Strangle (חַנֵּק, πνίγω, to choke). Animals put to death by strangulation, not having the blood properly separated from the flesh, could not therefore be eaten without a violation of the Noachic precept (Ge 9:4). The primitive Christians abstained from them, principally to avoid giving offense to the Jewish converts (Ac 15:20). SEE ALISGEMA; SEE BLOOD.
