Isaiah 28:16 (Tanakh)

Isaiah 28:16 (NLT)

Matthew 22:42 (NLT)

Assuredly, Thus said the Lord God: "Behold, I will found in Zion, stone by stone, a tower of precious cornerstones exceedingly firm; He who trusts need not fear.

Therefore, This is what the sovereign God says: Look, I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem. It is firm, a tested and precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never run away again.

"Then Jesus asked them, Didn't you ever read this in the Scriptures?"  "The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous to see"

Psalm 118:21-22 (Tanakh)

Psalm 118:21-22 (NLT)

Mark 12:10 (NLT)

21 I praise You, for you have answered me, and have become my deliverance. 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our sight. This is the Day the Lord has made---let us exult and rejoice on it.

21 I thank you for answering my prayer and saving me!  22 The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous to see. This is the Day the Lord has made.

"Then Jesus asked them, Didn't you ever read this in the Scriptures?" " The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone. This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous to see"

Isaiah 8:12-15 (Tanakh)

Isaiah 8:12-15 (NLT)

Romans 9:31 (NLT)

12 "You must not call conspiracy All that that people calls conspiracy Nor revere what it reveres, Nor hold it in awe. 13 None but the Lord of Host shall you account holy; Give reverence to Him alone, hold Him alone in awe. 14 He shall be for a sanctuary, a stone men strike against, a rock men stumble over. For the two Houses of Israel, and a trap and a snare for those who dwell in Jerusalem. 15 The masses shall trip over these and shall fall and be injured, shall be snared and be caught

12 Do not be afraid that some plan conceived behind closed doors will be the end of you. 13 Do not fear anything except the Lord Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. If you fear him, you need fear nothing else 14 He will keep you safe. But to Israel and Judah he will be a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap that entangles them. 15 many of them will stumble and fall, never to rise again. Many will be captured.

But the Jews, who tried so hard to get right with God by keeping the law, never succeeded. Why not? Because they were trying to get right by keeping the law and being good instead of by depending on Faith. They stumbled over the great rock in their path. God warned them of this in the scriptures when he said, "I am placing a stone in Jerusalem that causes people to stumble, and a rock that makes them fall, But anyone who believes in Him will not be disappointed.

 

 

1st Peter 2:5 (NLT)

 

 

5 And now God is building you, as living stones, into his spiritual temple. What's more you are God's Holy priests, who offer the spiritual sacrifices that please him because of Jesus Christ. As the Scriptures express it, "I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem, a chosen cornerstone, and anyone who believes in him will never be disappointed. 

"Yes, he is very precious to you who believe. But for you who reject him, "The stone that was rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone."  And the Scriptures also say, "He is the stone that makes people stumble, the rock that will make them fall." They stumble because they do not listen to God's word or obey it, and so they meet the fate that has been planned for them.

 

 

Acts 4:11 (NLT)

 

 

For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, "The stone that you builders rejected has become the cornerstone. There is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in all heaven for people to call on to save them."

 

 

Ephesians 2:20 (NLT)

 

 

2:20 We are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.

    1st Peter 2:4 (NLT)
    4 Come to Christ who is the living cornerstone of God's temple. He was rejected by the people, but he is precious to God who chose him.
