Chapter 14 of the Book Of Deuteronomy
Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at: Deuteronomy 14:1-10
1 Be ye children of the Lord your God: you shall not cut yourselves, no, make any baldness for the dead; 2 Because thou art a holy people to the Lord thy God: and he chose thee to be his peculiar people of all nations that are upon the earth. 3 Eat not the things that are unclean. 4 These are the beasts that you shall eat, the ox, and the sheep, and the goat, 5 The hart and the roe, the buffle, the chamois, the pygarg, the wild goat, the camelopardalus.
3 "Unclean"... See the annotations on Lev. 11.
6 Every beast that divideth the hoof in two parts, and cheweth the cud, you shall eat. 7 But of them that chew the cud, but divide not the hoof, you shall not eat, such as the camel, the hare, and the cherogril: because they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof, they shall be unclean to you. 8 The swine also, because it divideth the hoof, but cheweth not the cud, shall be unclean, their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch. 9 These shall you eat of all that abide in the waters: All that have fins and scales, you shall eat. 10 Such as are without fins and scales, you shall not eat, because they are unclean.
