Leviticus 11:20-21

Clean and Unclean Insects

11:20 “‘Every winged swarming thing that walks on all fours 1  is detestable to you. 11:21 However, this you may eat from all the winged swarming things that walk on all fours, which have jointed legs 2  to hop with on the land.

Leviticus 11:41-42

11:41 Every swarming thing that swarms on the land is detestable; it must not be eaten. 11:42 You must not eat anything that crawls 3  on its belly or anything that walks on all fours or on any number of legs 4  of all the swarming things that swarm on the land, because they are detestable.

1 tn Heb “the one walking on four” (cf. vv. 21-23 and 27-28).

2 tn Heb “which to it are lower legs from above to its feet” (reading the Qere “to it” rather than the Kethib “not”).

3 tn Heb “goes” (KJV, ASV “goeth”); NIV “moves about”; NLT “slither along.” The same Hebrew term is translated “walks” in the following clause.

4 tn Heb “until all multiplying of legs.”
