1 Laws about special sacrifices
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say unto them; This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded, saying,
3 What man soever there be of the house of Israel, See Deut. 12:5,15,21that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,
4 Deut. 12:5,6,13,14And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering unto the Lord before the tabernacle of the Lord; blood shall be Rom. 5:13imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man Gen. 17:14shall be cut off from among his people:
5 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, Gen. 21:33;& 22:2;& 31:54;Deut. 12:2which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings unto the Lord.
6 And the priest ch. 3:2shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and Ex. 29:18;Num. 18:17burn the fat for a sweet savour unto the Lord.
7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices Deut. 32:17;2 Chr. 11:15;1 Cor. 10:20unto devils, after whom they Ex. 34:15;Deut. 31:16;Ezek. 23:8have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations.
8 And thou shalt say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, ch. 1:2,3that offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,
9 And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it unto the Lord; even that man shall be cut off from among his people.
10 Gen. 9:4;Deut. 12:16,23;& 15:23;1 Sam. 14:33And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; ch. 20:3,5,6I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar Mat. 26:28;Rom. 3:25;Eph. 1:7;Col. 1:14,20;1 Pet. 1:2;1 John 1:7to make an atonement for your souls: for Heb. 9:22it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
12 Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.
13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, [a]which ch. 7:26hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even Deut. 12:16,24pour out the blood thereof, and Ezek. 24:7cover it with dust.
14 ver. 11,12;Gen. 9:4;Deut. 12:23For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.
15 Ex. 22:31;Ezek. 4:14;& 44:31And every soul that eateth [b]that which died of itself, or that which was torn with beasts, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger, ch. 11:25he shall both wash his clothes, ch. 15:5and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean.
16 But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then ch. 5:1he shall bear his iniquity.
