Corner Stone

Job 38:6-7-"Who laid the corner stone…When the morning stars sang together, and the sons of God shouted for joy?"
Is 28:16-20-"I lay in Zion for a foundation stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste…the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place…your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it…From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report. For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it."
Jer 51:20-48-"Thou art my battle ax…with thee will I break in pieces the nations…the husbandman and his yoke of oxen…And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight…Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain…which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee…and will make thee a burnt mountain. And they shall not take of thee a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate for ever…Set ye up a standard in the land, blow the trumpet among the nations, prepare the nations against her…appoint a captain against her; cause the horses to come up as the rough caterpillars. Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes, the captains…and all the rulers…and all the land of his dominion…every purpose of the Lord shall be performed against Babylon…King of Babylon…his city is taken…The daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come…king of Babylon hath devoured me…swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath filled his belly with me delicates, he hath cast me out. The violence done to me and to my flesh be upon Babylon, shall the inhabitant of Zion say; and my blood upon the inhabitants of Chaldea, shall Jerusalem say…I will plead thy cause, and take vengeance for thee; and I will dry up her sea…Babylon shall become heaps…drunken…sleep a perpetual sleep…My people, go ye out of the midst of her…judgment upon…Babylon…her…land…confounded…spoilers…unto her"
Lk 20:17-"The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner"
Eph 2:20-22-"Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the builders fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit."
1 Pet 2:6-10-"Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 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, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, and holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 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."
Ps 118:22-"The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner."-Compare Mt 21:42; Mark 12:10
Acts 4:11-12-"This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other"
