Jesus is precious

1 Peter 2:7a Unto you therefore which believe he is precious…

The KJB is unambiguous, stating plainly that it is Jesus who is precious to believers.

The following modern translations are made by people who do not believe He is precious.

Instead of honoring Jesus, the following modern translations appeal to the pride of the reader by saying, instead of Jesus, their belief is precious:

ASV For you therefore that believe is the preciousness…

AMPC 1987 To you then who believe (who adhere to, trust in, and rely on Him) is the preciousness; …

AMP 2011 This precious value, then, is for you who believe [in Him as God’s only Son—the Source of salvation]; …

DARBY  To you therefore who believe [is] the preciousness…

Instead of honoring Jesus, the following modern translations appeal to the pride of the reader, saying that honor is due to them for believing:

CSB So honor will come to you who believe…

CEB So God honors you who believe…

EHV Therefore, for you who believe, this is an honor…

ESV So the honor is for you who believe…

GW This honor belongs to those who believe…

HCSB So honor will come to you who believe…

LEB Therefore the honor is for you who believe…

NOG This honor belongs to those who believe…

These new age bibles clearly do not honor the Lord Jesus Christ.  Stick with God’s preserved words in English found in the King James bible.
