New Living Translation
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception.
So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body.
We are in this struggle together. You have seen my struggle in the past, and you know that I am still in the midst of it.
