The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;
The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner stone.
The stone rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone.
The stone the masons discarded as flawed is now the capstone!
The stone which the builders put on one side has become the chief stone of the building.
The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.
The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.
