22:8 He must not eat an animal that has died of natural causes16 or an animal torn by beasts and thus become unclean by it. I am the Lord.
tn Heb “a 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 has died of itself”; TEV “that has died a natural death.”
