060:002:001
Wherefore laying aside all malice,
and all guile,
and hypocrisies,
and envies,
all evil speakings,


060:002:002
As newborn babes,
desire the sincere milk of the word,
that ye may grow thereby:


060:002:003
If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.


060:002:004
To whom coming,
as unto a living stone,
disallowed indeed of men,
but chosen of God,
and precious,


060:002:005
Ye also,
as lively stones,
are built up a spiritual house,
an holy priesthood,
to offer up spiritual sacrifices,
acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.


060:002:006
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.


060:002:007
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,


060:002:008
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.


060:002:009
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 marvellous light;


060:002:010
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.


060:002:011
Dearly beloved,
I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims,
abstain from fleshly lusts,
which war against the soul;


060:002:012
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.


060:002:013
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake:
whether it be to the king,
as supreme;


060:002:014
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.


060:002:015
For so is the will of God,
that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:


060:002:016
As free,
and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness,
but as the servants of God.


060:002:017
Honour all men.
Love the brotherhood.
Fear God.
Honour the king.


060:002:018
Servants,
be subject to your masters with all fear;
not only to the good and gentle,
but also to the froward.


060:002:019
For this is thankworthy,
if a man for conscience toward God endure grief,
suffering wrongfully.


060:002:020
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.


060:002:021
For even hereunto were ye called:
because Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example,
that ye should follow his steps:


060:002:022
Who did no sin,
neither was guile found in his mouth:


060:002:023
Who,
when he was reviled,
reviled not again;
when he suffered,
he threatened not;
but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:


060:002:024
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.


060:002:025
For ye were as sheep going astray;
but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
