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.
