Logic of words on forbidden meat


What is the logic of forbidden meat verse in Genesis 9:4? More specifically, the subject words are accompanied by the following verses; “2All the animals, birds and fish will live in fear  of you. They are all placed under your power. 3Now you can eat them, as well as green plants; I give them all to you for food. 4The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it. I forbid this because the life is in the blood. 5If anyone takes human life, he will be punished. I will punish with death any animal that takes a human life“. (Genesis 9:2-5, TEV).

Immediately after verse 4, verse 5 states as follows:

5If anyone takes human life, he will be punished. I will punish with death any animal that takes a human life. (Genesis 9:5, TEV).

Why is it necessary to review the accompanying verses of the subject word “life”, in the first place? (more…)
