15 Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates, whatsoever thine heart desireth, according to the [a]blessing of the Lord thy God which he had given thee: both the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, [b]as of the roebuck, and of the hart.

16 Only ye shall not eat the blood, but pour it upon the earth as water.

17 ¶ Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the [c]tithe of thy corn, nor of thy wine, nor of thine oil, nor the firstborn of thy kine, nor of thy sheep, neither any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy free offerings, nor the offering of thine hands,


  1. Deuteronomy 12:15 As God hath given thee power and ability.
  2. Deuteronomy 12:15 Everyone might eat at home as well the beast appointed for sacrifice, as the other.
  3. Deuteronomy 12:17 Meaning, whatsoever was offered to the Lord, might not be eaten, but where he had appointed.

Deuteronomy 12:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

15 Nevertheless, you may slaughter your animals in any of your towns and eat as much of the meat as you want, as if it were gazelle or deer, according to the blessing the Lord your God gives you. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat it. 16 But you must not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water. 17 You must not eat in your own towns the tithe of your grain and new wine and olive oil, or the firstborn of your herds and flocks, or whatever you have vowed to give, or your freewill offerings or special gifts.
