Coverdale(i) 1 Ye are the children of the LORDE youre God, Cut not youre selues therfore, & make you no baldnesse betwene youre eyes ouer eny deed. 2 For thou art an holy people vnto the LORDE thy God. And the LORDE hath chosen the to be his awne peculier people, from amoge all the nacions that are vpon the earth. 3 Thou shalt eate no abhominacion. 4 These are the beestes which ye shal eate: Oxen, shepe, Goates, 5 Hert, Roo, Bugle, wylde goate, Unicorne, Origen, and Camelion. 6 And euery beest that deuydeth his clawe, & cheweth cudd, shal ye eate. 7 Neuertheles these shal ye not eate of them that chewe cudd, and deuyde not the hoffe in to two clawes: The Camell, the hayre, & the conye, for though they chewe cudd, yet deuyde they not the hoffe, therfore shal they be vncleane vnto you. 8 The swyne, though he deuyde the hoffe, yet cheweth he not cudd, he shall be vncleane vnto you: ye shall not eate of the flesh of the, and their deed carcases shal ye not touche. 9 This is it that ye shall eate of all that is in the waters: All that hath fynnes and scales, shall ye eate. 10 But what so euer hath no fynnes ner scales, that shal ye not eate, for it is vncleane vnto you. 11 Eate of all cleane foules. 12 But these are they, wherof ye shal not eate: The Aegle, ye Goshauke, the Cormoraunte, 13 the Ixion, the Vultur, the Kyte with his kynde, 14 & all Rauens in their kynde, 15 the Estriche, the Night crowe, the Cocow, the Sparow hauke with his kynde, 16 the litle Oule, the greate Oule, ye Backe, 17 the Bytture, the Swanne, the Pellicane, the Pye, 18 the Storke, the Heron, the Iaye wt his kynde, the Lapwynge, ye Swalowe: 19 And all foules yt crepe, shal be vncleane vnto you, and ye shal not eate them. 20 (Omitted Text) 21 Ye shall eate of nothinge yt dyeth alone: thou mayest geue it vnto ye straunger within yi gate, that he eate it, or sell it to a straunger. For thou art an holy people vnto ye LORDE thy God. Thou shalt not seeth a kydd, whyle it yet sucketh his mother. 22 Thou shalt separate out the tythe all the increase of thy sede, yt cometh out of yi felde euery yeare: 23 & shalt eate it before ye LORDE yi God ( in ye place which He choseth, yt his name maye dwell there) namely of ye tythes of thy corne, of thy wyne, of thy oyle, & the first borne of thine oxen, and of thy shepe, yt thou mayest lerne to feare the LORDE thy God, all thy life longe. 24 But yf the waye be to moch for ye, and the place, which ye LORDE thy God hath chosen to set his name there, be to farre from the: & thou canst not cary it that ye LORDE thy God hath blessed the withall, 25 Then geue it for money, & take ye money in thyne hande, and go vnto the place which the LORDE thy God hath chosen, 26 and geue the money for all that thy soule desyreth, whether it be oxe, shepe, wyne, stronge drynke, or for what so euer thy soule desyreth, and eate there before the LORDE thy God, and be mery, thou and thine housholde, 27 and ye Leuite that is within thy gates. Thou shalt not forsake him, for he hath no porcion nor inheritaunce with the. 28 In the thirde yeare shalt thou brynge forth all the tithes of thine increase of the same yeare, and shalt laye it within thy gates. 29 The shal the Leuite (which hath no porcion ner enheritaunce with the) and ye straunger, and the fatherlesse, and the wedowe, which are within thy gates, come and eate, and fyll them selues, that the LORDE thy God maye blesse the in all the workes of yi handes which thou doest.
