24 And by these you shall become unclean; whoever touches their carcass shall be unclean until the evening,
25 And whoever carries any part of their carcass shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening.
26 For every beast which has a divided hoof but does not have its hoof split in two or chew the cud is unclean to you; everyone who touches them shall be unclean.
27 And whatever goes on its paws, among all beasts that go on all fours, are unclean to you; whoever touches their carcass shall be unclean until the evening.
28 And the one who carries their carcass shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening; they are unclean to you.
29 And these are unclean to you among the swarming things that swarm on the earth: the weasel and the mouse and the great lizard of every kind,
30 And the gecko and the land crocodile and the lizard and the sand lizard and the chameleon.
31 These are unclean to you among all the swarming things; whoever touches them when they are dead shall be unclean until the evening.
32 And anything on which one of them may fall when they are dead shall be unclean, whether it is any article of wood or clothing or skin or sackcloth; any article which is used for any work must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the evening; then it shall be clean.
33 And any earthen vessel into which any of them falls, whatever is in it shall be unclean, and the vessel you shall break.
34 Any food that could be eaten shall be unclean if water from such a vessel comes upon it, and any liquid that may be drunk shall be unclean if it was in any such vessel.
35 And everything on which part of their carcass falls shall be unclean – an oven or a stove shall be broken in pieces; they are unclean and shall continue to be unclean to you.
36 Nevertheless a spring or a cistern collecting water shall be clean, but whatever touches their carcass shall be unclean.
37 And if any part of their carcass falls on any seed for sowing, which is to be sown, it is clean.
38 But if water is put on the seed, and any part of their carcass fall on it, it is unclean to you.
39 And if any beast which you have for food dies, the one who touches its carcass shall be unclean until the evening.
40 And he who eats some of its carcass shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening; the one who carries its carcass shall also wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening.
41 Now every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth is an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
42 Whatever goes on its stomach and whatever goes on all fours, or whatever has many feet, even all the swarming things that swarm on the earth, you shall not eat them, for they are an abomination.
43 You shall not make yourselves abominable with any swarming thing that swarms, nor shall you make yourselves unclean with them, and so become defiled by them.
44 For I am Jehovah your God. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy. And you shall not defile yourselves with any of the swarming things that move upon the earth.
45 For I am Jehovah, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt to be your God; you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
46 This is the law of the beast and of the bird, and of every living animal that moves in the waters, and of every creature that swarms upon the earth;
47 To make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten.
