God in the day of the visitation. Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles, 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.
2:13 Be ye subject to each creature of man, for God; either to the king, as precellent, Submit yourselves unto all manner ordinance of man for the lord’s sake, whether it be unto the king as unto the chief head: Submit yourselves unto all manner ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether it be unto the King, as unto the superior, Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether it be to the King, as supreme,
2:14 either to dukes, as to those that be sent of him to the vengeance of misdoers, forsooth to the praising of good deeds. other unto rulers, as unto them that are sent of him, for the punishment of evildoers: but for the laud of them that well do. Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent of him, for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 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.
2:15 For so is the will of God, that ye doing well, make the unknowingness of unwise men to be dumb. For so is the will of god, that with well doing ye should stop the mouths of ignorant men: For so is the will of God, that by well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men, For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.
2:16 As free men, and not as having freedom the covering of malice, but as the servants of God. as free, and not as though ye took liberty for a cloke of maliciousness: but even as the servants of god. As free, and not as having the liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
2:17 Honour ye all men, love ye brotherhood, dread ye God, honour ye the king. See that ye honour all men. Love brotherly fellowship, fear god, honour the king. Honour all men: love brotherly fellowship: fear God: honour the King. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the King.
2:18 Servants, be ye subject in all dread to lords, not only to good and mild, but also to tyrants. Servants obey your masters with all fear, not only if they be good and courteous: but also though they be froward. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and courteous, but also to the froward. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
2:19 Forsooth this is grace, if for conscience of God any man suffereth sorrows, suffering unjustly. For it cometh of grace, if a man for conscience toward god endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For this is thank worthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief suffering wrongfully. For this is thank-worthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
2:20 For what grace is it, if ye sin, and be buffeted, and suffer? But if ye do well, and suffer patiently, this is grace with God. For what praise is it, if when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye take it patiently? But and if when ye do well, ye suffer wrong and take it patiently, then is there thank with god. For what praise is it, if when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye take it patiently? but and if when ye do well, ye suffer wrong and take it patiently, this is acceptable to God. For what glory is it, if when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently: but if when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
2:21 For to this thing ye be called. For also Christ suffered for us, leaving to you ensample, that ye follow the steps of him. Hereunto verily were ye called, for Christ also suffered for our sakes: leaving us an ensample that ye should follow his steps, For hereunto ye are called: for Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an ensample that ye should follow his steps. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps.
2:22 Which did not sin, neither guile was found in his mouth. which did no sin, neither was there guile found in his mouth: Who did no sin, neither was there guile found in his mouth. Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth.
2:23 Which, when he was cursed, cursed not; when he suffered, he menaced not; but he betook himself to him, that deemed him unjustly. which when he was reviled, reviled not again: when he suffered, he threatened not: but committed the cause to him that judgeth righteously, Who when he was reviled, reviled not again: when he suffered, he threatened not, but committed it to him that judgeth righteously. Who when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not, but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.
2:24 Which he himself suffered our sins in his body on the tree, that we be dead to sins, and live to rightwiseness, by whose wan wound ye be healed. which his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we should be delivered from sin and should live in rightwiseness. By whose stripes ye were healed. Who his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we being delivered from sin, should live in righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness, by whose stripes ye were healed.
2:25 For ye were as sheep erring, but ye be now turned to the shepherd, and bishop of your souls. For ye were as sheep which go astray: but are now returned unto the shepherd, and bishop of your souls. For ye were as sheep going astray: but are now returned unto the shepherd and bishop of your souls. For ye were as sheep going astray, but are now returned unto the shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
