Acts 10:9-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)
9 The next day around noon, as Cornelius’ men were approaching Joppa, Peter went up to the flat roof[a] of the house to pray. 10 He was hungry and wanted to eat, but while lunch was being prepared he fell into a trance and entered into another realm.[b] 11 As the heavenly realm opened up, he saw something resembling a large linen tablecloth that descended from above, being let down to the earth by its four corners. 12 As it floated down he saw that it held many kinds of four-footed animals, reptiles, and wild birds.
13 A voice said to him, “Peter, go and prepare them to be eaten.”
14 Peter replied, “There’s no way I could do that, Lord, for I’ve never eaten anything forbidden or impure according to our Jewish laws.”
15 The voice spoke again. “Nothing is unclean if God declares it to be clean.”[c]
16 The vision was repeated three times.[d] Then suddenly the linen sheet was snatched back up into heaven.
