The LORD said to Moses,
"Say to the Israelites: 'Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats.124
The fat of an animal found dead or torn by wild animals2 may be used for any other purpose, but you must not eat it.
Anyone who eats the fat of an animal from which an offering by fire may bea made to the LORD must be cut off from his people.
And wherever you live, you must not eat the blood3 of any bird or animal.
If anyone eats blood,4 that person must be cut off from his people.' "
