V. 8 Christ is a stone over which those who don't believe, stumble. The last part of the verse doesn't mean that the unbelievers were chosen, but it does mean that they are going to stumble over the Stone which was appointed.
V.9 If verse 7 is true about us, then we shall be showing His attractiveness by our lives.
V.11 Our old nature has selfish passions, and here we are warned that they make war against our soul; we are not to let them have control of us (Rom. 6:1111Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:11) & 12).
V. 13-21 We are to obey the government's laws. If we suffer patiently for being a believer, we do well and shall be rewarded later For we are only following in the footsteps of the Lord Jesus, V. 21-25 Our eyes are turned to Him as the perfect example.
