Leviticus 11:31-38

Context
11:31 These are the ones that are unclean to you among all the swarming things. Anyone who touches them when they die will be unclean until evening. 11:32 Also, anything they fall on 1  when they die will become unclean – any wood vessel or garment or article of leather or sackcloth. Any such vessel with which work is done must be immersed in water 2  and will be unclean until the evening. Then it will become clean. 11:33 As for any clay vessel they fall into, 3  everything in it 4  will become unclean and you must break it. 11:34 Any food that may be eaten which becomes soaked with water 5  will become unclean. Anything drinkable 6  in any such vessel will become unclean. 7  11:35 Anything their carcass may fall on will become unclean. An oven or small stove must be smashed to pieces; they are unclean, and they will stay unclean 8  to you. 11:36 However, a spring or a cistern which collects water 9  will be clean, but one who touches their carcass will be unclean. 11:37 Now, if such a carcass falls on any sowing seed which is to be sown, 10  it is clean, 11:38 but if water is put on the seed and such a carcass falls on it, it is unclean to you.
