Leviticus 17:12, 14

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

12Therefore I say to the Israelites, “None of you may eat blood, nor may an alien living among you eat blood.”

14┬ábecause the life of every creature is its blood. That is why I have said to the Israelites, “You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off.”
