Clean and Unclean Food

14:3-20pp -- Lev 11:1-23

1 You are the children1 of the LORD your God. Do not cut yourselves or shave the front of your heads for the dead, 2 for you are a people holy2 to the LORD your God.3 Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession.4 3 Do not eat any detestable thing.5 4 These are the animals you may eat:6 the ox, the sheep, the goat,7 5 the deer,8 the gazelle, the roe deer, the wild goat,9 the ibex, the antelope and the mountain sheep.a 6 You may eat any animal that has a split hoof divided in two and that chews the cud. 7 However, of those that chew the cud or that have a split hoof completely divided you may not eat the camel, the rabbit or the coney.b Although they chew the cud, they do not have a split hoof; they are ceremonially unclean for you.
