Laws Against Eating Blood

10“If any one of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them d  eats any blood, I will e  set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from among his people. 11 f  For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar g  to make atonement for your souls h  for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life. 12Therefore 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.

13“Any one also of the people of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten shall i  pour out its blood and j  cover it with earth. 14For the life of every creature
Hebrew all flesh
