Leviticus 11 ©
What beasts may, and what may not be eaten: what fishes: what fowls: the creeping things which are unclean.
Speak bunto the children of Israel, saying, cThese are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.
Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
Every raven after his kind;
And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
And the swan, and the pelican, and the *gier eagle,
And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap *withal upon the earth;
But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not *clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.
And whatsoever sgoeth upon his paws, among all *manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.
And he that tbeareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.
And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
These are unclean to you among all that creep: wwhosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or *raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be xput into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.
But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
And he that eeateth fof the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
Ye ishall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make 3yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.
For jI am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and kye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any *manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
