Bible: Leviticus 17:3-7

17:3 Blood guilt 1  will be accounted to any man 2  from the house of Israel 3  who slaughters an ox or a lamb or a goat inside the camp or outside the camp, 4  17:4 but has not brought it to the entrance of the Meeting Tent 5  to present it as 6  an offering to the Lord before the tabernacle of the Lord. He has shed blood, so that man will be cut off from the midst of his people. 7  17:5 This is so that 8  the Israelites will bring their sacrifices that they are sacrificing in the open field 9  to the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent to the priest and sacrifice them there as peace offering sacrifices to the Lord. 17:6 The priest is to splash 10  the blood on the altar 11  of the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent, and offer the fat up in smoke for a soothing aroma to the Lord. 17:7 So they must no longer offer 12  their sacrifices to the goat demons, 13  acting like prostitutes by going after them. 14  This is to be a perpetual statute for them throughout their generations. 15
