11:24 “‘By these 1 you defile yourselves; anyone who touches their carcass will be unclean until the evening, 11:25 and anyone who carries their carcass must wash his clothes and will be unclean until the evening.
11:26 “‘All 2 animals that divide the hoof but it is not completely split in two 3 and do not chew the cud 4 are unclean to you; anyone who touches them becomes unclean. 5 11:27 All that walk on their paws among all the creatures that walk on all fours 6 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.
11:29 “‘Now this is what is unclean to you among the swarming things that swarm on the land: 7 the rat, the mouse, the large lizard of any kind, 11:30 the Mediterranean gecko, the spotted lizard, the wall gecko, the skink, and the chameleon. 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 8 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 9 and will be unclean until the evening. Then it will become clean. 11:33 As for any clay vessel they fall into, 10 everything in it 11 will become unclean and you must break it. 11:34 Any food that may be eaten which becomes soaked with water 12 will become unclean. Anything drinkable 13 in any such vessel will become unclean. 14 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 15 to you. 11:36 However, a spring or a cistern which collects water 16 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, 17 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.
11:39 “‘Now if an animal 18 that you may eat dies, 19 whoever touches its carcass will be unclean until the evening. 11:40 One who eats from its carcass must wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening, and whoever carries its carcass must wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening.
