People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 2:6


1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture. See Isa 28:16 Ro 9:33. Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone. Hence God had foretold that Christ should be a Living Stone (1Pe 2:4). Peter has not quoted the passage in full which declares that the stone is "a tried stone", "a sure foundation". Elect. Hence, "chosen by God" (1Pe 2:4). Precious. Since it is "the chief corner stone" without which the structure could not be built. And he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Hence this stone is a person, and faith in him is the basis of salvation.

    "..THE COVETOUS WHOM THE LORD ABHORRETH" This is a part that many might think strange, or inconsistent with the New Testament dispensation of mercy and grace. But such thinking is really inconsistent with the moral excellence and love of the truth in God. Our lives do not consist in those things we would lust after, or possess, or how through them we would hope to be admired and accepted by men.
