Bible: Hebrews 12:12-17

12:12 Therefore, strengthen 1  your listless hands and your weak knees, 2  12:13 and make straight paths for your feet, 3  so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but be healed.

Do Not Reject God’s Warning

12:14 Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness, 4  for without it no one will see the Lord. 12:15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God, that no one be like a bitter root springing up 5  and causing trouble, and through him many become defiled. 12:16 And see to it that no one becomes 6  an immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal. 7  12:17 For you know that 8  later when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no opportunity for repentance, although he sought the blessing 9  with tears.
