Leviticus 22:8 Parallel
CommentaryLeviticus 22:8 Parallel Commentaries
The fat of an animal found dead or torn to pieces by wild animals must never be eaten, though it may be used for any other purpose.
"If an animal you are permitted to eat dies and you touch its carcass, you will be defiled until evening.
If you eat any of its meat or carry away its carcass, you must wash your clothes, and you will remain defiled until evening.
"And if any native-born Israelites or foreigners eat the meat of an animal that died naturally or was torn up by wild animals, they must wash their clothes and bathe themselves in water. They will remain ceremonially unclean until evening, but then they will be clean.
"You must not eat anything that has died a natural death. You may give it to a foreigner living in your town, or you may sell it to a stranger. But do not eat it yourselves, for you are set apart as holy to the LORD your God. "You must not cook a young goat in its mother's milk.
Then I said, "O Sovereign LORD, must I be defiled by using human dung? For I have never been defiled before. From the time I was a child until now I have never eaten any animal that died of sickness or was killed by other animals. I have never eaten any meat forbidden by the law."
The priests may not eat meat from any bird or animal that dies a natural death or that dies after being attacked by another animal.
