You may eat any animal that has completely split hooves and chews the cud.

Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
Darby Bible Translation
Whatever hath cloven hoofs, and feet quite split open, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts that shall ye eat.
World English Bible

Leviticus 11:3 Parallel

And this branch is to be joined with the former, both properties being necessary for the allowed beasts. But the reason hereof must be resolved into the will of the law - giver; though interpreters guess that God would hereby signify their duties, by the first, that of discerning between good and evil; and by the latter, that duty of recalling God's word to our minds and meditating upon it.

The Destruction of Jerusalem
"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. "Of all the land animals, these are the ones you may use for food.
You may not, however, eat the following animals that have split hooves or that chew the cud, but not both. The camel chews the cud but does not have split hooves, so it is ceremonially unclean for you.
The hyrax chews the cud but does not have split hooves, so it is unclean.
The hare chews the cud but does not have split hooves, so it is unclean.
The pig has evenly split hooves but does not chew the cud, so it is unclean.
"Any animal that has split hooves that are not evenly divided or that does not chew the cud is unclean for you. If you touch the carcass of such an animal, you will be defiled.
"You may eat any animal that has completely split hooves and chews the cud,
