We are here to further the kingdom of YHVH.

1 Peter 2:7-10 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

Now to you who keep trusting, he is precious. But to those who are not trusting,

“The very stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone”;

also he is

a stone that will make people stumble,
a rock over which they will trip.[b]

They are stumbling at the Word, disobeying it — as had been planned. But you are a chosen people,[c] the King’s cohanim,[d] a holy nation,[e] a people for God to possess![f] Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; before, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
