Leviticus 17:13-15 Living Bible (TLB)

13 Anyone, whether an Israelite or a foreigner living among you, who goes hunting and kills an animal or bird of a kind permitted for food, must pour out the blood and cover it with dust, 14 for the blood is the life. That is why I told the people of Israel never to eat it, for the life of every bird and animal[a] is its blood. Therefore, anyone who eats blood must be excommunicated.

15 “And anyone—native born or foreigner—who eats the dead body of an animal that dies a natural death, or is killed by wild animals, must wash his clothes and bathe himself and be defiled until evening; after that he shall be declared cleansed.


  1. Leviticus 17:14 every bird and animal, literally, “every creature.”
