Ye are the childre of the Lord your God: Ye shall not cut your selues, nor make you any baldnes betwene your eyes for ye dead man.
For thou art an holye people vnto the Lorde thy God, and the Lorde hath chosen thee to be a seuerall people vnto hym selfe, aboue all the nations that are vpon the earth.
Thou shalt eate no maner of abhomination.
These are the beastes which ye shall eate of, Oxen, Sheepe, and Goates:
Roe, Bucke, and Bugle, wilde Goate, Unicorne, wylde Oxen and Camoise,
And all beastes that cleaue the hoofe, and cleaueth the clift into two clawes, and chewe the cud, them ye shall eate.
Neuerthelesse, these ye shall not eate of them that chewe cud & of them that deuide and cleaue the hoofe only, the Camel, the Hare, and the Conie: for they chewe the cud, but deuide not the hoofe: therfore they are vncleane vnto you.
And also the Swine, though he deuide the hoofe, yet he cheweth not cud, therefore is he vncleane vnto you: ye shall not eate of the fleshe of suche, nor touche the dead carkasse of them.
These ye shall eate of all that are in the waters: All that haue finnes and scales shall ye eate:
And whatsoeuer hath not finnes and scales, of that ye may not eate, but it is vncleane vnto you.
Of all cleane byrdes ye shall eate.
But these are they of whiche ye shall not eate: the Egle, the Goshauke, and the Ospray.
The Glede, the Kite, and the Uulture after their kinde.
And all kinde of Rauens.
The Estritch, the Nightcrowe, the Cockowe, and the Sparowehauke after their kinde.
The litle Owle, the great Owle, nor the Redshanke.
The Pellicane, the Swanne, nor the Cormorant.
The Storke, the Heron in his kinde, the Lapwing, the Backe.
And let euery creeping thing that fleeth, be vncleane vnto you, and not be eaten of.
But of all cleane foules ye may eate.
Ye shall eate of nothyng that dyeth alone: But thou shalt geue it vnto the straunger that is in thy citie, that he eate it, or thou mayest sell it vnto a straunger: For thou art an holy people vnto the Lorde thy God.
Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mothers milke.
Thou shalt tythe all the increase of thy seede, that the fielde bringeth foorth yere by yere.
And thou shalt eate before the Lorde thy God, in the place whiche he hath chosen & where he hath put his name, the tithe of thy corne, and of thy wine, and of thyne oyle, and the first borne of thy kine, and of thy sheepe: that thou mayest learne to feare the Lorde thy God alwayes.
If the way be to long for thee, so that thou art not able to carie it, and if the place be farre from thee, whiche the Lorde thy God hath chosen to set his name there, and the Lorde thy God hath blessed thee:
Then shalt thou make it in money, and take the money in thine hande, and go vnto the place which the Lorde thy God shall chose,
And thou shalt bestowe that money for whatsoeuer thy soule lusteth after, for oxen and sheepe, wine and strong drinke, and for whatsoeuer thy soule desireth: and thou shalt eate there before the Lorde thy God, and be merie, both thou and thyne housholde.
And the Leuite that is within thy gates, shalt thou not forsake, for he hath neither part nor inheritaunce with thee.
At the ende of three yeres thou shalt bryng foorth all the tythes of thyne encrease the same yere, and lay it vp within thyne owne gates.
And the Leuite whiche hath no part nor inheritaunce with thee, shal come, and the straunger, the fatherlesse, & the widowe whiche are within thy gates shall eate and be filled, that the Lorde thy God may blesse thee in al ye workes of thyne hande whiche thou doest.
