The sprinkling of blood

17:1 And 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 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 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 soul.
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 cut off.
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 be clean.
17:16 But if he wash [them] not, nor bathe his flesh ; then he shall bear his iniquity.
