      1  The blood of all slain beasts must be offered to the Lord
        at the door of the tabernacle.
     7  They must not offer to devils.

    - devils.
      {Seirim,} properly signifies hairy or hairy ones; and hence
      is used not only for he-goats, but also for some fabulous
      beings or sylvan gods, to whom was ascribed the form of
      goats.  Maimonides says that the Zabian idolaters worshipped
      demons under the form of goats; and that this custom being
      spread among other nations, gave occasion to this precept.
      He-goats, however, are probably intended here, which were
      objects of divine honor among the Egyptians under the name
      of honor among the Egyptians under the name of Mendes.
      Herodotus says that all goats were worshipped in Egypt; but
      particularly he-goats.  From these seem to have sprung Pan,
      Silenus, and the innumerable herd of those imaginary beings,
      fauns, satyrs, dryads, etc., all woodland gods, and held in
      veneration by the Greeks and Romans.
    
    - gone a whoring.
      Though this phrase is equivalent, in Scripture, to that of
      committing idolatry, yet it is to be taken sometimes in a
      literal sense.  Baalpeor and Ashtaroth were worshipped with
      obscene rite; and public prostitution formed a great part of
      the worship among the Egyptians, Moabites, Canaanites,
      Greeks, and Romans.

    VERSE 11 
     - the life.
      This sentence, which contains a most important truth, had
      existed in the Mosaic writings for more than 3,000 years,
      before the attention of any philosopher was drawn to the
      subject.  That the blood actually possesses a living
      principle, and that the life of the whole body is derived
      from it, is a doctrine of revelation, and a doctrine which
      the experiments of the most accurate anatomists have served
      strongly to confirm.  The proper circulation of this
      important fluid through the whole human system was first
      taught by Solomon in figurative language, (Ec 12:6,) and
      discovered, as it is called, and demonstrated by Dr. Harvey
      in 1628; though some Italian philosophers had the same notion
      a little before.  This accurate anatomist was the first who
      fully revived the Mosaic notion of the vitality of the blood;
      which was afterwards adopted by the justly celebrated Dr.
      John Hunter, professor of anatomy, and established by him, by
      a great variety of strong reasoning and accurate experiments.
