Anyone who eats the fat of an animal from which a food offering may be presented to the LORD must be cut off from their people.
Anyone who eats blood must be cut off from their people.'"
"'I will set my face against any Israelite or any foreigner residing among them who eats blood, and I will cut them off from the people.
