Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Leviticus 17

The blood of all slain beasts must be offered to the LORD at the door of the Tabernacle.

Leviticus 17:1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying:— Leviticus 17:2 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them,—This, is the thing which Yahweh hath commanded, saying: Leviticus 17:3 What man soever, there be of the house of Israel, who slayeth an ox or lamb or goat, in the camp,—or who slayeth it outside the camp; Leviticus 17:4 and, unto the entrance of the tent of meeting, bringeth it not in, to present [it as] an oblation unto Yahweh, before the habitation of Yahweh, blood, shall be imputed to that man—blood, hath he shed, therefore shall that man be cut off from the midst of his people: Leviticus 17:5 to the end that the sons of Israel may bring in their sacrifices which they are offering upon the face of the field, that they may bring them in unto Yahweh—unto the entrance of the tent of meeting, unto the priest,—and that so, as peace-offerings unto Yahweh, they may offer them. Leviticus 17:6 Then shall the priest dash the blood against the altar of Yahweh, at the entrance of the tent of meeting,—and shall make a perfume of the fat, as a satisfying odour, unto Yahweh;

They must not offer to devils.

Leviticus 17:7 so shall they no more offer their sacrifices unto demons, after whom they are unchastely going away,—a statute age-abiding, shall this be to them, unto their generations.

Leviticus 17:8 Wherefore, unto them, shalt thou say: What man soever, there may be of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners that sojourn in their midst,—who causeth to go up an ascending-offering, or a sacrifice; Leviticus 17:9 and, unto the entrance of the tent of meeting, doth not bring it in, to offer it unto Yahweh, then shall that man be cut off from among his kinsfolk.

All eating of blood is forbidden,

Leviticus 17:10 And, what man soever, there may be of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners that sojourn in their midst, that partaketh of any manner of blood, then will I set my face against the person that partaketh of the blood, and will cut him off from the midst of his people. Leviticus 17:11 For, as for the life of the flesh, in the blood, it is, therefore have, I, given it unto you upon the altar, to put a propitiatory-covering over your lives,—for, the blood, it is, which, by virtue of the life, maketh propitiation. Leviticus 17:12 For this cause, have I said unto the sons of Israel, Not a person from among you, shall partake of blood,—Even, the sojourner that sojourneth in your midst, shall not partake of blood. Leviticus 17:13 And, what man soever, there may be, of the sons of Israel, or of the sojourners that sojourn in their midst, who taketh by hunting any wild-beast or bird that may be eaten, then shall he pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust; Leviticus 17:14 for, as for the life of all flesh, the blood thereof, for the life thereof, standeth, therefore have I said unto the sons of Israel—Of the blood of no manner of flesh, shall ye partake, For, the life of all flesh, is, the blood thereof; whoso partaketh thereof, shall be cut off.

and all that dieth alone, or is torn.

Leviticus 17:15 And, in the case of any person who eateth that which died of itself or was torn in pieces, whether he be home-born, or a sojourner, then shall he wash his clothes, and bathe in water, and be unclean until the evening, and then be clean. Leviticus 17:16 But, if he wash them not, and, his flesh, he do not bathe, then shall he bear his iniquity.
