    Por lo cual tambin contiene la Escritura: He aquí, pongo en Sin la principal Piedra de la esquina, escogida, preciosa: Y el que creyere en ella, no ser confundido.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Peter 2:6

    Verse 6. Behold, I lay in
    Sion] This intimates that the foundation of the Christian Church should be laid at Jerusalem; and there it was laid, for there Christ suffered, and there the preaching of the Gospel commenced.

    A chief corner stone] This is the same as the foundation stone; and it is called here the chief corner stone because it is laid in the foundation, at an angle of the building where its two sides form the ground work of a side and end wall. And this might probably be designed to show that, in Jesus, both Jews and Gentiles were to be united; and this is probably the reason why it was called a stone of stumbling, and rock of offense; for nothing stumbled, nothing offended the Jews so much as the calling of the Gentiles into the Church of God, and admitting them to the same privileges which had been before peculiar to the Jews.

    Elect, precious] Chosen and honourable. See on ver. 4.

    Shall not be confounded.] These words are quoted from Isaiah xxviii. 16; but rather more from the Septuagint than from the Hebrew text. The latter we translate, He that believeth shall not make haste- he who comes to God, through Christ, for salvation, shall never be confounded; he need not haste to flee away, for no enemy shall ever be able to annoy him.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. Wherefore also it is contained in the Scripture , etc.] ( Isaiah 28:16). This is produced as a proof of the excellency of Christ, as compared to a stone; and of his usefulness in the spiritual building; and of his being chosen of God, and precious, though rejected by men; and of the happiness, comfort, and safety of those that believe in him. That this prophecy belongs to the Messiah, is the sense of some of the Jewish writers: the Targum on it applies it to a mighty king; it does not mention the King Messiah, as Galatinus cites it; but Jarchi expressly names him, and interprets it of him: behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious ; Christ is here called a chief corner stone, as in ( Ephesians 2:20) because he not only adorns and strengthens the building, but unites the parts, and keeps them together, even all the saints, Jews or Gentiles, in all ages and places, whether in heaven or earth; and he, as such, is chosen of God for that purpose, and is precious both to God and man, on that account; and is a stone, not of men's laying, but of God's laying in his council, covenant, promises, and prophecies, in the mission of him into this world, and in the Gospel ministry; the place where he is laid is in Sion, the Gospel church, of which he is both the foundation and corner stone: and this account is introduced with a behold, it being something very wonderful, and worthy of attention: to which is added, he that believeth on him shall not be confounded : or ashamed; of the foundation and cornerstone Christ, nor of his faith in him; and he shall not be confounded by men or devils, neither in this world, nor in that to come; he shall have confidence before Christ, and not be ashamed at his coming; he shall be safe now, being laid on this stone; nor shall he be removed from it, or intimidated by any enemy, so as to flee from it; nor shall he make haste, as it is in ( Isaiah 28:16) to lay another foundation; and he shall be found upon this hereafter; so that his person and state will be safe, though many of his works may be burnt up.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - Evil-speaking is a sign of
    malice and guile in the heart; and hinder our profiting by the word of God. A new life needs suitable food Infants desire milk, and make the best endeavours for it which they ar able to do; such must be a Christian's desires after the word of God Our Lord Jesus Christ is very merciful to us miserable sinners; and he has a fulness of grace. But even the best of God's servants, in thi life, have only a taste of the consolations of God. Christ is called Stone, to teach his servants that he is their protection and security the foundation on which they are built. He is precious in the excellence of his nature, the dignity of his office, and the glory of his services. All true believers are a holy priesthood; sacred to God serviceable to others, endowed with heavenly gifts and graces. But the most spiritual sacrifices of the best in prayer and praise are no acceptable, except through Jesus Christ. Christ is the chie Corner-stone, that unites the whole number of believers into on everlasting temple, and bears the weight of the whole fabric. Elected or chosen, for a foundation that is everlasting. Precious beyon compare, by all that can give worth. To be built on Christ means, to believe in him; but in this many deceive themselves, they consider no what it is, nor the necessity of it, to partake of the salvation he ha wrought. Though the frame of the world were falling to pieces, that ma who is built on this foundation may hear it without fear. He shall no be confounded. The believing soul makes haste to Christ, but it neve finds cause to hasten from him. All true Christians are a chose generation; they make one family, a people distinct from the world: of another spirit, principle, and practice; which they could never be, i they were not chosen in Christ to be such, and sanctified by his Spirit. Their first state is a state of gross darkness, but they ar called out of darkness into a state of joy, pleasure, and prosperity that they should show forth the praises of the Lord by their professio of his truth, and their good conduct. How vast their obligations to Hi who has made them his people, and has shown mercy to them! to be without this mercy is a woful state, though a man have all worldl enjoyments. And there is nothing that so kindly works repentance, a right thoughts of the mercy and love of God. Let us not dare to abus and affront the free grace of God, if we mean to be saved by it; but let all who would be found among those who obtain mercy, walk as his people.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    6. It is contained (periecei). From peri,
    round about, and ecw, to hold. Hence, to contain or comprehend. So Luke v. 9, he was astonished (qambov auton periescev); lit., astonishment held him encompassed. Also, Acts xxiii. 25, "He wrote a letter after this manner (periecousan ton tupon touton); lit., containing this form. The verb here is impersonal. The kindred word perioch occurs only in Acts viii. 32, rendered place; i.e., the passage of scripture: either the contents of the passage or the section of the book circumscribed or marked off.

    In the scripture (en grafh). The best texts reject the article. Grafh means a passage of scripture. See on Mark xii. 10. Hence Rev., in scripture; margin, in a scripture.

    Behold I lay, etc. See Rom. ix. 33.

    Precious. See on ver. 4.
