Leviticus 11:20-23

Context
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. 11:22 These you may eat from them: 3  the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, the grasshopper of any kind. 11:23 But any other winged swarming thing that has four legs is detestable to you.

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 For entomological remarks on the following list of insects see J. Milgrom, Leviticus (AB), 1:665-66; and J. E. Hartley, Leviticus (WBC), 160-61.
