The sprinkling of blood
17:1And the LORD spake 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 has commanded, saying,
17:3 What man soever [there be] of the house of Israel, that
kills an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that kills
[it] out of the camp,
17:4 And brings 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 has shed blood ; and that man shall be cut off from among his
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 savour to the LORD.
17:7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices to devils,
after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for
ever to them throughout their generations.
17:8 And you will say to them, Whatsoever man [there be] of
the house of Israel, or of the strangers which temporary stays among you,
that offers a burnt offering or sacrifice,
17:9 And brings 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.
Eating of blood forbidden
17:10 And what ever man [there be] of the house of Israel, or of
the strangers that temporary stays among you, that eats any manner of
blood ; I will even set my face against that soul that 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 to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your
souls for it [is] the blood [that] makes an atonement for the
17:12 Therefore I said to the children of Israel, No soul of
you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that temporary stays
among you eat blood.
17:13 And what ever man [there be] of the children of Israel, or
of the strangers that temporary stays among you, which hunts and
catches any beast or fowl that may be eaten ; he shall even pour
out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.
17:14 For [it is] the life of all flesh ; the blood of it [is]
for the life thereof therefore I said to the children of
Israel, ya'll shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh for the life
of all flesh [is] the blood thereof whom ever eats it shall be
17:15 And every soul that eats that which died [of itself], or
that which was torn [with beasts, whether it be] one of your own
country, or a stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and bathe
[himself] in water, and be unclean until the even then shall he
17:16 But if he wash [them] not, nor bathe his flesh ; then he
shall bear his iniquity.
