Leviticus 11


11:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying to them.
11:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, These [are] the
 beasts which ye may eat among all the beasts that [are] on the
 earth.
11:3 Whatever parteth the hoof, and is cloven-footed, [and]
 cheweth the cud among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
11:4 Nevertheless, these shall ye not eat, of them that chew the
 cud, or of them that divide the hoof: the camel, because he
 cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he [is] unclean to
 you.
11:5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not
 the hoof; he [is] unclean to you.
11:6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not
 the hoof: he [is] unclean to you.
11:7 And the swine, though he divideth the hoof, and [is]
 cloven-footed, yet he cheweth not the cud; he [is] unclean to
 you.
11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye
 not touch; they [are] unclean to you.
11:9 These shall ye eat, of all that [are] in the waters:
 whatever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and
 in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
11:10 And all that have not fins nor scales in the seas, and in
 the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living
 animal which [is] in the waters, they [shall be] an abomination
 to you:
11:11 They shall be even an abomination to you; ye shall not eat
 of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in
 abomination.
11:12 Whatever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that
 [shall be] an abomination to you.
11:13 And these [are they which] ye shall have in abomination
 among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they [are] an
 abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
11:14 And the vultur, and the kite after his kind;
11:15 Every raven after his kind;
11:16 And the owl, and the night-hawk, and the cuckow, and the
 hawk after his kind,
11:17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
11:18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier-eagle,
11:19 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the
 lapwing, and the bat.
11:20 All fowls that creep, going upon [all] four, [shall be] an
 abomination to you.
11:21 Yet these may ye eat, of every flying creeping animal that
 goeth upon [all] four, which have legs above their feet, to
 leap with upon the earth;
11:22 [Even] these of them ye may eat; the locust after its
 kind, and the bald locust after its kind, and the beetle after
 its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind.
11:23 But all [other] flying creeping animals, which have four
 feet, [shall be] an abomination to you.
11:24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whoever toucheth the
 carcass of them shall be unclean until the evening.
11:25 And whoever beareth [aught] of the carcass of them shall
 wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening.
11:26 [The carcasses] of every beast which divideth the hoof,
 and [is] not cloven-footed, nor cheweth the cud, [are] unclean
 to you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.
11:27 And whatever goeth upon its paws, among all manner of
 beasts that go on [all] four, those [are] unclean to you:
 whoever toucheth their carcass shall be unclean until the
 evening.
11:28 And he that beareth the carcass of them shall wash his
 clothes, and be unclean until the evening: they [are] unclean
 to you.
11:29 These also [shall be] unclean to you among the creeping
 animals that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse,
 and the tortoise, after its kind,
11:30 And the ferret and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the
 snail, and the mole.
11:31 These [are] unclean to you among all that creep: whoever
 doth touch them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until the
 evening.
11:32 And upon whatever [any] of them, when they are dead, doth
 fall, it shall be unclean; whether [it is] any vessel of wood,
 or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatever vessel [it is], in which
 [any] work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be
 unclean until the evening; so it shall be cleansed.
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 Of all meat which may be eaten, [that] on which [such]
 water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drank
 in every [such] vessel, shall be unclean.
11:35 And every [thing] on which [any part] of their carcass
 falleth, shall be unclean; [whether] an oven, or ranges for
 pots, they shall be broken down: [for] they [are] unclean, and
 shall be unclean to you.
11:36 Nevertheless, a fountain or pit, [in which there is]
 plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their
 carcass shall be unclean.
11:37 And if [any part] of their carcass shall fall upon any
 sowing-seed which is to be sown, it [shall be] clean.
11:38 But if [any] water shall be put upon the seed, and [any
 part] of their carcass shall fall on it, it [shall be] unclean
 to you.
11:39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, shall die; he that
 toucheth its carcass shall be unclean until the evening.
11:40 And he that eateth of its carcass shall wash his clothes,
 and be unclean until the evening; he also that beareth its
 carcass shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the
 evening.
11:41 And every creeping animal that creepeth upon the earth
 [shall be] an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
11:42 Whatever goeth upon the belly, and whatever goeth upon
 [all] four, or whatever hath more feet among all creeping
 animals that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for
 they [are] an abomination.
11:43 Ye shall not make your selves abominable with any creeping
 animal that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean
 with them, that ye should be defiled by them.
11:44 For I [am] the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify
 yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I [am] holy: neither
 shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping animal
 that creepeth upon the earth.
11:45 For I [am] the LORD that bringeth you 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 the beasts, and of the fowl, and of
 every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every
 creature that creepeth upon the earth;
11:47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean,
 and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may
 not be eaten.
