Deuteronomium 14 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

14 Filii estote Domini Dei vestri: non vos incidetis, nec facietis calvitium super mortuo:

quoniam populus sanctus es Domino Deo tuo, et te elegit ut sis ei in populum peculiarem de cunctis gentibus, quae sunt super terram.

Ne comedatis quae immunda sunt.

Hoc est animal quod comedere debetis: bovem, et ovem, et capram,

cervum et capream, bubalum, tragelaphum, pygargum, orygem, camelopardalum.

Omne animal, quod in duas partes findit ungulam, et ruminat, comedetis.

De his autem, quae ruminant, et ungulam non findunt, comedere non debetis, ut camelum, leporem, choerogryllum: haec, quia ruminant et non dividunt ungulam, immunda erunt vobis.

Sus quoque, quoniam dividat ungulam et non ruminat, immunda erit. Carnibus eorum non vescemini, et cadavera non tangetis.

Haec comedetis ex omnibus quae morantur in aquis: quae habent pinnulas et squamas, comedite:

10 quae absque pinnulis et squamis sunt, ne comedatis, quia immunda sunt.

11 Omnes aves mundas comedite.

12 Immundas ne comedatis: aquilam scilicet, et gryphem, et haliaeetum,

13 ixion et vulturem ac milvum juxta genus suum:

14 et omne corvini generis,

15 et struthionem, ac noctuam, et larum, atque accipitrem juxta genus suum:

16 herodium ac cygnum, et ibin,

17 ac mergulum, porphyrionem, et nycticoracem,

18 onocrotalum, et charadrium, singula in genere suo: upupam quoque et vespertilionem.

19 Et omne quod reptat et pennulas habet, immundum erit, et non comedetur.

20 Omne quod mundum est, comedite.

21 Quidquid autem morticinum est, ne vescamini ex eo. Peregrino, qui intra portas tuas est, da ut comedat, aut vende ei: quia tu populus sanctus Domini Dei tui es. Non coques haedum in lacte matris suae.

22 Decimam partem separabis de cunctis fructibus tuis qui nascuntur in terra per annos singulos,

23 et comedes in conspectu Domini Dei tui in loco quem elegerit, ut in eo nomen illius invocetur, decimam frumenti tui, et vini, et olei, et primogenita de armentis et ovibus tuis: ut discas timere Dominum Deum tuum omni tempore.

24 Cum autem longior fuerit via, et locus quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus, tibique benedixerit, nec potueris ad eum haec cuncta portare,

25 vendes omnia, et in pretium rediges, portabisque manu tua, et proficisceris ad locum quem elegerit Dominus Deus tuus:

26 et emes ex eadem pecunia quidquid tibi placuerit, sive ex armentis, sive ex ovibus, vinum quoque et siceram, et omne quod desiderat anima tua: et comedes coram Domino Deo tuo, et epulaberis tu et domus tua:

27 et Levites qui intra portas tuas est, cave ne derelinquas eum, quia non habet aliam partem in possessione tua.

28 Anno tertio separabis aliam decimam ex omnibus quae nascuntur tibi eo tempore, et repones intra januas tuas.

29 Venietque Levites qui aliam non habet partem nec possessionem tecum, et peregrinus ac pupillus et vidua, qui intra portas tuas sunt, et comedent et saturabuntur: ut benedicat tibi Dominus Deus tuus in cunctis operibus manuum tuarum quae feceris.

Deuteronomy 14 New International Version (NIV)

Clean and Unclean Food

14 You are the children of the Lord your God. Do not cut yourselves or shave the front of your heads for the dead, for you are a people holy to the Lord your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession.

Do not eat any detestable thing. These are the animals you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat, the deer, the gazelle, the roe deer, the wild goat, the ibex, the antelope and the mountain sheep.[a] You may eat any animal that has a divided hoof and that chews the cud. However, of those that chew the cud or that have a divided hoof you may not eat the camel, the rabbit or the hyrax. Although they chew the cud, they do not have a divided hoof; they are ceremonially unclean for you. The pig is also unclean; although it has a divided hoof, it does not chew the cud. You are not to eat their meat or touch their carcasses.

Of all the creatures living in the water, you may eat any that has fins and scales. 10 But anything that does not have fins and scales you may not eat; for you it is unclean.

11 You may eat any clean bird. 12 But these you may not eat: the eagle, the vulture, the black vulture, 13 the red kite, the black kite, any kind of falcon, 14 any kind of raven, 15 the horned owl, the screech owl, the gull, any kind of hawk, 16 the little owl, the great owl, the white owl, 17 the desert owl, the osprey, the cormorant, 18 the stork, any kind of heron, the hoopoe and the bat.

19 All flying insects are unclean to you; do not eat them. 20 But any winged creature that is clean you may eat.

21 Do not eat anything you find already dead. You may give it to the foreigner residing in any of your towns, and they may eat it, or you may sell it to any other foreigner. But you are a people holy to the Lord your God.

Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk.

Tithes

22 Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. 23 Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of the Lord your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere the Lord your God always. 24 But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by the Lord your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the Lord will choose to put his Name is so far away), 25 then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the Lord your God will choose. 26 Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice. 27 And do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own.

28 At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, 29 so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.
