1Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 2'Speak to Aaron and his sons and al the Israelites and say: "This is the order that Yahweh has given: 3"Any man of the House of Israel who slaughters a bull, lamb or goat, whether inside the camp oroutside it, 4without bringing it to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting to make an offering of it to Yahweh in front ofhis Dwel ing, that man wil be answerable for bloodshed; he has shed blood, and that man wil be outlawed fromhis people. 5The purpose of this is that the Israelites should instead bring their sacrifices, which they wouldotherwise offer in the countryside, to Yahweh at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, to the priest, and offer themas communion sacrifices to Yahweh; 6and the priest wil sprinkle the blood on Yahweh's altar at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and willburn the fat as a smel pleasing to Yahweh. 7No longer may they offer their sacrifices to the satyrs in whose service they used to prostitutethemselves. This is a perpetual law for them and for their descendants." 8'You will also say to them, "Any member of the House of Israel or any resident alien who offers a burntoffering or sacrifice 9without bringing it to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting to offer it to Yahweh, will be outlawed from hispeople. 10"If any member of the House of Israel or any resident alien consumes blood of any kind, I shal set myface against that individual who consumes blood and shal outlaw him from his people. 11For the life of the creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you for performing the rite of expiationon the altar for your lives, for blood is what expiates for a life. 12That is why I told the Israelites: None of you wil consume blood, nor wil any resident alien consumeblood. 13"Anyone, whether Israelite or resident alien, who hunts and catches game, whether animal or bird,which it is lawful to eat, must pour out its blood and cover it with earth. 14For the life of every creature is its blood, and I have told the Israelites: You wil not consume theblood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood, and anyone who consumes it wil be outlawed. 15"Anyone, citizen or alien, who eats an animal that has died a natural death or been savaged, mustwash clothing and body, and wil be unclean until evening, but wil then be clean. 16But anyone who does not wash clothing and body wil bear the consequences of his guilt."
