What beasts may,
Leviticus 11:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses and Aaron and sayde vnto them: Leviticus 11:2 speake vnto the children of Israel, & saye these are the beastes whych ye shall eate, amonge all the catell that are on the earth: Leviticus 11:3 whatsoeuer parteth the hoofe, and deuydeth it into two clawes, and chaweth cud amonge the beastes, that shall ye eate.
and what may not be eaten.
Leviticus 11:4 Neuerthelesse, these shall ye not eate, of them that chewe cud, & deuydeth the hoofes: as is the camell, whych chaweth cud, but he deuydeth not the hoofe, therfore is he vncleane vnto you, Leviticus 11:5 euen so the conye, whych chaweth the cud but deuydeth not the hoofe: He is vncleane to you. Leviticus 11:6 And the hare though he chawe þe cud, yet because he deuideth not the hoofe, he is therfore vncleane to you. Leviticus 11:7 And agayne, the swyne, though he deuyde the hoffe in to two clawes, yet he chaweth not the cud. He is vncleane to you. Leviticus 11:8 Of theyr fleshe shall ye not eate, & theyr carkasses shall ye not touche, but let them be vncleane to you.
Leviticus 11:9 These shall ye eate of all that are in the waters: whatsoeuer hath synnes and skales in the waters, sees and ryuers, that shall ye eate. Leviticus 11:10 And all that haue not fynnes and skales in the see and ryuers, of all that moue and lyue in the waters, let them be abhominacyon vnto you: Leviticus 11:11 Ye shall not eate of theyr flesh, but abhorre theyr carkases. Leviticus 11:12 Let all that haue no fynnes nor scales in the waters, be abhomynable vnto you.
Leviticus 11:13 These are they whych ye shall abhorre amonge the foules, and that ought not to be eaten, for they are an abhomynacyon. The egle, the goshauke, & the cormoraunte, Leviticus 11:14 the vultur and the kyte after hys kynde, Leviticus 11:15 and all rauens after theyr kynde, Leviticus 11:16 the estrych, the nyghtcrowe, the coockowe, and the owle after hys kynde, Leviticus 11:17 the falcon, the storcke, the great oule, Leviticus 11:18 the backe, the pellycane, the pye, Leviticus 11:19 the heron, the Iaye after his kynde, the lapwynge: and the swalowe. Leviticus 11:20 Let all foules that crepe & goo vpon all foure, be an abominacyon vnto you. Leviticus 11:21 Yet these maye ye eate, of euery crepynge thynge that hath wynges and goo apon foure fete: euen those that haue knees aboue vpon theyr fete, to lepe wyth all vpon the erthe, Leviticus 11:22 euen these of them ye maye eate the. Arbe after hys kynde: the Selaam after hys kynde: the Hargol after hys kynde, and the Hagab after hys kynde. Leviticus 11:23 All other foules that moue and haue foure fete, shalbe abhominacyon vnto you. Leviticus 11:24 In soche ye be vncleane, and whosoeuer toucheth the carkas of them, shalbe vncleane vnto the euen: Leviticus 11:25 and whosoeuer bereth the carkasse of them, shall washe hys clothes, and be vncleane vntyll euen. Leviticus 11:26 And euery beast that hath hoofe and deuydeth it not into two clawes, ner chaweth cud, suche are vnclene vnto you: euery one þt toucheth them, shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 11:27 And what soeuer goeth vpon hys handes amonge all maner beastes that goo on all foure fete, such are vnclene vnto you: & who so doth touche theyr carkasse shalbe vnclene vntyll the euen. Leviticus 11:28 And he that beareth the carkasse of them, shall wasshe hys clothes & be vncleane vntyll the euen, for soche are vncleane vnto you.
The creeping things which are unclean.
Leviticus 11:29 And let these also be vncleane to you, amonge the thynges that crepe vpon the erth, the weasell, and the mouse, & the toade, after theyr kynde, Leviticus 11:30 the hedgehogge, the stellio, the lacerte, the snayle, and the molle: Leviticus 11:31 these are vncleane to you amonge all that crepe: whosoeuer doth touche them when they be dead, shalbe vncleane vntyll the euen. Leviticus 11:32 And whatsoeuer any of the dead carkasses of them doth fall vpon, shalbe vncleane: whether it be vessell of wodd, or rayment, or skynne, or bagge, or what soeuer vessell it be þt any worke is wroughte in. And it must be plunged in the water, & it shall be vncleane vntyll the euen, and so shall it be clensed. Leviticus 11:33 All maner of erthen vessell wherinto any of them falleth, shalbe vncleane, wyth all þt ther in is: and it shall be broken. Leviticus 11:34 All maner meate also that is vsed to be eaten yf any soche water come vpon it, it shalbe vncleane. And all maner dryncke that is vsed to be droncke in all maner soche vessels, shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 11:35 And euery thynge that theyr carcase falleth vpon, shalbe vncleane: Whether it be ouen or kettell, let it be broken. For they are vncleane, and shalbe vncleane vnto you: Leviticus 11:36 Neuerthelater, yet the fountaynes and welles & collection of waters shalbe cleane still. And whoso toucheth theyr carkasse, shall be vncleane. Leviticus 11:37 If the dead carkasse of any soche fall vpon any seed vsed to sowe, it shall yet be cleane styll: Leviticus 11:38 but and yf any water be powred vpon the seed, & a deed carkesse fall theron, it shalbe vncleane vnto you. Leviticus 11:39 If any beast of whych ye maye eate, dye and any man touche the dead carkasse therof, he shalbe vncleane vntyll the euen. Leviticus 11:40 He that eateth of the dead carkasse of it, shall wasshe hys clothes and be vncleane vntyll the euen. And he also that beareth the carkasse of it, shall wasshe his clothes, and be vncleane vntyll euen. Leviticus 11:41 Let euery crepinge thynge that crepeth vpon the erth be an abhominacyon, and not be eaten. Leviticus 11:42 Whatsoeuer goeth vpon the brest, and whatsoeuer goeth vpon foure, or that hath moo fete amonge all crepynge thynges that crepe vpon the erth, of that se ye eate not for they are abhomynable. Leviticus 11:43 Ye shall not make youre soules abhominable wyth nothing that crepeth, nether make your selues vncleane wyth them: that ye shulde be defyled therby. Leviticus 11:44 For I am the Lorde youre God. Be sanctifyed therfore, and ye shall be holy for I am holy: and ye shall not defyle youre soules wyth any maner of crepynge thynge, that crepeth vpon the erth. Leviticus 11:45 For I am the Lorde, that brought you out of the lande of Egypt, to be youre God: ye shall be holy therfore, for I am holy. Leviticus 11:46 Thys is the lawe of beastes and foules & of euery lyuynge creature that moueth in þe waters, and of euery creature that crepeth vpon the erth, Leviticus 11:47 that there maye be a difference betwene the vncleane & clene, and betwene the beaste that maye be eaten, & the beaste that ought not to be eaten.
