“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,”
King James Version (KJV)
2:7 To them who believe, he is become the head of the corner - The chief corner stone, on which the whole building rests. Unbelievers too will at length find him such to their sorrow, #Matt 21:44|. #Psalm 118:22|.
1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe. The prophecy is now applied. [He is] precious to believers because they enjoy the promise embraced in "he that believeth on him shall not be confounded". (1Pe 2:6). But unto them which be disobedient. Those who do not believe and hence, disobey; to these he is the stone which the builders rejected, which is spoken of in Ps 118:22. See also Mt 21:42 Ac 4:11. The same is made the head of the corner. Peter quotes this passage from the Old Testament and applies it with great force (Ac 4:11). The rejected Savior had become the Head of God's spiritual temple.
