Leviticus 3:17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

17 This shall be a perpetual ordinance for your descendants wherever they may dwell. You shall not eat any fat or any blood.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 3:17 Any fat or any blood: this prohibition is mentioned here because portions of this offering could be eaten by lay Israelites, who may not be entirely familiar with the prohibition (cf. 7:22–27; 19:26). The fat prohibited is only the visceral fat mentioned in 3:9–10, 14–15, not muscular fat.

Genesis 9:4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Only meat with its lifeblood still in it you shall not eat.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 9:4 Because a living being dies when it loses most of its blood, the ancients regarded blood as the seat of life, and therefore as sacred. Jewish tradition considered the prohibition against eating meat with blood to be binding on all, because it was given by God to Noah, the new ancestor of all humankind; therefore the early Christian Church retained it for a time (Acts 15:20, 29).
