katapi HOME Leviticus 17:1-16 - Blood.  Lv.17.1-16

17 1 And Yahweh said to Moses, 17 2 "Say to Aaron and his sons, and to all the people of Israel, This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded. 17 3 If any man of the house of Israel kills an ox or a lamb or a goat in the camp, or kills it outside the camp, 17 4 and does not bring it to the door of the tent of meeting, to offer it as a gift to Yahweh before the tabernacle of Yahweh, bloodguilt shall be imputed to that man; he has shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people. 17 5 This is to the end that the people of Israel may bring their sacrifices which they slay in the open field, that they may bring them to Yahweh, to the priest at the door of the tent of meeting, and slay them as sacrifices of peace offerings to Yahweh; 17 6 and the priest shall sprinkle the blood on the altar of Yahweh at the door of the tent of meeting, and burn the fat for a pleasing odour to Yahweh. 17 7 So they shall no more slay their sacrifices for satyrs, after whom they play the harlot. This shall be a statute for ever to them throughout their generations.

17 8 "And you shall say to them, Any man of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who offers a burnt offering or sacrifice, 17 9 and does not bring it to the door of the tent of meeting, to sacrifice it to Yahweh; that man shall be cut off from his people.

17 10 "If any man of the house of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn among them eats any blood, I will set my face against that person who eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people. 17 11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it for you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement, by reason of the life. 17 12 Therefore I have said to the people of Israel, No person among you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood. 17 13 Any man also of the people of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust.

17 14 "For the life of every creature is the blood of it; therefore I have said to the people of Israel, You shall not eat the blood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off. 17 15 And every person that eats what dies of itself or what is torn by beasts, whether he is a native or a sojourner, shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening; then he shall be clean. 17 16 But if he does not wash them or bathe his flesh, he shall bear his iniquity."
