Leviticus 11

CHAPTER 11

Laws Regarding Unclean Animals

And the  lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel! saying, These are the animals which you shall eat from out of all of the animals of the ones upon the earth. Every animal being cloven hoof, and cloven-footed, clawing with two claws, and taken up chewing the cud among the animals, these you shall eat. Except from these you shall not eat -- of the ones taking up chewing the cud, and of the ones not being cloven of the hoofs, and clawing cloven-footed -- the camel, for [2takes up 3chewing the cud 1this one], and the hoof is not cloven; this one is unclean to you. And the hare, for [2takes up 3chewing the cud 1this one], and its hoof is not cloven; this one is unclean to you. And the hyrax, for [2does not 3take up 4chewing the cud 1this one], and the hoof is not cloven; this one is unclean to you. And the pig, for [2is cloven 3of hoof 1this one], and claws with the claw of the hoof, but this one takes not up chewing the cud; this one is unclean to you. Of their meats you shall not eat, and of the meats of their decaying flesh you shall not touch; these are unclean to you. And these you shall eat out of all the ones in the waters -- all as many as there are fins to them and scales in the waters, and in the seas, and in the rushing streams -- these you shall eat. 10 And all as many as there are not fins to them, nor scales, being in the waters, and in the seas, and in the rushing streams, of all which bubble the waters, and from every soul living in the water, it is an abomination. 11 And they shall be abominations to you; [3of 4their meats 1you shall not 2eat]. And their decaying flesh you shall abhor. 12 And all as many as there are not fins to them, nor scales of the ones in the waters -- [3an abomination 1this 2is] to you. 13 And these you shall abhor from the winged creatures, and they shall not be eaten, it is an abomination -- the eagle, and the griffin, and the osprey, 14 and the vulture, and kite, and the ones likened to it. And all the crows, and the ones likened to it. 15 And the ostrich, and owl, and gull, and the ones likened to it. 16 And hawk, and the ones likened to it. 17 And long-eared owl, and cormorant, and ibis, 18 and the purple-legged stork, and pelican, and swan, 19 and heron, and curlew, and the ones likened to it. And hoopoe, and bat, 20 and all the crawling things of the winged creatures which go upon fours, it is an abomination to you. 21 But these you shall eat from the crawling things of the winged creatures which go upon fours -- the ones which have legs upward from their feet to spring up with them upon the earth. 22 And you shall eat these from them -- the grasshopper, and the ones likened to it; and the hopping locust, and the ones likened to it; and crawling locust, and the ones likened to it; and the locust, and the ones likened to it. 23 And every crawling thing of the winged creatures which are of four feet -- it is an abomination to you. 24 And by these you shall be defiled -- every one touching their decaying flesh will be unclean until evening. 25 And every one lifting their decaying flesh shall wash their garments, and shall be unclean until evening. 26 And among all the animals which are cloven hoof, and with cloven-footed claws, and of chewing the cud does not chew the cud -- [2unclean 1they shall be] to you; every one touching their decaying flesh will be unclean until evening. 27 And every one which goes upon his hands among all the wild beasts, which go upon fours, it is unclean to you. Every one touching of their decaying flesh will be unclean until evening. 28 And the one lifting of their decaying flesh, he shall wash his garments, and he will be unclean until evening. [3unclean 1These 2shall be] to you. 29 And these are unclean to you of the crawling things, of the ones crawling upon the earth -- the weasel, and the mouse, and the [2crocodile 1dry land], and the ones likened to it. 30 The field-mouse, and chameleon, and newt, and lizard, and mole -- 31 these are unclean to you from out of all the crawling things of the ones crawling upon the earth; every one touching their decaying flesh will be unclean until evening. 32 And all upon what ever should fall upon it, upon their ones having died, shall be unclean from every [2item 1wooden], or garment, or skin, or a sackcloth. Every item in which ever [2should be done 1work] by it [2into 3water 1shall be dipped], and it shall be unclean until evening -- and then it will be clean. 33 And every [2item 1earthenware] into what ever should fall in from them inside, as much as should be inside, it shall be unclean, and it shall be broken. 34 And every food eaten, into what ever should come upon it water from such a container, will be unclean to you. And every beverage which is drunk in any such receptacle, it shall be unclean. 35 And all upon what ever should fall from their decaying flesh upon it, it shall be unclean -- ovens and pots with feet shall be demolished; [3unclean 1these 2are], and they shall be unclean to you. 36 Except springs of waters, or a well, or a gathering of water, it will be clean; but the one touching their decaying flesh, it shall be unclean. 37 And if anything should fall from their decaying flesh upon any seed fit for sowing, which shall be sown, it shall be clean. 38 But if [2should be poured 1water] upon any seed, and [2should fall 1their decaying flesh] upon it, it is unclean to you. 39 And if one should die of the animals, which [2is allowed 3for you 4to eat, 1this one], the one touching of their decaying flesh, he will be unclean until evening. 40 And the one eating from their decaying flesh, he shall wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. And the one lifting of their decaying flesh, he shall wash his garments, and he shall bathe in water, and he shall be unclean until evening. 41 And every crawling thing which crawls upon the earth, [2is an abomination 1this] to you, you shall not eat. 42 And all going upon the belly, and all going upon fours always, which is numerous in feet among all the crawling things crawling upon the earth -- you shall not eat it, for [2an abomination 3to you 1it is]. 43 And no way shall you abhor your souls among all the crawling things crawling upon the earth, and you shall not be defiled by these, and [2not 4unclean 1you shall 3be] by these. 44 For I am the  lord your God. And you shall be sanctified, and you shall be holy. For [5holy 4am 1I 2the  lord 3your God]. And you shall not defile your souls among all the crawling things moving upon the earth. 45 For I am the  lord, the one leading you from out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. And you shall be holy, for [4holy 3am 1I 2the  lord]. 46 This is the law for the animals, and the winged creatures, and all life moving in the water, and all life crawling upon the earth; 47 to distinguish between the unclean and between the clean; and between the ones bringing forth alive of the ones being eaten, and between the ones bringing forth alive the ones not being eaten.
