Leviticus 17

CHAPTER 17

Laws Regarding Offerings

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to Aaron and to his sons, and to all the sons of Israel! And you shall say to them this saying which the  lord gives charge, saying, The man, a man of the sons of Israel, who ever should slay a calf or a sheep or a goat in the camp, and who ever should slay outside the camp, and [3to 4the 5door 6of the 7tent 8of the 9testimony 1should not 2bring it], so as to bring a gift to the  lord before the tent of the  lord; blood shall be imputed to that man, for blood was poured out. [2shall be utterly destroyed 1That soul] from its people, so that [4should bring 1the 2sons 3of Israel] their sacrifices, as many as they should slay in the plains, and shall bring them to the  lord at the door of the tent of the testimony, to the priest. And they shall sacrifice [2as a sacrifice 3of deliverance 4to the 5  lord 1them]. And [3shall pour 1the 2priest] the blood upon the altar, before the  lord, by the door of the tent of the testimony. And he shall offer the fat for a scent of pleasant aroma to the  lord. And they shall not sacrifice still their sacrifices to the vain gods in which they fornicate after them; [2law 1it will be an eternal] to you unto your generations. And you shall say to them, The man, a man from the sons of Israel, and from the foreigners of the ones lying nearby among you, who ever should offer a whole burnt-offering or sacrifice, and at the door of the tent of the testimony should not bring anything to offer it to the  lord, [2shall be utterly destroyed 1that man] from his people. 10 And the man, a man of the sons of Israel, or of the foreigners of the ones lying nearby among you, who ever should eat any blood, that I will set my face against the soul eating the blood, and I will destroy it from out of its people. 11 For the life of all flesh [2its blood 1is]. And I gave it to you upon the altar to atone for your souls. For its blood [2for 3the soul 1shall atone]. 12 On account of this I have said to the sons of Israel, Every soul of you shall not eat blood; and the foreigner lying near by to you shall not eat blood. 13 And the man, a man of the sons of Israel, or of the foreigners lying near to you, who ever shall hunt a hunt for a wild beast or birds, which is to be eaten, he shall pour out its blood, and cover it in the ground. 14 For the life of all flesh [2its blood 1is], and I said to the sons of Israel, The blood of all flesh you shall not eat, for life of all flesh [2its blood 1is]. Every one eating it shall be utterly destroyed. 15 And every soul who should eat decaying flesh, or flesh taken by wild beasts, among the native born, or by the foreigners, shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and will be unclean until evening; then he will be clean. 16 But if he should not wash his garments, and [3his body 1should not 2bathe] in water, then he shall take the violation of the law himself.
