The one who believes in him will never be ashamed." 7 Therefore he is precious to you who believe, but to those who do not believe, "The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone, 8 a stone they stumble over and a rock they trip on." They keep on stumbling because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.
