1 Et locutus est Dominus ad Moysen dicens:
2 "Loquere Aaron et filiis eius et cunctis filiis Israel et dices ad eos: Iste est sermo, quem mandavit Dominus dicens:
3 Homo quilibet de domo Israel, si occiderit bovem aut ovem sive capram in castris vel extra castra
4 et non attulerit ad ostium tabernaculi conventus in oblationem Domino coram habitaculo Domini, sanguinis reus erit; sanguinem fudit et peribit de medio populi sui.
5 Ideo offerre debent sacerdoti filii Israel hostias suas, quas occidunt in agro, ut afferant Domino ante ostium tabernaculi conventus et immolent eas hostias pacificas Domino.
6 Fundetque sacerdos sanguinem super altare Domini ad ostium tabernaculi conventus et adolebit adipem in odorem suavitatis Domino;
7 et nequaquam ultra immolabunt hostias suas daemonibus, cum quibus fornicati sunt: legitimum sempiternum erit hoc illis et posteris eorum"
8 Et ad ipsos dices: "Homo de domo Israel et de advenis, qui peregrinantur apud vos, qui obtulerit holocaustum sive sacrificium
9 et ad ostium tabernaculi conventus non adduxerit victimam, ut offeratur Domino, interibit de populo suo.
10 Homo quilibet de domo Israel et de advenis, qui peregrinantur inter eos, si comederit sanguinem, confirmabo faciem meam contra talem animam et disperdam eam de populo suo.
11 Quia anima carnis in sanguine est, et ego dedi illum vobis, ut super altare in eo expietis pro animabus vestris, quia sanguis ipse per animam expiat.
12 Idcirco dixi filiis Israel: Omnis anima ex vobis non comedet sanguinem, nec ex advenis, qui peregrinantur inter vos.
13 Homo quicumque de filiis Israel et de advenis, qui peregrinantur apud vos, si venatione ceperit feram vel avem, quibus vesci licitum est, fundat sanguinem eius et operiat illum terra.
14 Anima enim omnis carnis, sanguis est anima eius, unde dixi filiis Israel: Sanguinem universae carnis non comedetis, quia anima omnis carnis sanguis eius est; et, quicumque comederit illum, interibit.
15 Anima, quae comederit morticinum vel captum a bestia, tam de indigenis quam de advenis, lavabit vestes suas et semetipsum aqua, et contaminatus erit usque ad vesperum; et hoc ordine mundus fiet.
16 Quod si non laverit vestimenta sua nec corpus, portabit iniquitatem suam"
King James Version
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, that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,
4 And 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 imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people:
5 To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which 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 shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and burn the fat for a sweet savour unto the LORD.
7 And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have 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, that 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 ¶ And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I 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 to make an atonement for your souls: for it 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, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.
14 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.
15 And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which was torn with beasts, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and 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 he shall bear his iniquity.
