Deuteronomy 14:6 (King James Version)
And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat.
- Psalms 1:1 Psalms 1:2 ; Proverbs 18:1 ; 2 Corinthians 6:17
- On this verse remark, that the clean beast must both chew the cud and part the hoof: two distinct characteristics, or general signs, by which the possibility of error arising from the misinterpretation of names is obviated. When God directs, his commands are not of doubtful interpretation.
