Leviticus 17:15

Context
Regulations for Eating Carcasses

17:15 “‘Any person 3  who eats an animal that has died of natural causes 4  or an animal torn by beasts, whether a native citizen or a foreigner, 5  must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening; then he becomes clean.

1 tn Heb “carcass,” referring to the carcass of an animal that has died on its own, not the carcass of an animal slaughtered for sacrifice or killed by wild beasts. This has been clarified in the translation by supplying the phrase “of natural causes”; cf. NAB, TEV “that has died a natural death.”

2 tn Heb “shall be used for any work”; cf. NIV, NLT “may be used for any other purpose.”

3 tn Heb “And any soul” (נֶפֶשׁ, nefesh).

4 tn Heb “carcass,” referring to the carcass of an animal that has died on its own, not the carcass of an animal slaughtered for sacrifice or killed by wild beasts. This has been clarified in the translation by supplying the phrase “of natural causes”; cf. NAB “that died of itself”; TEV “that has died a natural death.”

5 tn Heb “in the native or in the sojourner.”
