Hebrews 12:13 RWP
Straight paths (trocia orqa). Track of a wheel (troco, James 3:6 from trecw, to run), here only in N.T. "Straight (orqa) wheel tracks." Be not turned out of the way (ina mh ektraph). Negative final clause with ina mh and second aorist passive of ektrepw, old verb to turn out, to twist, to put out of joint. So 1 Timothy 1:6 . Vivid picture of concern for the lame (cwlon, as in Matthew 11:5 ). Graphic picture of concern for the weak, a good argument for prohibition also.
