(11) He is the stone which you builders had no use for, but which has been made the chief stone of the building.

You put Jesus to death on a cross, but God raised him to life. (11) He is the stone that you builders thought was worthless, and now he is the most important stone of all. [Psalm 118:22] (12) Only Jesus has the power to save! His name is the only one in all the world that can save anyone.

(11) He is the stone which was set at nought of you the builders, which was made the head of the corner. [Psalm 118:22] (12) And in none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, wherein we must be saved.

Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
