Deuteronomy 14:4; Deuteronomy 17:1; Deuteronomy 18:3; Deuteronomy 22:1
"These are the animals which you may eat: the ox, the sheep , the goat,
"You shall not sacrifice to the LORD your God an ox or a sheep which has a blemish or any defect, for that is a detestable thing to the LORD your God.
"Now this shall be the priests' due from the people, from those who offer a sacrifice, either an ox or a sheep, of which they shall give to the priest the shoulder and the two cheeks and the stomach.
"You shall not see your countryman's ox or his sheep straying away, and pay no attention to them; you shall certainly bring them back to your countryman.
