Leviticus 11:26-28

Context
Inedible Land Quadrupeds

11:26 “‘All 1  animals that divide the hoof but it is not completely split in two 2  and do not chew the cud 3  are unclean to you; anyone who touches them becomes unclean. 4  11:27 All that walk on their paws among all the creatures that walk on all fours 5  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.

1 tn Heb “to all” (cf. the note on v. 24). This and the following verses develop more fully the categories of uncleanness set forth in principle in vv. 24-25.

2 tn Heb “divides hoof and cleft it does not cleave”; KJV “divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted”; NLT “divided but unsplit hooves.”

3 tn See the note on Lev 11:3.

4 sn Compare the regulations in Lev 11:2-8.

5 tn Heb “the one walking on four.” Compare Lev 11:20-23.
