14 Ye are athe children of the Lord your God: bye shall not cut yourselves, nor cmake any baldness between your eyes for the dead. 2 dFor thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be ea peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
3 fThou shalt not eat any abominable thing. 4 gThese are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat, 5 hThe hart, and hthe roebuck, and hthe fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the ||pygarg, and ithe wild ox, and the chamois. 6 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat. 7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you. 8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, jnor touch their dead carcase.
11 Of all clean birds ye shall eat. 12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, 13 And kthe glede, and the kite, and lthe vulture after his kind, 14 And every raven after his kind, 15 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, 16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan, 17 And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant, 18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. 19 And levery creeping thing that flieth is unclean unto you: mthey shall not be eaten. 20 But of all clean fowls ye may eat.
21 nYe shall not eat of any thing that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: ofor thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God. pThou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk. 22 qThou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. 23 rAnd thou shalt eat before the Lord thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and sthe firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the Lord thy God always. 24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or tif the place be too far from thee, which the Lord thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the Lord thy God hath blessed thee: 25 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and ubind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the Lord thy God shall choose: 26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul †desireth: and wthou shalt eat there before the Lord thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household, 27 And xthe Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for yhe hath no part nor inheritance with thee. 28 zAt the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates: 29 zAnd the Levite, (because yhe hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that athe Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.
