44 For I am the Lord your rGod. You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and syou shall be holy; for I am holy. Neither shall you defile yourselves with any creeping thing that creeps on the earth. 45 tFor I am the Lord who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. uYou shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
46 ‘This is the law 2of the animals and the birds and every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, 47 vto distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten.’ ”
