“Wherefore also 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.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:6 He that believeth shall not be confounded - In time or in eternity. #Isaiah 28:16|.
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.
