Leviticus 11:46

Leviticus 11:46

This [is] the law of the beasts
Clean and unclean, what were to be eaten, and what not,

and of the fowl;
( Leviticus 11:2-8 ) the unclean ones, which are particularly mentioned that they might be avoided, all others excepting them being allowed, ( Leviticus 11:13-19 ) :

and of every living creature that moveth in the waters;
all sorts of fish in the sea, rivers, ponds, and pools, such as have fins and scales, these were to be eaten, but, if they had neither, were forbidden, ( Leviticus 11:9-12 ) :

and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth;
eight of which are mentioned particularly, which, when dead, defiled by touching; and all others are forbidden to be eaten, ( Leviticus 11:29-43 ) together with such creeping things that fly, excepting those that had legs above their feet to leap with, ( Leviticus 11:20-23 ) . This is a recapitulation of the several laws respecting them, though not in the exact order in which they are delivered in this chapter.
