Bible: Gen 9:4-6

9:4 But 1  you must not eat meat 2  with its life (that is, 3  its blood) in it. 4  9:5 For your lifeblood 5  I will surely exact punishment, 6  from 7  every living creature I will exact punishment. From each person 8  I will exact punishment for the life of the individual 9  since the man was his relative. 10 

9:6Whoever sheds human blood, 11 

by other humans 12 

must his blood be shed;

for in God’s image 13 

God 14  has made humankind.”
