10 “‘I will set my face against any Israelite or any foreigner residing among them who eats blood,(A) and I will cut them off from the people. 11 For the life of a creature is in the blood,(B) and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.[a](C) 12 Therefore I say to the Israelites, “None of you may eat blood, nor may any foreigner residing among you eat blood.”
