1Then the Lord said to Moses,
3“If any native Israelite sacrifices a bull*17:3 Or cow. or a lamb or a goat anywhere inside or outside the camp
8“Give them this command as well. If any native Israelite or foreigner living among you offers a burnt offering or a sacrifice
10“And if any native Israelite or foreigner living among you eats or drinks blood in any form, I will turn against that person and cut him off from the community of your people,
13“And if any native Israelite or foreigner living among you goes hunting and kills an animal or bird that is approved for eating, he must drain its blood and cover it with earth.
15“And if any native-born Israelites or foreigners eat the meat of an animal that died naturally or was torn up by wild animals, they must wash their clothes and bathe themselves in water. They will remain ceremonially unclean until evening, but then they will be clean.
