1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27
11:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying to them,

11:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the animals which ye shall eat of all the beasts which are on the earth.

11:3 Whatever hath cloven hoofs, and feet quite split open, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts -- that shall ye eat.

11:4 Only these shall ye not eat of those that chew the cud, or of those with cloven hoofs: the camel, for it cheweth the cud, but hath not cloven hoofs -- it shall be unclean unto you;

11:5 and the rock-badger, for it cheweth the cud, but hath not cloven hoofs -- it shall be unclean unto you;

11:6 and the hare, for it cheweth the cud, but hath not cloven hoofs -- it shall be unclean unto you;

11:7 and the swine, for it hath cloven hoofs, and feet quite split open, but it cheweth not the cud -- it shall be unclean unto you.

11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch: they shall be unclean unto you.

11:9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatever hath fins and scales in waters, in seas and in rivers, these shall ye eat;

11:10 but all that have not fins and scales in seas and in rivers, of all that swarm in the waters, and of every living soul which is in the waters -- they shall be an abomination unto you.

11:11 They shall be even an abomination unto you: of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase ye shall have in abomination.

11:12 Whatever in the waters hath no fins and scales, that shall be an abomination unto you.

11:13 And these shall ye have in abomination of the fowls; they shall not be eaten; an abomination shall they be: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the sea-eagle,

11:14 and the falcon, and the kite, after its kind;

11:15 every raven after its kind;

11:16 and the female ostrich and the male ostrich, and the sea-gull, and the hawk, after its kind;

11:17 and the owl, and the gannet, and the ibis,

11:18 and the swan, and the pelican, and the carrion vulture,

11:19 and the stork; the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.

11:20 Every winged crawling thing that goeth upon all four shall be an abomination unto you.

11:21 Yet these shall ye eat of every winged crawling thing that goeth upon all four: those which have legs above their feet with which to leap upon the earth.

11:22 These shall ye eat of them: the arbeh after its kind, and the solam after its kind, and the hargol after its kind, and the hargab after its kind.

11:23 But every winged crawling thing that hath four feet shall be an abomination unto you.

11:24 And by these ye shall make yourselves unclean; whoever toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

11:25 And whoever carrieth [ought] of their carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even.

11:26 Every beast that hath cloven hoofs, but not feet quite split open, nor cheweth the cud, shall be unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

11:27 And whatever goeth on its paws, among all manner of beasts that go upon all four, those are unclean unto you: whoever toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

11:28 And he that carrieth their carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even: they shall be unclean unto you.

11:29 And these shall be unclean unto you among the crawling things which crawl on the earth: the mole, and the field-mouse, and the lizard, after its kind;

11:30 and the groaning lizard, and the great red lizard, and the climbing lizard, and the chomet, and the chameleon.

11:31 These shall be unclean unto you among all that crawl: whoever toucheth them when they are dead, shall be unclean until the even.

11:32 And on whatever any of them when they are dead doth fall, it shall be unclean; all vessels of wood, or garment, or skin, or sack, every vessel wherewith work is done -- it shall be put into water, and be unclean until the even; then shall it be clean.

11:33 And every earthen vessel into which [any] of them falleth -- whatever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.

11:34 All food that is eaten on which [such] water hath come shall be unclean; and all drink that is drunk shall be unclean, in every [such] vessel.

11:35 And everything where upon [any part] of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; oven and hearth shall be broken down: they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.

11:36 Nevertheless, a spring or a well, a quantity of water, shall be clean. But he that toucheth their carcase shall be unclean.

11:37 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing-seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean;

11:38 but if water have been put on the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.

11:39 And if any beast which is to you for food die, he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.

11:40 And he that eateth of its carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even: he also that carrieth its carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even.

11:41 And every crawling thing which crawleth on the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.

11:42 Whatever goeth on the belly, and whatever goeth on all four, and all that have a great many feet, of every manner of crawling thing which crawleth on the earth -- these ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

11:43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable through any crawling thing which crawleth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.

11:44 For I am Jehovah your God; and ye shall hallow yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy; and ye shall not make yourselves unclean through any manner of crawling thing which creepeth on the earth.

11:45 For I am Jehovah who brought you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

11:46 This is the law of cattle, and of fowl, and of every living soul that moveth in the waters, and of every soul that crawleth on the earth;

11:47 to make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that is to be eaten and the beast that is not to be eaten.
