The LORD spoke to Moses. He said,
"Speak to the people of Israel. Tell them, 'Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats.
Do not eat the fat of any animal that is found dead. Do not eat the fat of an animal that wild animals have torn apart. But you can use the fat for any other purpose.
" 'Suppose an animal has been sacrificed as an offering that is made to the LORD with fire. No one may eat its fat. If he does, he will be cut off from his people.
" 'No matter where you live, do not eat the blood of any bird or animal.
If anyone does, he will be cut off from his people.' "
