Leviticus 17:10-15 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 " 'Any Israelite or any alien living among them who eats any blood--I will set my face against that person who eats blood1 and will cut him off from his people. 11 For the life of a creature is in the blood,2 and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.3 12 Therefore I say to the Israelites, "None of you may eat blood, nor may an alien living among you eat blood." 13 " 'Any Israelite or any alien living among you who hunts any animal or bird that may be eaten must drain out the blood and cover it with earth,4 14 because the life of every creature is its blood. That is why I have said to the Israelites, "You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off."5 15 " 'Anyone, whether native-born or alien, who eats anything6 found dead or torn by wild animals7 must wash his clothes and bathe with water,8 and he will be ceremonially unclean till evening;9 then he will be clean.
