Clean and Unclean Animals
(Leviticus 11:1–47; Acts 10:9–16)

1Ye 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. 2For 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.

3Thou shalt eate no maner of abhomination. 4These are the beastes which ye shall eate of, Oxen, Sheepe, and Goates: 5Roe, Bucke, and Bugle, wilde Goate, Unicorne, wylde Oxen and Camoise, 6And all beastes that cleaue the hoofe, and cleaueth the clift into two clawes, and chewe the cud, them ye shall eate. 7Neuerthelesse, 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. 8And 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.

9These ye shall eate of all that are in the waters: All that haue finnes and scales shall ye eate: 10And whatsoeuer hath not finnes and scales, of that ye may not eate, but it is vncleane vnto you.

11Of all cleane byrdes ye shall eate. 12But these are they of whiche ye shall not eate: the Egle, the Goshauke, and the Ospray. 13The Glede, the Kite, and the Uulture after their kinde. 14And all kinde of Rauens. 15The Estritch, the Nightcrowe, the Cockowe, and the Sparowehauke after their kinde. 16The litle Owle, the great Owle, nor the Redshanke. 17The Pellicane, the Swanne, nor the Cormorant. 18The Storke, the Heron in his kinde, the Lapwing, the Backe. 19And let euery creeping thing that fleeth, be vncleane vnto you, and not be eaten of. 20But of all cleane foules ye may eate.

21Ye 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.

Giving Tithes
(Leviticus 27:30–34; Deuteronomy 26:1–15; Nehemiah 13:10–14)

22Thou shalt tythe all the increase of thy seede, that the fielde bringeth foorth yere by yere. 23And 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. 24If 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: 25Then 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, 26And 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. 27And the Leuite that is within thy gates, shalt thou not forsake, for he hath neither part nor inheritaunce with thee.

28At 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. 29And 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.
