Deuteronomy 15:23
Firstborn Animals

19All the firstling males that come of your herd and of your flock you shall sanctify to the LORD your God: you shall do no work with the firstling of your bullock, nor shear the firstling of your sheep. 20You shall eat it before the LORD your God year by year in the place which the LORD shall choose, you and your household. 21And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, you shall not sacrifice it to the LORD your God. 22You shall eat it within your gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart. 23Only you shall not eat the blood thereof; you shall pour it on the ground as water.
