Deuteronomy 14


14:1 Ye [are] the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not
 cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the
 dead.
14:2 For thou [art] a holy people to the LORD thy God, and the
 LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people to himself, above
 all the nations that [are] upon the earth.
14:3 Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.
14:4 These [are] the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the
 sheep, and the goat,
14:5 The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow-deer, and the
 wild-goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.
14:6 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the
 cleft into two claws, [and] cheweth the cud among the beasts,
 that ye shall eat.
14:7 Nevertheless, these ye shall not eat, of them that chew the
 cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; the camel, and the
 hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the
 hoof; [therefore] they [are] unclean to you.
14:8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth
 not the cud, [is] unclean to you: ye shall not eat of their
 flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.
14:9 These ye shall eat, of all that [are] in the waters: all
 that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
14:10 And whatever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it
 [is] unclean to you.
14:11 [Of] all clean birds ye shall eat.
14:12 But these [are they] of which ye shall not eat: the eagle,
 and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
14:13 And the glede, and the kite, and the vultur after his
 kind,
14:14 And every raven after his kind,
14:15 And the owl, and the night-hawk, and the cuckow, and the
 hawk after his kind,
14:16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,
14:17 And the pelican, and the gier-eagle, and the cormorant,
14:18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the
 lapwing, and the bat.
14:19 And every creeping animal that flieth [is] unclean to you:
 they shall not be eaten.
14:20 [But of] all clean fowls ye may eat.
14:21 Ye shall not eat [of] any thing that dieth of itself: thou
 shalt give it to the stranger that [is] in thy gates, that he
 may eat it; or thou mayest sell it to an alien: for thou [art]
 a holy people to the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid
 in his mother's milk.
14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that
 the field bringeth forth year by year.
14:23 And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place
 which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy
 corn, of thy wine, and of thy oil, and the firstlings of thy
 herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the
 LORD thy God always.
14:24 And if the way is too long for thee, so that thou art not
 able to carry it; [or] if the place is too far from thee, which
 the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the
 LORD thy God hath blessed thee:
14:25 Then shalt thou turn [it] into money, and bind up the
 money in thy hand, and shalt go to the place which the LORD thy
 God shall choose:
14:26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatever thy soul
 desireth, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong
 drink, or for whatever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat
 there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou,
 and thy household.
14:27 And the Levite that [is] within thy gates, thou shalt not
 forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.
14:28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the
 tithe of thy increase the same year, and shalt lay [it] up
 within thy gates:
14:29 And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance
 with thee) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow,
 who [are] within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be
 satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work
 of thy hand which thou doest.
