16And the ostrich, and the nighthawk, and the sea gull, and the hawk after its kind,
17And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
18And the white owl, and the pelican, and the carrion vulture,
19And the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.
20All winged insects that creep, going upon all fours, shall be an abomination unto you.
21Yet these may you eat of every winged insect that goes upon all fours, which have legs above their feet, to leap with upon the earth;
22Even these of them you may eat; the locust after its kind, and the bald locust after its kind, and the cricket after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind.
23But all other winged insects, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
24And for these you shall be unclean: whosoever touches the carcass of them shall be unclean until the evening.
25And whosoever bears any part of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening.
26The carcasses of every animal which divides the hoof, and is not cloven footed, nor chews the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that touches them shall be unclean.
27And whatsoever goes upon its paws, among all manner of animals that go on all fours, those are unclean unto you: whoever touches their carcass shall be unclean until the evening.
28And he that bears the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: they are unclean unto you.
29These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the great lizard after its kind,
30And the gecko, and the monitor lizard, and the wall lizard, and the sand lizard, and the chameleon.
31These are unclean to you among all that
creep: whosoever does touch them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until the evening.
32And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, does fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or clothing, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the evening; so it shall be cleansed.
33And every earthen vessel, into which any of them falls, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and you shall break it.
34Of all food which may be eaten, that on which such water comes shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.
35And everything whereupon any part of their carcass falls shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken: for they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.
36Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which touches their carcass shall be unclean.
37And if any part of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.
38But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcass fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
39And if any animal, of which you may eat, dies; he that touches the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the evening.
40And he that eats of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: he also that bears the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening.
41And every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
42Whatsoever goes upon the belly, and whatsoever goes upon all fours, or whatsoever has many feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
43You shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them, that you should be defiled by them.
44For I am the LORD your God: you shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
45For I am the LORD that brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
46This is the law of the animals, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps upon the earth:
47To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten.
