17:15 “ ‘Any person41 who eats an animal that has died of natural causes42 or an animal torn by beasts, whether a native citizen or a foreigner,43 must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening; then he becomes clean.
tn Heb “And any soul” (נֶפֶשׁ, nefesh).
tn Heb “carcass,” referring to the carcass of an animal that has died on its own, not the carcass of an animal slaughtered for sacrifice or killed by wild beasts. This has been clarified in the translation by supplying the phrase “of natural causes”; cf. NAB “that died of itself”; TEV “that has died a natural death.”
tn Heb “in the native or in the sojourner.”
