The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
God forecast long ago that Jesus would be both rejected by men and at the same time the only foundation on which those same men may be saved.
That stone which the builders cast aside as unworthy has been exalted as more worthy than the building built upon it. The stone which was not even deemed sturdy enough to be included in the building of the wall has become the most firm foundation on which the weight of the world and government was layed. The stone judged crooked and unsteady has become the chief cornerstone by which all other stones find their straightness.
Jesus was rejected by men, but exalted by God. That which men call foolish, God calls wisdom.
Don't be too wise as to seek another way than Jesus. In Him is all wisdom. In Him is a steady and true guide by which to judge all other things. In Him was the fullness of God pleased to dwell. He is the chief cornerstone.
Woe to those who build on any other foundation!
