Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
'Likewise, the shaphan, for though it chews cud, it does not divide the hoof, it is unclean to you;

King James Bible
And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
the hyrax, though it chews the cud, does not have hooves--it is unclean for you;
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

the coney Shapha, most probably an animal resembling the rabbit, called by Dr. Shaw, {daman} (probably for ganam) Israel, `Israel's lamb,' and by Bruce, {ashkoko}, which name he imagines is `derived from the singularity of these long herenacious?? hairs, which, like small thorns, grow about his back, and which an Amhara are called {ashok}.' This curious animal abounds in Judea, Palestine, Arabia, and Ethiopia; and is described as being about seventeen inches when sitting. It has no tail; and at first sight gives the idea of a rat. Its colour is grey, mixed with reddish brown; the belly white, the body covered with strong polished hairs, for the most part about two inches in length; the ears round, and not pointed; the feet round, of a soft, pulpy, tender substance; the toes projecting beyond the mails, which are rather broad than sharp, the upper jaw is longer than the other; it lives upon grain, fruit, and roots, and certainly chews the cud; and it does not burrow like the hare and rabbit, but lives in clefts of the rocks.

Psalm 104:18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

Proverbs 30:26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
