14 (A)Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, (B)without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone (C)fall short of the grace of God; lest any (D)root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16 lest there be any (E)fornicator or [a]profane person like Esau, (F)who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. 17 For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was (G)rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.

  1. Hebrews 12:16 godless

14 ειρηνην διωκετε μετα παντων και τον αγιασμον ου χωρις ουδεις οψεται τον κυριον

15 επισκοπουντες μη τις υστερων απο της χαριτος του θεου μη τις ριζα πικριας ανω φυουσα ενοχλη και δια ταυτης μιανθωσιν πολλοι

16 μη τις πορνος η βεβηλος ως ησαυ ος αντι βρωσεως μιας απεδοτο τα πρωτοτοκια αυτου

17 ιστε γαρ οτι και μετεπειτα θελων κληρονομησαι την ευλογιαν απεδοκιμασθη μετανοιας γαρ τοπον ουχ ευρεν καιπερ μετα δακρυων εκζητησας αυτην

14 peace pursue with all, and the separation, apart from which no one shall see the Lord,

15 looking diligently over lest any one be failing of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springing up may give trouble, and through this many may be defiled;

16 lest any one be a fornicator, or a profane person, as Esau, who in exchange for one morsel of food did sell his birthright,

17 for ye know that also afterwards, wishing to inherit the blessing, he was disapproved of, for a place of reformation he found not, though with tears having sought it.

14 (A)Pursue peace with all men, and the (B)sanctification without which no one will (C)see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one (D)comes short of the grace of God; that no (E)root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be (F)defiled; 16 that there be no (G)immoral or (H)godless person like Esau, (I)who sold his own birthright for a single meal. 17 For you know that even afterwards, (J)when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears.
