Deuteronomy 14
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1"You are children of LORD JEHOVAH your God; you shall not be tattooed and you shall not make baldness between your eyes for the dead. 2Because you are holy people to LORD JEHOVAH your God and LORD JEHOVAH your God chose you that you would be the most beloved people to him of all of the nations upon the face of the Earth.

3You shall not eat anything that is defiled. 4And this is the animal that you shall eat: the ox and the lamb and the ewe and the goat. 5And the stag and the deer and the antelope and the mountain goat and the buffalo and the ibex and the mountain sheep. 6Every beast that parts its hoof and divides it in two and chews cud; eat that. 7But these you shall not eat, of those that chew cud and of those that part their hooves as cloven cleft feet: the camel, and the arnaba, and the rabbit chewing cud and their hooves do not part; they are defiled to you. 8And the swine parts its hoof and does not chew cud; it is defiled to you; you shall not eat of their flesh and their carcasses you shall not touch.

9And of all that is in water eat these: eat everything that has fins and scales: 10And you shall not eat anything that has no fins and scales; it is defiled to you.

11And eat every bird that is clean. 12And these you will not eat of them: the eagle and the vulture, 13And the raven with their kinds and the ostrich and the hawk with their kinds, 14And the little owl, the heron and the crow, 15And the owl and the pelican and the bee eater, 16And the stork and the hoopoe with its kinds, 17And a male chicken and the peacock, 18And all offspring of such a bird is defiled to you; they shall not be eaten. 19And eat every bird that is clean. 20And you shall not eat anything that is defiled, but give it to the traveler who is in your city; he will eat it.

21Or sell it to a foreigner, because you are a holy people to LORD JEHOVAH your God; you shall not boil a kid in the milk of its mother.

22To tithe, give a tenth of all the crops of your seed that the field brings forth, year to year. 23And eat a tenth of your crops and of your wine and of your oil and the firstborn of your oxen and of your flocks before LORD JEHOVAH your God in the place where He has chosen to camp his Name there, and you shall learn to worship before LORD JEHOVAH your God all of the days. 24And if the journey is too much for you and you cannot take it, because the place that LORD JEHOVAH your God has chosen to camp his name there is too far from you, when LORD JEHOVAH your God blessed you: 25Sell it for silver and wrap up the money in your hand and go to the region LORD JEHOVAH your God has chosen: 26And buy with the silver everything that your soul wants, from oxen, or from sheep, or from wine, or from strong drink, or from all that your soul demands for you, and eat there before LORD JEHOVAH your God and rejoice, you and your household: 27And do not forsake the Levite who is in your city, because he has no division or an inheritance with you.

28And after three years bring out all the tithes of your crops in that year; leave them in your cities: 29And let the Levite come who has no portion or inheritance with you, and whoever is converted to me, and the orphan and the widow in your cities, and they will eat and they will be satisfied and LORD JEHOVAH your God will bless you in all the works of your hands that you will do.”
