Leviticus 17


17:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
17:2 Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the children of
 Israel, and say to them, This [is] the thing which the LORD
 hath commanded, saying,
17:3 Whatever man [there may be] of the house of Israel, that
 killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat in the camp, or that killeth
 [it] out of the camp,
17:4 And bringeth it not to the door of the tabernacle of the
 congregation, to offer an offering to the LORD before the
 tabernacle of the LORD; blood shall be imputed to that man; he
 hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his
 people:
17:5 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their
 sacrifices which they offer in the open field, even that they
 may bring them to the LORD, to the door of the tabernacle of
 the congregation, to the priest, and offer them [for]
 peace-offerings to the LORD.
17:6 And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of
 the LORD [at] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,
 and burn the fat for a sweet savor to the LORD.
17:7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices to idols,
 with which they have committed idolatry: This shall be a
 statute for ever to them throughout their generations.
17:8 And thou shalt say to them, Whatever man [there may be] of
 the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among
 you, that offereth a burnt-offering or sacrifice,
17:9 And bringeth it not to the door of the tabernacle of the
 congregation, to offer it to the LORD; even that man shall be
 cut off from among his people.
17:10 And whatever man [there may be] of the house of Israel, or
 of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner
 of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth
 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 to you upon the altar, to make an atonement for your
 souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the
 soul.
17:12 Therefore I said to the children of Israel, No soul of you
 shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth
 among you eat blood.
17:13 And whatever man [there may be] of the children of Israel,
 or of the strangers that sojourn among you, who hunteth and
 catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even
 pour out its blood, and cover it with dust.
17:14 For [it is] the life of all flesh, the blood of it [is]
 for the life of it; therefore I said to the children of Israel,
 Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of
 all flesh [is] its blood: whoever eateth it shall be cut off.
17:15 And every soul that eateth that which died [of itself], or
 that which was torn [with beasts], ([whether it is] one of your
 own country, or a stranger) he shall both wash his clothes, and
 bathe [himself] in water, and be unclean until the evening;
 then shall he be clean.
17:16 But if he doth not wash [them], nor bathe his flesh; then
 he shall bear his iniquity.
