Deuteronomy 14 ©
God's children must not disfigure themselves in mourning. What may, and what may not be eaten, of beasts, of fishes, of fowls. That which dieth of itself must not be eaten. Tithing to be truly performed. Tithes and firstlings of cattle to be eaten before the Lord. What is to be done in case of very distant abode. The third year's tithe of alms and charity.
These are ethe beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
The *hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the 1*pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.
And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, hnor touch their dead carcase.
¶Of all clean birds ye shall eat.
And every raven after his kind,
The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,
And the pelican, and the *gier eagle, and the cormorant,
And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
But of qall clean fowls ye may eat.
¶Ye rshall not eat of any thing that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the sstranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: tfor thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God. uThou shalt not *seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
And thou wshalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the *firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:
And thou shalt ybestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul 2desireth: and zthou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,
And the Levite, (because dhe hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) eand the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; fthat the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.
