11:21 However, this you may eat from all the winged swarming things that walk on all fours, which have jointed legs 1 to hop with on the land. 11:22 These you may eat from them: 2 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.
11:27 All that walk on their paws among all the creatures that walk on all fours 3 are unclean to you. Anyone who touches their carcass will be unclean until the evening, 11:28 and the one who carries their carcass must wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening; they are unclean to you.
