6. Why would YHWH make humans drink blood!? - Insights from the Hebrew Revelation
In the Torah, YHWH commanded: “He who sheds the blood of man, by man his blood will be shed…” (Gen. 9:6). This seems just to most people.

“Just are you, O Holy One… For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink. It is what they deserve!” (Rev 16:4, ESV from Greek).
