The Torah In Haiku: Tzav

We’re told “don’t eat blood”
It’s for sanctification
Not for consumption

Leviticus 7:27: Any person who eats blood shall have his soul cut off from his people

Leviticus 8:15: Moses … collected the blood [and] placed it all around the altar’s protrusions, thus purifying the altar. He poured the rest of the blood at the altar’s base, thus sanctifying it so that atonement could be offered on it.
