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).

Previously, the main issue that was posed is: “Whether not not the word “life” stated in verse 4 refers only to  “human” life,  to the exclusion of “animal” life”.

If your answer is NO, that is- both human and animal life are deemed included in the word “life” in verse 4, then it is necessary to review the accompanying verses in order to be sure on the thoughts of the One who spoke, whether or not, it is really so.

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…)
