No sacrifices to be offered but at the door of the tabernacle: a prohibition of blood.
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
Et locutus est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens :
2 Speak to Aaron and his sons, and to all the children of Israel, saying to them: This is the word, which the Lord hath commanded, saying:
Loquere Aaron et filiis ejus, et cunctis filiis Israel, dicens ad eos : Iste est sermo quem mandavit Dominus, dicens :
3 Any man whosoever of the house of Israel if he kill an ox, or a sheep, or a goat in the camp, or without the camp,
Homo quilibet de domo Israel, si occiderit bovem aut ovem, sive capram, in castris vel extra castra,
4 And offer it not at the door of the tabernacle an oblation to the Lord, shall be guilty of blood: as if he had shed blood, so shall he perish from the midst of his people.
et non obtulerit ad ostium tabernaculi oblationem Domino, sanguinis reus erit : quasi si sanguinem fuderit, sic peribit de medio populi sui.
5 Therefore the children of Israel shall bring to the priest their victims, which they kill in the field, that they may be sanctified to the Lord before the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, and they may sacrifice them for peace offerings to the Lord.
Ideo sacerdoti offerre debent filii Israel hostias suas, quas occident in agro, ut sanctificentur Domino ante ostium tabernaculi testimonii, et immolent eas hostias pacificas Domino.
6 And the priest shall pour the blood upon the altar of the Lord, at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, and shall burn the fat for a sweet odour to the Lord.
Fundetque sacerdos sanguinem super altare Domini ad ostium tabernaculi testimonii, et adolebit adipem in odorem suavitatis Domino :
7 And they shall no more sacrifice their victims to devils, with whom they have committed fornication. It shall be an ordinance for ever to them and to their posterity.
et nequaquam ultra immolabunt hostias suas daemonibus, cum quibus fornicati sunt. Legitimum sempiternum erit illis et posteris eorum.
8 And thou shalt say to them: The man of the house of Israel, and of the strangers who sojourn among you, that offereth a holocaust or a victim,
Et ad ipsos dices : Homo de domo Israel, et de advenis qui peregrinantur apud vos, qui obtulerit holocaustum sive victimam,
9 And bringeth it not to the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, that it may be offered to the Lord, shall perish from among his people.
et ad ostium tabernaculi testimonii non adduxerit eam, ut offeratur Domino, interibit de populo suo.
10 If any man whosoever of the house of Israel, and of the strangers that sojourn among them, eat blood, I will set my face against his soul, and will cut him off from among his people:
Homo quilibet de domo Israel et de advenis qui pereginantur inter eos, si comederit sanguinem, obfirmabo faciem meam contra animam illius, et disperdam eam de populo suo,
11 Because the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you, that you may make atonement with it upon the altar for your souls, and the blood may be for an expiation of the soul.
quia anima carnis in sanguine est : et ego dedi illum vobis, ut super altare in eo expietis pro animabus vestris, et sanguis pro animae piaculo sit.
12 Therefore I have said to the children of Israel: No soul of you, nor of the strangers that sojourn among you, shall eat blood.
Idcirco dixi filiis Israel : Omnis anima ex vobis non comedet sanguinem, nec ex advenis qui peregrinantur apud vos.
13 Any man whosoever of the children of Israel, and of the strangers that sojourn among you, if by hunting or fowling, he take a wild beast or a bird, which is lawful to eat, let him pour out its blood, and cover it with earth.
Homo quicumque de filiis Israel, et de advenis qui peregrinantur apud vos, si venatione atque aucupio ceperit feram, vel avem, quibus vesci licitum est, fundat sanguinem ejus, et operiat illum terra.
14 For the life of all flesh is in the blood: therefore I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh at all, because the life of the flesh is in the blood, and whosoever eateth it, shall be cut off.
Anima enim omnis carnis in sanguine est : unde dixi filiis Israel : Sanguinem universae carnis non comedetis, quia anima carnis in sanguine est : et quicumque comederit illum, interibit.
15 The soul that eateth that which died of itself, or has been caught by a beast, whether he be one of your own country or a stranger, shall wash his clothes and himself with water, and shall be defiled until the evening: and in this manner he shall be made clean.
Anima, quae comederit morticinum, vel captum a bestia, tam de indigenis, quam de advenis, lavabit vestimenta sua et semetipsum aqua, et contaminatus erit usque ad vesperum : et hoc ordine mundus fiet.
16 But if he do not wash his clothes, and his body, he shall bear his iniquity.
Quod si non laverit vestimenta sua et corpus, portabit iniquitatem suam.
