1 Ye the sons of Jehovah your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, and ye shall not put baldness between your eyes for the dead. 2 For thou a holy people to Jehovah thy God, and Jehovah chose in thee to be to him for a people of acquisition above all people which are upon the face of the earth.
3 Thou shalt not eat any abomination. 4 These the cattle which thou shalt eat: the ox, the sheep of the lambs, and the sheep of the goats, 5 The stag, and the roe, and the fallow-deer, and the roe-buck, and the antelope, and the mountain goat, and the gazelle.
6 And an cattle cleaving the hoof and dividing the cleft into two hoofs, bringing up rumination among the cattle, ye shall eat it. 7 But this ye shall not eat, from those bringing up rumination, or from those cleaving the hoof of the cleft: the camel and the hare, and the coney; for they bringing up rumination and cleaving not the hoofs; they are unclean to you. 8 And the swine, because it cleaves the hoof, and not ruminating, it is unclean to you: from their flesh ye shall not eat, and upon their carcass ye shall not touch.
9 This shall ye eat from all which is in the waters: all which to it are fins and scales, ye shall eat: 10 And every thing which to it are not fins and scales, ye shall not eat; it is unclean to you. 11 All clean birds ye shall eat 12 And this which ye shall not eat from them: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the sea eagle, 13 And the vulture, and the kite, and the falcon according to its kind, 14 And every raven according to his kind, 15 And the daughter of the ostrich, and the night-hawk, and the sea-gull, and the hawk after his kind, 16 The cormorant, and the ibis and the heron, 17 And the pelican, and the carrion vulture, and the gannet, 18 And the stork, and the sand-piper, according to her kind; the hoopoe and the bat
19 And every creeping thing flying it is unclean to you; they shall not be eaten. 20 Every clean flying thing ye shall eat
21 Ye shall not eat any carcass: to the stranger that is in thy gates ye shall give it, and he shall eat it; or sell it to a foreigner: for thou a holy people to Jehovah thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in his mother's milk.
22 Taking the tenth, thou shalt take the tenth of all thy produce of thy used of the field bringing forth year by year 23 And eat before Jehovah thy God in the place which he shall choose to cause his name to dwell there, the tenth of thy grain, thy new wine, and thy new oil, and first-born of thy cattle and thy sheep, so that thou shalt learn to fear Jehovah thy God all the days. 24 And when the way shall be enlarged too much for thee that thou shalt not be able to lift it up; when the place shall be far off from thee which Jehovah thy God shall choose to put his name there, when Jehovah thy God shall bless thee: 25 And give it in silver, and bind up the silver in thy hand, and go to the place which Jehovah thy God shall choose in it 26 And give the silver for all which thy soul shall desire, in cattle and in sheep, and in wine, and in strong drink, and in all thy soul shall ask thee: and eat there before Jehovah thy God, and rejoice, thou, and thine house. 27 And the Levite that is in thy gates thou shalt not forsake him; for to him no portion and inheritance with thee.
28 From the end of three years thou shalt bring all the tenth of thy produce in that year, and place thou it in thy gates: 29 And the Levite came (because no portion and inheritance to him with thee) and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow which is in thy gates, and ate and were satisfied; so that Jehovah thy God shall bless thee in all the work of thy hand which thou shalt do.
