What beasts may,
Leviticus 11:1 And the LORD spake vnto Moses, and to Aaron, saying vnto them, Leviticus 11:2 Speake vnto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shal eat among all the beasts that [are] on the earth: Leviticus 11:3 Whatsoever parteth the hoofe, and is clouen footed, & cheweth cud among the beasts, that shall ye eate.
and what may not be eaten.
Leviticus 11:4 Neuerthelesse, these shall ye not eate, of them that chewe the cud, or of them that diuide the hoofe: [as] the camel, because hee cheweth the cud, but diuideth not the hoofe, he is vncleane vnto you. Leviticus 11:5 And the conie, because he cheweth the cud, but diuideth not the hoofe, he is vncleane vnto you. Leviticus 11:6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but diuideth not the hoofe, he is vncleane vnto you. Leviticus 11:7 And the swine, though he diuide the hoofe, and be clouen footed, yet hee cheweth not the cud: he is vncleane to you. Leviticus 11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch: they are vncleane to you.
Leviticus 11:9 These shal ye eat, of all that are in the waters: whatsoeuer hath finnes and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the riuers, them shall ye eate. Leviticus 11:10 And all that haue not finnes nor scales in the seas, and in the riuers, of all that moue in the waters, and of any liuing thing which [is] in the waters, they [shalbe] an abomination vnto you: Leviticus 11:11 They shalbe euen an abomination vnto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, but you shall haue their carcases in abomination. Leviticus 11:12 Whatsoeuer hath no finnes nor scales in the waters, that shalbe an abomination vnto you.
Leviticus 11:13 And these are they which ye shall haue in abomination among the foules, they shall not be eaten, they [are] an abomination: The Eagle, and the Ossifrage, and the Ospray, Leviticus 11:14 And the Uulture, and the Kite, after his kinde: Leviticus 11:15 Euery Rauen after his kinde: Leviticus 11:16 And the Owle, and the nighthauke, & the Cuckow, and the Hawke after his kinde, Leviticus 11:17 And the little Owle, and the Cormorant, and the great Owle, Leviticus 11:18 And the Swanne, and the Pellicane, and the Gier-eagle, Leviticus 11:19 And the Storke, the Heron after her kinde, and the Lapwing, and the Batte. Leviticus 11:20 All foules that creepe, going vpon all foure, shalbe an abomination vnto you. Leviticus 11:21 Yet these may ye eat, of euery flying creeping thing that goeth vpon [all] foure, which haue legges aboue their feet, to leape withall vpon the earth. Leviticus 11:22 [Euen] these of them ye may eate: the Locust, after his kinde, and the Bald-locust after his kinde, and the Beetle after his kinde, and the Grassehopper after his kinde. Leviticus 11:23 But al [other] flying creeping things which haue foure feet, shall be an abomination vnto you. Leviticus 11:24 And for these ye shalbe vncleane: whosoeuer toucheth the carkasse of them, shall be vncleane vntill the euen. Leviticus 11:25 And whosoeuer beareth ought of the carkasse of them, shall wash his clothes, & be vncleane vntill the euen. Leviticus 11:26 [The carkasses] of euery beast which diuideth the hoofe, and is not clouen footed, nor cheweth the cud, are vncleane vnto you: euery one that toucheth them, shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 11:27 And whatsoeuer goeth vpon his pawes, among all maner of beasts, that goe on [all] foure, those [are] vncleane vnto you: who so toucheth their carkasse, shall be vncleane vntill the Euen. Leviticus 11:28 And he that beareth the carkasse of them, shall wash his clothes, and be vncleane vntill the Euen: they are vncleane vnto you.
The creeping things which are unclean.
Leviticus 11:29 These also shalbe vncleane vnto you, among the creeping things that creepe vpon the earth: the Weasell, and the Mouse, and the Tortois, after his kinde, Leviticus 11:30 And the Ferret, and the Cameleon, and the Lyzard, and the Snaile, and the Molle. Leviticus 11:31 These are vncleane to you among all that creepe: whosoeuer doth touch them when they bee dead, shall be vncleane vntill the Euen. Leviticus 11:32 And vpon whatsoeuer any of them, when they are dead, doeth fall, it shalbe vncleane, whether [it be] any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skinne, or sacke, whatsoeuer vessell [it be], wherein any worke is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be vncleane vntill the Euen; so it shalbe cleansed. Leviticus 11:33 And euery earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoeuer [is] in it shall bee vncleane; and yee shall breake it. Leviticus 11:34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which [such] water commeth, shall be vncleane: And all drinke that may be drunkein euery [such] vessell, shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 11:35 And euery thing, whereupon any part of their carkasse falleth, shall be vncleane, [whether it be] ouen, or ranges for pots, they shalbe broken downe: for they are vncleane, and shall be vncleane vnto you. Leviticus 11:36 Neuerthelesse, a fountaine or pit, [wherein] there is plenty of water, shalbe cleane: but that which toucheth their carkasse shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 11:37 And if any part of their carkasse fall vpon any sowing seed which is to be sowen, it shalbe cleane: Leviticus 11:38 But if any water be put vpon the seed, and any part of their carkasse fall thereon, it shalbe vncleane vnto you. Leviticus 11:39 And if any beast of which ye may eat, die, he that toucheth the carkasse thereof, shall be vncleane vntill the Euen. Leviticus 11:40 And hee that eateth of the carkasse of it, shall wash his clothes, and be vncleane vntil the Euen: he also that beareth the carkasse of it, shal wash his clothes, and bee vncleane vntill the Euen. Leviticus 11:41 And euery creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth, shalbe an abomination: it shall not be eaten. Leviticus 11:42 Whatsoeuer goeth vpon the bellie, and whatsoeuer goeth vpon [all] foure, or whatsoeuer hath more feet among all creeping things that creepe vpon the earth, them ye shall not eate, for they are an abomination. Leviticus 11:43 Yee shall not make your selues abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make your selues vncleane with them, that ye should be defiled thereby. Leviticus 11:44 For I am the LORD your God: yee shall therefore sanctifie your selues, and ye shall be holy, for I [am] holy: neither shall ye defile your selues with any maner of creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth. Leviticus 11:45 For I [am] the LORD that bringeth you vp out of the land of Egypt to be your God: ye shal therefore be holy, for I [am] holy. Leviticus 11:46 This [is] the law of the beasts, and of the foule, and of euery liuing creature that moueth in the waters, and of euerie creature that creepeth vpon the earth: Leviticus 11:47 To make a difference betweene the vncleane and the cleane, & betweene the beast that may be eaten, and the beast that may not be eaten.
