{Leviticus 7:26} Moreover ye shall eat 398 z8799 no manner x3808 x3605 of blood, 1818 [whether it be] of fowl 5775 or of beast, 929 in any x3605 of your dwellings. 4186
ye shall eat:
The prohibition of the fat or suet, which was restricted to animals offered in sacrifice, taught reverence to the altar and ordinances of God; but that of blood, which was extended to all land animals, had especial respect to the atoning blood of the sacrifice, and of the great antitype which the sacrifice prefigured. "[It shall be] a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood." {Lev 3:17} + "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. ... 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." {Lev 17:10-14} + "But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall ye not eat." {Gen 9:4} + "Then they told Saul, saying, Behold, the people sin against the LORD, in that they eat with the blood. And he said, Ye have transgressed: roll a great stone unto me this day. ... And Saul said, Disperse yourselves among the people, and say unto them, Bring me hither every man his ox, and every man his sheep, and slay [them] here, and eat; and sin not against the LORD in eating with the blood. And all the people brought every man his ox with him that night, and slew [them] there." {1Sm 14:33-34} + "Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye possess the land?" {Ezk 33:25} + "Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you." {Jhn 6:53} + "But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood." {Act 15:20} + "That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well." {Act 15:29} + "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;" {Eph 1:7} + "For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:" {1Tm 4:4} - Cross Reference Bible Search
