15 See to it that no one 1comes short of the grace of God; that no 2root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be 3defiled;
16 that there be no * 4immoral or 5godless person like Esau, 6who sold his own birthright for a single meal.
17 For you know that even afterwards, 7when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears.
