9 without bringing it to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting to offer it to Yahweh, will be outlawed from his people.
10 "If any member of the House of Israel or any resident alien consumes blood of any kind, I shall set my face against that individual who consumes blood and shall outlaw him from his people.
Lev 3:17 1Sam 14:33 Deut 12:16 Deut 12:23 Gen 9:4 Jer 44:11 Lev 7:26-27

Deut 14:21 Exod 22:31 Lev 22:8 Lev 11:25 Lev 15:5 Ezek 4:14 Ezek 44:31
16 But anyone who does not wash clothing and body will bear the consequences of his guilt." '
