11:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, These [are] the beasts which ya’ll shall eat among all the beasts that [are] on the earth.
11:3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, [and] chews the cud, among the beasts, that shall ya’ll eat.

11:31 These [are] unclean to you among all that creep whom ever does touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
11:32 And upon what ever [any] of them, when they are dead, does fall, it shall be unclean ; whether [it be] any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, what ever vessel [it be], wherein [any] work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even ; so it shall be cleansed.

11:43 ya’ll shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall ya’ll make yourselves unclean with them, that ya’ll should be defiled thereby.
11:44 For I [am] the LORD your God ya’ll shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ya’ll shall be holy ; for I [am] holy neither shall ya’ll defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
11:45 For I [am] the LORD that brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God ya’ll shall therefore be holy, for I [am] holy.
11:46 This [is] the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creeps upon the earth
11:47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.
