  37. To blood is ascribed in Scripture the mysterious sacredness which belongs to life, and God reserved it to himself when allowing man the dominion over and the use of the lower animals for food. Thus reserved, it acquires a double power: (1) that of sacrificial atonement; and (2) that of becoming a curse when wantonly shed, unless duly expiated. ( Genesis 9:4 ; Leviticus 7:26 ; 17:11-13 ) biblestudytools.com
  38. Temper of mind; disposition; state of the passions; -- as if the blood were the seat of emotions. mso.anu.edu.au
  39. As food, prohibited in Genesis 9:4 , where the use of animal food is first allowed. Compare Deuteronomy 12:23 ; Leviticus 3:17 ; 7:26 ; 17:10-14 . The injunction to abstain from blood is renewed in the decree of the council of Jerusalem ( Acts 15:29 ). It has been held by some, and we think correctly, that this law of prohibition was only ceremonial and temporary; while others regard it as still binding on all. Blood was eaten by the Israelites after the battle of Gilboa ( 1 Samuel 14:32-34 ). biblestudytools.com
  40. The blood of sacrifices was caught by the priest in a basin, and then sprinkled seven times on the altar; that of the passover on the doorposts and lintels of the houses ( Exodus 12 ; Leviticus 4:5-7 ; 16:14-19 ). At the giving of the law ( Exodus 24:8 ) the blood of the sacrifices was sprinkled on the people as well as on the altar, and thus the people were consecrated to God, or entered into covenant with him, hence the blood of the covenant ( Matthew 26:28 ; Hebrews 9:19 Hebrews 9:20 ; 10:29 ; 13:20 ). biblestudytools.com
  41. Human blood. The murderer was to be punished ( Genesis 9:5 ). The blood of the murdered "crieth for vengeance" ( Genesis 4:10 ). The "avenger of blood" was the nearest relative of the murdered, and he was required to avenge his death ( Numbers 35:24 Numbers 35:27 ). No satisfaction could be made for the guilt of murder ( Numbers 35:31 ). biblestudytools.com
  42. Blood used metaphorically to denote race ( Acts 17:26 ), and as a symbol of slaughter ( Isaiah 34:3 ). To "wash the feet in blood" means to gain a great victory ( Psalms 58:10 ). Wine, from its red colour, is called "the blood of the grape" ( Genesis 49:11 ). Blood and water issued from our Saviour's side when it was pierced by the Roman soldier ( John 19:34 ). This has led pathologists to the conclusion that the proper cause of Christ's death was rupture of the heart. (Compare Psalms 69:20 .) These dictionary topics are fromM.G.

  48. An animal fluid formed chiefly from the chyle; acquiring important properties during respiration; entering every organ through the circulation; distributing the nutritive principles to every texture, and the source of every secretion. The blood is white in the molluscous and inferior animals, which have been, hence, called white-blooded, to distinguish them from the red-blooded, which class includes the mammalia, birds, reptiles, and fishes. Human blood is composed of water, albumen, fibrin, an animal colouring substance, a little fatty matter-haematelae'um-and different salts; as chlorides of potassium and sodium, phosphate of lime, subcarbonate of soda, lime, magnesia, oxide of iron, and lactate of soda, united with an animal matter. Arterial blood is of a florid red colour, strong smell; s.g. 1.049. Venous blood is of a brownish red; s.g. 1.051. The difference in colour has given occasion to the first being called red blood; the latter, black. The former, which is distributed from the heart, is nearly the same through its whole extent: the latter is the remains of the arterial blood after the different elements have been taken from it in nutrition, and probably differs in composition. It likewise contains different substances absorbed. Venous blood, taken from a vessel and left to itself, becomes solid, and separates into two distinct parts,-the serum or watery supernatant fluid; and the cruor, coag'ulum, crassamen'tum, hepar seu placen'ta san'guinis, placen'ta cruo'ris, in'sula, thrombus, or clot. The serum is chiefly water, holding albumen in solution and the salts of the blood. The clot contains the fibrin, colouring matter-haematosin, a little serum, and a small quantity of salts. M.Le Canu found the blood to be composed-in 1000 parts-of water, 785.590; albumen, 69.415; fibrin, 3.565; colouring matter, 119.626; crystallizable fatty matter, 4.300; oily matter, 2.270; extractive matter soluble in alcohol and water, 1.920; albumen combined with soda, 2.010; chlorides of sodium and potassium; alkaline phosphates, sulphates, and subcarbonates, 7.304; subcarbonate of lime and magnesia, phosphate of lime, magnesia and iron, peroxide of iron, 1.414; loss, 2.586. The four principal components of the blood are fibrin, albumen, corpuscles, and saline matter. In the circulating blood they are thus combined. The following table exhibits the computations of different physiologists regarding the weight of the circulating fluid-arterial and venous. The proportion of arterial blood to venous is about 4 to 9. Much attention has been paid to the varying condition of the blood in disease. The average proportion of each of the organic elements in 1000 parts of healthy blood is as follows, according to Le Canu, and MM. Andral and Gavarret: -fibrin, 3; red corpuscles, 127; solid matter of the serum, 80; water, 790. Dried human blood was, at one time, considered to be anti-epileptic; that of the goat, dried, Sanguis hirci sicca'tus, sudorific and antipleuretic. The dried blood of the ox-Extrac'tum San'guinis Bovi'ni-and the dried red corpuscles have been given as analeptics, especially where there was a deficiency of red corpuscles. Medical Lexicon.
