Any Israelite who sacrifices an ox,[a] a lamb(A) or a goat(B) in the camp or outside of it instead of bringing it to the entrance to the tent of meeting(C) to present it as an offering to the Lord in front of the tabernacle of the Lord(D)—that person shall be considered guilty of bloodshed; they have shed blood and must be cut off from their people.(E) This is so the Israelites will bring to the Lord the sacrifices they are now making in the open fields. They must bring them to the priest, that is, to the Lord, at the entrance to the tent of meeting and sacrifice them as fellowship offerings.(F)

  1. Leviticus 17:3 The Hebrew word can refer to either male or female.

What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,

And bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering unto the Lord before the tabernacle of the Lord; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his people:

To the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings unto the Lord.
