Genesis 9:3

3 Every creeping thing which it lives shall be food to you as the green herb. I gave you all things.

Isaiah 1:1-31

1 The vision of Isaiah son of Amos which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2 Hear, ye heavens, and give ear thou earth, for Jehovah spake: for I caused to grow and lifted up sons, and they rebelled against me. 3 . The ox knew his possessor, and the ass his lord's stall: Israel knew not; my people understood not 4 Wo! sinful nation, a people heavy with sin, a seed doing evil, sons acting wickedly; they forsook Jehovah; they despised the holy one of Israel; they separated themselves backward. 5 For what shall ye be yet struck? will ye add apostasy? every head for sickness, and every heart sick 6 From the sole of the foot and even to the head, no wholeness in it; a wound and bruise, and a fresh blow: they were not pressed out, and they were not bound up, and they were not softened with oil. 7 Your land made desolate, your cities burnt with fire, your land before your strangers eating it up, and made desolate, as the overthrow of strangers. 8 And the daughter of Zion was left as a booth in a vineyard, as a lodge in a field of cucumbers, as a city besieged. 9 Unless Jehovah of armies left to us an escaping so small, we were as Sodom and we were made like to Gomorrah. 10 Hear the word of Jehovah, ye leaders of Sodom: give ear to the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. 11 For what to me the multitude of your sacrifices? Jehovah will say: I was filled with the burnt-offerings of rams and the fat of fatlings; and I delighted not in the blood of bullocks, and of he lambs and of he goats. 12 When ye shall come to be seen before me who sought this from your hand to tread my enclosure. 13 Ye shall not add to bring gifts of iniquity; incense, this an abomination to me; the new moon and the Sabbath, the calling of the assembly; I shall not be able to bear vanity and restraining. 14 Your new moons and your appointments my soul hated; they were for a burden upon me; I was wearied to lift up. 15 And in the spreading forth of your hands I will hide mine eyes from you.; also when ye shall multiply prayer I hear not: your hands were full of blood. 16 Wash ye, cleanse yourselves: turn away evil from your doings from before mine eyes; leave off the evil; 17 Learn to do good; seek out judgment, lead right the oppressor, judge the orphan, contend for the widow. 18 Come now we will confute together Jehovah will say: if your sins shall be as deep scarlet, they shall be white as snow; if they shall be red as crimson, they shall be as wool. 19 If ye shall be willing and hear, ye shall eat the good of the land. 20 And if ye shall refuse and rebel, ye shall be eaten by the sword: for the mouth of Jehovah spake. 21 How was the faithful city for a harlot! I filled with judgment; justice will lodge in her; and now they are killing 22 Thy silver was for dross, thy wine adulterated with water. 23 Thy chiefs turning away, and associates of thieves: every one loving a gift and following recompenses: the orphan they will not judge, and the cause of the widow will not come to them. 24 For this says the lord Jehovah of armies, the mighty one of Israel, Wo! I will take vengeance of mine adversaries, and I will avenge myself of mine enemies: 25 And I will turn back my hand upon thee, end I will straiten thy dross according to pureness, and I will remove all thine alloy: 26 And I will turn back thy judges as in the beginning, and thy counsellors as in the beginning: after this he shall call to thee, The city of justice, the faithful city. 27 Zion shall be ransomed with judgment and her captivity with justice. 28 Breaking the transgressing and the sinning together, and they forsaking Jehovah shall be finished. 29 For they shall be ashamed of their mighty ones which ye desired, and ye shall blush for the gardens which ye chose. 30 For ye shall be as an oak the leaf withering, and as a garden which there no water to it. 31 And the strong was for tow, and his work for a spark, and they two were burnt together, and none quenching.

Revelation 18:2

2 And he cried with a great, strong voice, saying, She fell, Babylon the great fell, and became the dwelling of devils, and the prison of every unclean spirit, and the prison of every unclean and detested bird.

from all vessels of wood, or garment, or skin, or sack, every vessel which work shall be done in them, into water shall it go, and be unclean till the evening: and it shall be clean. 33 And every vessel of earthen upon which it shall fall from them, into its midst, all which is in its midst shall be unclean, and ye shall break it 34 From all food which shall be eaten which water shall come upon it, shall be unclean: and all drink which shall be drank from every vessel shall be unclean. 35 And every thing which their carcass shall fall upon it shall be unclean: oven and cooking-furnace shall be broken down: they are unclean, and they shall be unclean to you. 36 But a fountain and pit, a gathering of waters, shall be clean: and he touching upon their carcass shall be unclean. 37 And when from their carcass shall fall upon any seed of sowing which shall be sown, it is clean. 38 And when water shall be given upon the seed and from their carcass fall upon it it is unclean to you. 39 And when there shall die from the cattle which is to you for eating, he touching upon its carcass shall be unclean till the evening. 40 And he eating from its carcass shall cleanse his garments, and be unclean till the evening; and he lifting up its carcass shall wash his garments and be unclean till the evening. 41 And every creeping thing creeping the earth, it is abomination; it shall not be eaten. 42 Every thing going upon the belly, every thing going upon four always, every thing multiplying feet, of all creeping things creeping upon the earth, ye shall not eat them; for they are abomination. 43 Ye shall not make your souls abominable by any creeping thing creeping, and ye shall not be unclean by them, and be defiled by them. 44 For I am Jehovah, your God, and ye were consecrated and ye were holy, for I am holy: and ye shall not make your souls unclean by any creeping thing creeping upon the earth. 45 For I am Jehovah bringing up from the land of Egypt, to be to you for God: and ye shall be holy, for I am holy. 46 This the law of cattle, and of bird, and of every living soul creeping in the water, and for every soul creeping upon the earth. 47 To separate between the unclean and between the clean, and between the beast being eaten and between the beast which shall not be eaten.

Matthew 8:28-32

28 And he having come beyond the country of the Gergesenes, two possessed with evil spirits, coming out of the tombs, met him, very rough, so that not any could pass by that way. 29 And, behold, they cried out., saying, What to us and thee, Jesus, Son of God? hast thou come here to torture us before the time 30 And far off from them was a herd of many swine grazing. 31 And the evil spirits besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, permit us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And he said to them, Retire. And having gone, they went away into the herd of swine: and, behold, all the herd of swine rushed down the precipice into the sea, and died in the water.
