Daniel 1:1-21

1 ¶ In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came unto Jerusalem and besieged it. 2 And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand with part of the vessels of the house of God which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god, and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god. 3 And the king spoke unto Ashpenaz the prince of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the sons of Israel of the royal lineage of the princes, 4 young men in whom there was no blemish whatsoever but who were good looking and taught in all wisdom and wise in knowledge and of good understanding, and that had strength in them to stand in the king’s palace, that they might be taught the letters and speech of the Chaldeans. 5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s food and of the wine which he drank, so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king. 6 Now among these of the sons of Judah were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: 7 unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego. 8 ¶ And Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s food, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. 9 (And God brought Daniel into grace and mercy with the prince of the eunuchs.) 10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who has appointed your food and your drink; for when he shall see your faces more downcast than the other young men who are like unto you, then ye shall condemn my head before the king. 11 Then Daniel said to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, 12 Prove, now, with thy slaves ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink. 13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenances of the young men that eat of the portion of the king’s food; and as thou seest, deal with thy slaves. 14 So he consented to them in this matter and proved them ten days. 15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than the young men who ate the portion of the king’s food. 16 Thus Melzar took the portion of their food and the wine that they should drink and gave them vegetables. 17 ¶ And unto these four young men, God gave them knowledge and intelligence in all letters and science; furthermore Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. 18 Now at the end of the days after which the king had said he should bring them in, the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. 19 And the king communed with them, and none among them all was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah; and therefore they stood before the king. 20 And in all matters of wisdom and intelligence, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm. 21 And Daniel continued even unto the first year of King Cyrus.

1 Timothy 4:2-3

2 that in hypocrisy shall speak lies; having their conscience seared as with a hot iron; 3 they shall forbid to marry and shall command men to abstain from foods, which God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who are faithful and have known the truth.

Mark 7:14-23

14 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you and understand; 15 there is nothing from outside the man that entering into him can defile him, but the things which come out of him, those are what defile the man. 16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear. 17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable. 18 And he said unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not understand that anything from outside that enters into the man cannot defile him? 19 Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly, and the man goes out to the privy and purges all foods. 20 For he had said that it is what comes out of the man that defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, come forth the evil thoughts, the adulteries, the fornications, the murders, 22 the thefts, the covetousness, the wickedness, the deceit, the lasciviousness, the evil eye, the slander, the pride, the unwiseness: 23 all these evil things come out from within and defile the man.

Acts 10:10-14

10 and he became very hungry and would have eaten; but while they made ready, he fell into a rapture of understanding 11 and saw the heaven opened and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners and let down to the earth, 12 in which were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth and wild beasts and reptiles and fowls of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter, kill and eat. 14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

Psalms 104:15

15 and wine that makes glad the heart of man, making his face to shine with oil and bread which sustains man’s heart.

Leviticus 11:1-30

1 ¶ And the LORD spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, 2 Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, These are the animals which ye shall eat among all the animals that are on the earth. 3 Whatever divides the hoof and is clovenfooted and chews the cud, among the animals, that shall you eat. 4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of those that chew the cud or of those that divide the hoof: the camel because it chews the cud but divides not the hoof; it is unclean unto you. 5 And the coney because it chews the cud, but divides not the hoof: it is unclean unto you. 6 And the hare because it chews the cud, but divides not the hoof: it is unclean unto you. 7 And the swine though it divides the hoof and is clovenfooted, yet it chews not the cud: it is unclean to you. 8 Of their flesh ye shall not eat, and their carcase you shall not touch: they are unclean to you. 9 ¶ These shall you eat of all that are in the waters: whatever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, those shall you eat. 10 But all that have not fins and scales in the seas and in the rivers, of any reptile in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you; 11 they shall be an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, and ye shall have their carcasses in abomination. 12 Whatever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. 13 And these ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they shall be an abomination: the eagle, the ossifrage, the ospray, 14 the vulture, and the kite according to his species, 15 every raven according to his species, 16 the owl, the night hawk, the cuckow, and the hawk according to his species; 17 the little owl, the cormorant, the great owl, 18 the swan, the pelican, the gier eagle, 19 the stork, the heron according to her species, the lapwing, and the bat. 20 ¶ Every flying insect that creeps, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. 21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying insect that goes upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap with them upon the earth; 22 these of them ye may eat: the locust according to his species and the bald locust according to his species and the beetle according to his species and the grasshopper according to his species. 23 But all other flying insects, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you. 24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whoever touches their carcase shall be unclean until the evening. 25 And whoever bears any part of their carcase shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening. 26 The carcasses of every animal which divides the hoof and is not clovenfooted, nor chews the cud, are unclean unto you; everyone that touches them shall be unclean. 27 And of all the animals that go on all four, any that walk upon their paws are unclean unto you; whoever touches their carcase shall be unclean until the evening. 28 And he that bears their carcase shall wash his clothes and be unclean until the evening; they are unclean unto you. 29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the animals that creep upon the earth: the weasel and the mouse and the frog according to his species 30 and the ferret and the lizard and the snail and the slug and the mole.

The time shall come to gather all the Gentiles and tongues; and they shall come and see my glory.

1 Corinthians 10:20-21

20 But I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God; and I would not that ye should be participants of demons. 21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; ye cannot be participants of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.

Isaiah 65:3-6

3 a people that provokes me to anger continually to my face; that sacrifices in gardens, and burns incense upon altars of brick; 4 who remain asleep among the graves, and lodge in the deserts, who eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels; 5 who say, Stand by thyself, do not come near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all the day. 6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,

Romans 14:1-23

1 ¶ Bear with the one who is sick in the faith, but not unto doubtful discernment. 2 For one believes that he may eat all things; another, who is sick, eats vegetables. 3 Let not him that eats despise him that does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him that eats; for God has raised him up. 4 Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? By his own master he stands or falls; and if he falls, he shall be made to stand, for God is powerful to make him stand. 5 Also, some make a difference between one day and another; others esteem every day alike. Let each one be fully persuaded in his own soul. 6 He that observes the day, let him observe it unto the Lord; and he that does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He that eats, eats unto the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he that does not eat, unto the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. 7 For none of us live for ourselves, and no one dies for himself. 8 For if we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord; whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ both died and rose and revived: to thus exercise lordship over the dead as well as over the living. 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou belittle thy brother? for we shall all stand before the tribunal of the Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Let us, therefore, not judge one another any more, but judge this rather: that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way. 14 I know and trust in the Lord Jesus that for his sake there is nothing unclean, but to him that esteems any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 But if thy brother is grieved because of thy food, now thou dost not walk in charity. Do not destroy him with thy food, for whom Christ died. 16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of; 17 for the kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he that in these things serves the Christ is well pleasing unto God and approved of men. 19 Let us, therefore, follow after the things which make for peace and the edification of each one to the others. 20 Because of food, do not destroy the work of God. All things indeed are clean, but it is evil for that man who eats with offense. 21 It is good neither to eat flesh nor to drink wine nor do any thing by which thy brother stumbles or is offended or is sick. 22 Thou hast faith; have it to thyself before God. Blessed is he that does not condemn himself with that thing which he allows. 23 And he that makes a difference is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat by faith; and whatsoever is not out of faith is sin.

Isaiah 17:10-11

10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy saving health and hast not been mindful of the Rock of thy strength; therefore thou shalt plant pleasant plants and set it with strange slips: 11 In the day that thou shalt plant them, thou shalt make them to grow and shalt make thy seed to flourish early; but in the day of gathering, the harvest shall flee and shall be desperate sorrow.

1 Corinthians 8:8

8 But food does not make us more acceptable unto God; for neither if we eat are we the better, neither if we eat not are we the worse.

Leviticus 19:19

19 ¶ Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy animal join with a diverse kind for mixtures; thou shalt not sow thy field with mixture, neither shalt thou wear garments of a mixture of different things.

1 Corinthians 15:38-39

38 but God gives it a body as it has pleased him, and to each seed its own body. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

Genesis 1:29

29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every grass bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.

Genesis 9:3

3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; even as the green grass I have given you all things.

1 Corinthians 10:31

31 Whether therefore ye eat or drink or whatever ye do, do everything for the glory of God.
