1 Peter 2:1-3
1 Therefore, laying aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,
3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.
“The sins that Peter names are not the ‘gross vices of paganism’ but ‘community destroying vices’ so often tolerated by the church: malice, deceit, and hypocrisy or insincerity.” (Dr. Daniel Doriani)
