New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
12 You shall eat it as a barley-cake, baking it in their sight on human dung. 12 Eat the food as you would a barley cake; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel."
13 The Lord said, "Thus shall the people of Israel eat their bread, unclean, among the nations to which I will drive them." 13 The LORD said, "In this way the people of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them."
14 Then I said, "Ah Lord God! I have never defiled myself; from my youth up until now I have never eaten what died of itself or was torn by animals, nor has carrion flesh come into my mouth." 14 Then I said, "Not so, Sovereign LORD! I have never defiled myself. From my youth until now I have never eaten anything found dead or torn by wild animals. No unclean meat has ever entered my mouth."
