Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 11:4


11:4 The camel - An usual food in Arabia, but yielding bad nourishment. Divideth not the hoof - So as to have his foot cloven in two, which being expressed, #Lev 11:3|, is here to be understood. Otherwise the camel's hoof is divided, but it is but a small and imperfect division.
