a cleft hoof as of neat cattle (Ex 10:26; Eze 32:13); hence also of the horse, though not cloven (Isa 5:28). The "parting of the hoof" is one of the distinctions between clean and unclean animals (Le 11:3; De 14:7).
Even our livestock must go with us; not a hoof will be left behind because we will take some of them to worship the Lord our God. We will not know what we will use to worship the Lord until we get there."
You may eat any animal with divided hooves and that chews the cud.
But among the ones that chew the cud or have divided hooves, you are not to eat these: the camel, the hare, and the hyrax, though they chew the cud, they do not have hooves- they are unclean for you;
Their arrows are sharpened, and all their bows strung. Their horses' hooves are like flint; their [chariot] wheels are like a whirlwind.
