Leviticus 11:1-47

1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying unto them, 2 `Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, This is the beast which ye do eat out of all the beasts which are on the earth: 3 any dividing a hoof, and cleaving the cleft of the hoofs, bringing up the cud, among the beasts, it ye do eat. 4 `Only, this ye do not eat—of those bringing up the cud, and of those dividing the hoof—the camel, though it is bringing up the cud, yet the hoof not dividing—it is unclean to you; 5 and the rabbit, though it is bringing up the cud, yet the hoof it divideth not—unclean it is to you; 6 and the hare, though it is bringing up the cud, yet the hoof hath not divided—unclean it is to you; 7 and the sow, though it is dividing the hoof, and cleaving the cleft of the hoof, yet the cud it bringeth not up—unclean it is to you. 8 `Of their flesh ye do not eat, and against their carcase ye do not come—unclean they are to you.
9 `This ye do eat of all which are in the waters; any one that hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the brooks, them ye do eat; 10 and any one that hath not fins and scales in the seas, and in the brooks, of any teeming creature of the waters, and of any creature which liveth, which is in the waters—an abomination they are to you; 11 yea, an abomination they are to you; of their flesh ye do not eat, and their carcase ye abominate. 12 `Any one that hath not fins and scales in the waters—an abomination it is to you. 13 `And these ye do abominate of the fowl; they are not eaten, an abomination they are : the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, 14 and the vulture, and the kite after its kind, 15 every raven after its kind, 16 and the owl, and the night-hawk, and the cuckoo, and the hawk after its kind, 17 and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, 18 and the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, 19 and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
20 `Every teeming creature which is flying, which is going on four—an abomination it is to you. 21 `Only—this ye do eat of any teeming thing which is flying, which is going on four, which hath legs above its feet, to move with them on the earth; 22 these of them ye do eat: the locust after its kind, and the bald locust after its kind, and the beetle after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind; 23 and every teeming thing which is flying, which hath four feet—an abomination it is to you. 24 `And by these ye are made unclean, any one who is coming against their carcase is unclean till the evening; 25 and anyone who is lifting up aught of their carcase doth wash his garments, and hath been unclean till the evening: — 26 even every beast which is dividing the hoof, and is not cloven-footed, and the cud is not bringing up—unclean they are to you; any one who is coming against them is unclean. 27 `And any one going on its paws, among all the beasts which are going on four—unclean they are to you; any one who is coming against their carcase is unclean until the evening; 28 and he who is lifting up their carcase doth wash his garments, and hath been unclean until the evening—unclean they are to you. 29 `And this is to you the unclean among the teeming things which are teeming on the earth: the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after its kind, 30 and the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole; 31 these are the unclean to you among all which are teeming; any one who is coming against them in their death is unclean till the evening. 32 `And anything on which any one of them falleth, in their death, is unclean, of any vessel of wood or garment or skin or sack, any vessel in which work is done is brought into water, and hath been unclean till the evening, then it hath been clean; 33 and any earthen vessel, into the midst of which any one of them falleth, all that is in its midst is unclean, and it ye do break. 34 `Of all the food which is eaten, that on which cometh such water, is unclean, and all drink which is drunk in any such vessel is unclean; 35 and anything on which any of their carcase falleth is unclean (oven or double pots), it is broken down, unclean they are, yea, unclean they are to you. 36 `Only—a fountain or pit, a collection of water, is clean, but that which is coming against their carcase is unclean; 37 and when any of their carcase falleth on any sown seed which is sown—it is clean; 38 and when water is put on the seed, and any of its carcase hath fallen on it—unclean it is to you. 39 `And when any of the beasts which are to you for food dieth, he who is coming against its carcase is unclean till the evening; 40 and he who is eating of its carcase doth wash his garments, and hath been unclean till the evening; and he who is lifting up its carcase doth wash his garments, and hath been unclean till the evening. 41 `And every teeming thing which is teeming on the earth is an abomination, it is not eaten; 42 any thing going on the belly, and any going on four, unto every multiplier of feet, to every teeming thing which is teeming on the earth—ye do not eat them, for they are an abomination;
43 ye do not make yourselves abominable with any teeming thing which is teeming, nor do ye make yourselves unclean with them, so that ye have been unclean thereby. 44 `For I am Jehovah your God, and ye have sanctified yourselves, and ye have been holy, for I am holy; and ye do not defile your persons with any teeming thing which is creeping on the earth; 45 for I am Jehovah who am bringing you up out of the land of Egypt to become your God; and ye have been holy, for I am holy. 46 `This is a law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature which is moving in the waters, and of every creature which is teeming on the earth, 47 to make separation between the unclean and the pure, and between the beast that is eaten, and the beast that is not eaten.'

Ezekiel 4:9

9 `And thou, take to thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and spelt, and thou hast put them in one vessel, and made them to thee for bread; the number of the days that thou art lying on thy side—three hundred and ninety days—thou dost eat it.

Daniel 1:1-21

1 In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, come hath Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Jerusalem, and layeth siege against it; 2 and the Lord giveth into his hand Jehoiakim king of Judah, and some of the vessels of the house of God, and he bringeth them in to the land of Shinar, to the house of his god, and the vessels he hath brought in to the treasure-house of his god. 3 And the king saith, to Ashpenaz master of his eunuchs, to bring in out of the sons of Israel, (even of the royal seed, and of the chiefs,) 4 lads in whom there is no blemish, and of good appearance, and skilful in all wisdom, and possessing knowledge, and teaching thought, and who have ability to stand in the palace of the king, and to teach them the literature and language of the Chaldeans. 5 And the king doth appoint for them a rate, day by day, of the king's portion of food, and of the wine of his drinking, so as to nourish them three years, that at the end thereof they may stand before the king. 6 And there are among them out of the sons of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, 7 and the chief of the eunuchs setteth names on them, and he setteth on Daniel, Belteshazzar; and on Hananiah, Shadrach; and on Mishael, Meshach; and on Azariah, Abed-Nego.
8 And Daniel purposeth in his heart that he will not pollute himself with the king's portion of food, and with the wine of his drinking, and he seeketh of the chief of the eunuchs that he may not pollute himself. 9 And God giveth Daniel for kindness and for mercies before the chief of the eunuchs; 10 and the chief of the eunuchs saith to Daniel, `I am fearing my lord the king, who hath appointed your food and your drink, for why doth he see your faces sadder than those of the lads which are of your circle? then ye have made my head indebted to the king,' 11 And Daniel saith unto the Meltzar, whom the chief of the eunuchs hath appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, 12 `Try, I pray thee, thy servants, ten days; and they give to us of the vegetables, and we eat, and water, and we drink; 13 and our appearance is seen before thee, and the appearance of the lads who are eating the king's portion of food, and as thou seest—deal with thy servants.' 14 And he hearkeneth to them, to this word, and trieth them ten days: 15 and at the end of ten days their appearance hath appeared better and fatter in flesh then any of the lads who are eating the king's portion of food. 16 And the Meltzar is taking away their portion of food, and the wine of their drink, and is giving to them vegetables.
17 As to these four lads, God hath given to them knowledge and understanding in every kind of literature, and wisdom; and Daniel hath given instruction about every kind of vision and dreams. 18 And at the end of the days that the king had said to bring them in, bring them in doth the chief of the eunuchs before Nebuchadnezzar. 19 And the king speaketh with them, and there hath none been found among them all like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, and they stand before the king; 20 and in any matter of wisdom and understanding that the king hath sought of them, he findeth them ten hands above all the scribes, the enchanters, who are in all his kingdom. 21 And Daniel is unto the first year of Cyrus the king.

Romans 14:1-23

1 And him who is weak in the faith receive ye—not to determinations of reasonings; 2 one doth believe that he may eat all things—and he who is weak doth eat herbs; 3 let not him who is eating despise him who is not eating: and let not him who is not eating judge him who is eating, for God did receive him. 4 Thou—who art thou that art judging another's domestic? to his own master he doth stand or fall; and he shall be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand. 5 One doth judge one day above another, and another doth judge every day alike; let each in his own mind be fully assured. 6 He who is regarding the day, to the Lord he doth regard it, and he who is not regarding the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it . He who is eating, to the Lord he doth eat, for he doth give thanks to God; and he who is not eating, to the Lord he doth not eat, and doth give thanks to God. 7 For none of us to himself doth live, and none to himself doth die; 8 for both, if we may live, to the Lord we live; if also we may die, to the Lord we die; both then if we may live, also if we may die, we are the Lord's; 9 for because of this Christ both died and rose again, and lived again, that both of dead and of living he may be Lord. 10 And thou, why dost thou judge thy brother? or again, thou, why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand at the tribunal of the Christ; 11 for it hath been written, `I live! saith the Lord—to Me bow shall every knee, and every tongue shall confess to God;' 12 so, then, each of us concerning himself shall give reckoning to God; 13 no longer, therefore, may we judge one another, but this judge ye rather, not to put a stumbling-stone before the brother, or an offence. 14 I have known, and am persuaded, in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself, except to him who is reckoning anything to be unclean—to that one it is unclean; 15 and if through victuals thy brother is grieved, no more dost thou walk according to love; do not with thy victuals destroy that one for whom Christ died. 16 Let not, then, your good be evil spoken of, 17 for the reign of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit; 18 for he who in these things is serving the Christ, is acceptable to God and approved of men. 19 So, then, the things of peace may we pursue, and the things of building up one another; 20 for the sake of victuals cast not down the work of God; all things, indeed, are pure, but evil is to the man who is eating through stumbling. 21 Right it is not to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything in which thy brother doth stumble, or is made to fall, or is weak. 22 Thou hast faith! to thyself have it before God; happy is he who is not judging himself in what he doth approve, 23 and he who is making a difference, if he may eat, hath been condemned, because it is not of faith; and all that is not of faith is sin.

Genesis 9:3

3 Every creeping thing that is alive, to you it is for food; as the green herb I have given to you the whole;

Genesis 1:29

29 And God saith, `Lo, I have given to you every herb sowing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree sowing seed, to you it is for food;

Daniel 1:12

12 `Try, I pray thee, thy servants, ten days; and they give to us of the vegetables, and we eat, and water, and we drink;
