Makes them stumble.
Makes them fall.
Because they disobey
As they were destined
καὶ λίθος προσκόμματος καὶ πέτρα σκανδάλου· οἳ προσκόπτουσιν τῷ λόγῳ ἀπειθοῦντες, εἰς ὃ καὶ ἐτέθησαν·
This author said, “A stone (καὶ λίθος) makes them stumble (προσκόμματος). A rock (καὶ πέτρα) makes them fall (σκανδάλου). They stumble (οἳ προσκόπτουσιν) because they disobey (ἀπειθοῦντες) the word (τῷ λόγῳ), as they were destined to do (εἰς ὃ καὶ ἐτέθησαν).” This author now cited Isaiah, chapter 8:14, “He will become a rock that one stumbles over. He will become a trap. He will become a snare for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” Both houses of Israel, north and south, found that God was a stumbling block, a trap and a snare. Many of the inhabitants of Jerusalem would stumble and fall. Paul said pretty much the same thing in his letter to the Romans about stumbling blocks. Jesus Christ was both a cornerstone for believers, and yet a stumbling block for non-believers who disobeyed the word of God. Do you disobey the word of God?
