Deuteronomy 12:16

Context
12:16 However, you must not eat blood – pour it out on the ground like water.

Deuteronomy 12:23

Context
12:23 However, by no means eat the blood, for the blood is life itself 1  – you must not eat the life with the meat!

1 sn The blood is life itself. This is a figure of speech (metonymy) in which the cause or means (the blood) stands for the result or effect (life). That is, life depends upon the existence and circulation of blood, a truth known empirically but not scientifically tested and proved until the 17th century a.d. (cf. Lev 17:11).
