Food Laws in the Bible

Genesis 9:1-9 --- 2319B.C.

Leviticus 17:10 --- 1461B.C.

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon  the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. (Mushrooms and toadstools are fungus not 'green' herbs. i.e. plant life based on chlorophyll.)
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is  the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.
6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
10 And whatsoever man there be  of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
11 For the life of the flesh is  in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is  the blood that  maketh an atonement for the soul.
12 Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood.
13 And whatsoever man there be  of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.
14 For it is  the life of all flesh; the blood of it is  for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is  the thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.
15 And every soul that eateth that which died of itself , or that which was torn with beasts, whether it be  one of your own country, or a stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and bathe himself  in water, and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean.
16 But if he wash them  not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his iniquity. (Get sick from food poisoning.)
9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; (Are you included it the posterity of Adam and Noah?)

The U.S. Constitution was written "for us and our posterity" before you were born and you are bound by it.

Likewise you bound by a covenant between God and Noah ("and with the seed after you").


Preamble to the U.S. Constitution

   We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


seed = posterity
covenant = constitution
