32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.
35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.
42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
44 For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Matthew Henry's Leviticus Chapter 11 Bible commentary...
What animals were clean and unclean.
- These laws seem to have been intended, 1. As a test of the people's obedience, as Adam was forbidden to eat of the tree of knowledge; and to teach them self-denial, and the government of their appetites. 2. To keep the Israelites distinct from other nations. Many also of these forbidden animals were objects of superstition and idolatry to the heathen. 3. The people were taught to make distinctions between the holy and unholy in their companions and intimate connexions. 4. The law forbad, not only the eating of the unclean beasts, but the touching of them. Those who would be kept from any sin, must be careful to avoid all temptations to it, or coming near it. The exceptions are very minute, and all were designed to call forth constant care and exactness in their obedience; and to teach us to obey. Whilst we enjoy our Christian liberty, and are free from such burdensome observances, we must be careful not to abuse our liberty. For the Lord hath redeemed and called his people, that they may be holy, even as he is holy. We must come out, and be separate from the world; we must leave the company of the ungodly, and all needless connexions with those who are dead in sin; we must be zealous of good works devoted followers of God, and companions of his people.

for those who claim on keeping the commandments, do you offer burnt offerings and sin offerings and the like? all these laws came to an end once Jesus came and introduced grace

The Pelican? Jackdor, The Hebrew translator of the AV came up with "pelican" because the verb translates as vomit or reject for Ha Ka'at and this was considered as a feature of this bird. Leviticus 11:18. At least NIV keeps to "desert owl" for Deuteronomy 14:17 and Psalm 102:6 whereas NKJ Leviticus 11:18 and Deteronomy 14:17 the jackdaw appears for the same Hebrew word, the Pelican!. From Psalm 102:6 the "desert owl" flying through the ruins may be the right answer? Where does the "white" of white owl come from? The "swan" but where does the same word get its "mole" in the AV Deteronomy 14:17 I wonder. Most calamitous of all what is a gier eagle. I cannot find the word "gier" in the Oxford Dictionary!

I do know this, those with a Jewish bloodline are more susceptible to colon cancer if they do not adhere to the dietary laws, whether they are faithful or atheist. A family member of mine was told this before her colonoscopy. Actually, countless cancers can be traced to impure diet. Christ openly said he did not come to do away with the Old Testament, but to fulfil it. I think something has been vastly misinterpreted. How are we to know what the original text said? Christ would never override the Words of the Father.

16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
God bless you.

In spite of clear cut instructions in US and all of over East Asia, people salivate at pork products, snakes and other unclean things. Though consciously one should aspire not to eat these unclean things. I have this question about a verse in the Bible wherein Jesus says It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth.” and explains this verse below “Don’t you understand yet?” Jesus asked. 17 “Anything you eat passes through the stomach and then goes into the sewer. 18 But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you. 19 For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. These are what defile you. Eating with unwashed hands will never defile you.” now note Lord Jesus has mentioned eating with unwashed hands will never defile you ( does it included what the unclean animals too or just the clean animals eaten with unwashed hands)?

Rhonda, Your question in Leviticus 11 about Catfish.
Catfish has no scales and stay close to the bottom
of what water their in, eat any decaded flesh they might run across. Catfish should not be eaten. I know thats not what lots of people likes to hear.
Please keep reading the KJV bible and study God's word.
