Deuteronomy 14:6

6 Any animal that divides the hoof and has the hoof cleft in two, and chews the cud, among the animals, you may eat.

Deuteronomy 14:6 Meaning and Commentary

Ver. 6-8. And every beast that parted the hoof
In this and the two following verses two general rules are given, by which it might be known what beasts were fit for food and what not; one is if they parted the hoof, and the other if they chewed the cud, such might be eaten; but such that only chewed the cud, but did not divide the hoof, as the camel, hare, and coney, might not be eaten; and so if they divided the hoof, and did not chew the cud, as the swine, they were alike unlawful; (See Gill on Leviticus 11:3), (See Gill on Leviticus 11:4), (See Gill on Leviticus 11:5), (See Gill on Leviticus 11:6), (See Gill on Leviticus 11:7), (See Gill on Leviticus 11:8).

Deuteronomy 14:6 In-Context

4 These are the animals you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat,
5 the deer, the gazelle, the roebuck, the wild goat, the ibex, the antelope, and the mountain-sheep.
6 Any animal that divides the hoof and has the hoof cleft in two, and chews the cud, among the animals, you may eat.
7 Yet of those that chew the cud or have the hoof cleft you shall not eat these: the camel, the hare, and the rock badger, because they chew the cud but do not divide the hoof; they are unclean for you.
8 And the pig, because it divides the hoof but does not chew the cud, is unclean for you. You shall not eat their meat, and you shall not touch their carcasses.
