Hebrews 12:12-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)

12 So be made strong even in your weakness by lifting up your tired hands in prayer and worship. And strengthen your weak knees,[a] 13 for as you keep walking forward on God’s paths[b] all your stumbling ways will be divinely healed!

14 In every relationship be swift to choose peace over competition,[c] and run swiftly toward holiness, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.[d] 15 Watch over each other to make sure that no one misses the revelation of God’s grace. And make sure no one lives with a root of bitterness[e] sprouting within them which will only cause trouble and poison the hearts of many.

16 Be careful that no one among you lives in immorality, becoming careless about God’s blessings, like Esau who traded away his rights as the firstborn for a simple meal.
