Bible: Lev 7:18-27

7:18 If some of the meat of his peace offering sacrifice is ever eaten on the third day it will not be accepted; it will not be accounted to the one who presented it, since it is spoiled, 1  and the person who eats from it will bear his punishment for iniquity. 2  7:19 The meat which touches anything ceremonially 3  unclean must not be eaten; it must be burned up in the fire. As for ceremonially clean meat, 4  everyone who is ceremonially clean may eat the meat. 7:20 The person who eats meat from the peace offering sacrifice which belongs to the Lord while his uncleanness persists 5  will be cut off from his people. 6  7:21 When a person touches anything unclean (whether human uncleanness, or an unclean animal, or an unclean detestable creature) 7  and eats some of the meat of the peace offering sacrifice which belongs to the Lord, that person will be cut off from his people.’ 8 

Sacrificial Instructions for the Common People: Fat and Blood

7:22 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 9  7:23 Tell the Israelites, ‘You must not eat any fat of an ox, sheep, or goat. 7:24 Moreover, the fat of an animal that has died of natural causes 10  and the fat of an animal torn by beasts may be used for any other purpose, 11  but you must certainly never eat it. 7:25 If anyone eats fat from the animal from which he presents a gift to the Lord, that person will be cut off from his people. 12  7:26 And you must not eat any blood of the birds or the domesticated land animals in any of the places where you live. 13  7:27 Any person who eats any blood – that person will be cut off from his people.’ 14
