I never knew Leviticus disallowed so many things. Here’s a sample:
  1. Burning any yeast or honey in offerings to God (2:11)
  2. Failing to include salt in offerings to God (2:13)
  3. Eating fat (3:17)
  4. Eating blood (3:17)
  5. Failing to testify against any wrongdoing you’ve witnessed (5:1)
  6. Failing to testify against any wrongdoing you’ve been told about (5:1)
  7. Touching an unclean animal (5:2)
  8. Carelessly making an oath (5:4)
  9. Deceiving a neighbour about something trusted to them (6:2)
  10. Finding lost property and lying about it (6:3)

The full list of 75.
