I will turn my face away from anyone among you who eats any blood. I will cut him off from his people. Because the life of the flesh is in the blood. I have given this all to you for the altar, so that you are absolved, because life exists within the offering. Whoever hunts an animal shall let its blood drain out and cover it with dust, since the life of the flesh is in the blood. And whoever eats a fallen or hurt animal, whether local or stranger, shall wash his clothes and himself with water and be unclean until the evening, when he will be pure again. If he does not do this, he shall bear his own guilt.
