For 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.
For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have appointed it to you to make atonement on the altar for your lives, since it is the lifeblood that makes atonement.
Therefore I say to the Israelites: None of you and no foreigner who lives among you may eat blood.
However, you must not eat meat with its lifeblood in it.
But don't eat the blood, since the blood is the life, and you must not eat the life with the meat.
