Hebrews 13:14-16 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 For we have no city here on earth to be our permanent home, but we seek the city that is destined to come.[a] 15 So we no longer offer up a steady stream of blood sacrifices, but through Jesus, we will offer up to God a steady stream of praise sacrifices—these are “the lambs”[b] we offer from our lips that celebrate his name![c]

16 We will show mercy to the poor[d] and not miss an opportunity to do acts of kindness for others, for these are the true sacrifices that delight God’s heart.
