1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the sons of Israel, and say to them; This is the word which Jehovah has commanded, saying,

3 A man, a man from the house of Israel, who slaughters an ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or who slaughters it outside the camp,

4 and brings it not to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation, to offer an offering to Jehovah before the Habitation of Jehovah; blood shall be reckoned to that man; he has shed blood; and that man shall be cut·​·off from among his people;

5 for the sake that the sons of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they sacrifice on the faces of the field, and that they may bring them to Jehovah, to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation, to the priest, and sacrifice them for sacrifices of peace·​·offerings to Jehovah.

6 And the priest shall sprinkle the blood on the altar of Jehovah at the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation, and burn·​·for·​·incense the fat for a restful smell to Jehovah.

7 And they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices to satyrs, after whom they have committed·​·harlotry. This shall be a statute for eternity to them to their generations.

8 And thou shalt say to them, A man, a man there be of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners which sojourn among you, that offers·​·up a burnt·​·offering or sacrifice,

9 and brings it not to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation, to make it an offering to Jehovah; even that man shall be cut·​·off from his peoples.

10 And a man, a man there be of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners that sojourn among you, that eats any blood; I will even put My face against the soul who eats the blood, and will cut· him ·off from among his people.

11 For the soul of the flesh, it is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make·​·atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes·​·atonement for the soul.

12 Therefore I said to the sons of Israel, Not any soul of you shall eat blood, and the sojourner who sojourns in your midst shall not eat blood.

13 And a man, a man from the sons of Israel, or from the sojourner sojourning in your midst, who hunts a hunting of a wild·​·animal or fowl that may be eaten, he shall also spill its blood, and cover it with dust.

14 For it is the soul of all flesh; its blood, it is with the soul of the flesh*; and I said to the sons of Israel, the blood of all flesh you shall not eat: for the soul of all flesh is its blood; all who eat it shall be cut·​·off.

15 And every soul that eats a carcass, or that which was torn, whether among the native born or among the sojourner, he shall both wash his garments, and bathe himself in the water, and be·​·unclean until the evening; and then shall he be·​·clean.

16 But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his iniquity.

Explanation of Leviticus 17      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-5. There is revelation from the Lord to those who are in good and truth of every degree, that if they do not acknowledge that their power to worship is from Him through the heavens, they do violence to holy good and holy truth, because all genuine worship is really from good, in order that there may be harmony between the internal and external man

Verses 6-7. For such worship only, causes the conjunction of truth with good, removes worship from faith without charity, and is perpetual and eternal

Verses 8-9. And, therefore, any one who does not thus worship the Lord is separated from the church and from Divine truths

Verses 10-12. He who violates holy charity by mixing evils and falsities therewith averts himself from the Lord and separates himself from truths, because charity is the life of the church, and external worship ought to be in harmony with internal

Verses 13-16. Concerning the appropriation of good or truth from a principle of persuasion, from merely natural good, or from good contaminated by evil.
