39 If an animal of which you may eat dies, anyone who touches its carcass shall be unclean until the evening. 39 " 'If an animal that you are allowed to eat dies, anyone who touches the carcass will be unclean till evening.
40 Those who eat of its carcass shall wash their clothes and be unclean until the evening; and those who carry the carcass shall wash their clothes and be unclean until the evening. 40 Anyone who eats some of the carcass must wash his clothes, and he will be unclean till evening. Anyone who picks up the carcass must wash his clothes, and he will be unclean till evening.
41 All creatures that swarm upon the earth are detestable; they shall not be eaten. 41 " 'Every creature that moves about on the ground is detestable; it is not to be eaten.
42 Whatever moves on its belly, and whatever moves on all fours, or whatever has many feet, all the creatures that swarm upon the earth, you shall not eat; for they are detestable. 42 You are not to eat any creature that moves about on the ground, whether it moves on its belly or walks on all fours or on many feet; it is detestable.
43 You shall not make yourselves detestable with any creature that swarms; you shall not defile yourselves with them, and so become unclean. 43 Do not defile yourselves by any of these creatures. Do not make yourselves unclean by means of them or be made unclean by them.
44 For I am the Lord your God; sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy. You shall not defile yourselves with any swarming creature that moves on the earth. 44 I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves about on the ground.
45 For I am the Lord who brought you up from the land of Egypt, to be your God; you shall be holy, for I am holy. 45 I am the LORD who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy.
46 This is the law pertaining to land animal and bird and every living creature that moves through the waters and every creature that swarms upon the earth, 46 " 'These are the regulations concerning animals, birds, every living thing that moves in the water and every creature that moves about on the ground.
47 to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the living creature that may be eaten and the living creature that may not be eaten. 47 You must distinguish between the unclean and the clean, between living creatures that may be eaten and those that may not be eaten.' "
