 11:25
11:24 There are [also] animals that will defile you so that anyone touching their carcasses will be unclean until evening.
Ule'eleh titama'u kol-hanogea benivlatam yitma ad-ha'arev.
11:25 Furthermore, anyone lifting their carcasses will have to immerse [even] his clothing, and then remain unclean until evening.
Vechol-hanose minivlatam yechabes begadav vetame ad-ha'arev.



Commentary:

There are also
  (Sifra; Rashi). Literally, 'and to these' (the following).

until evening
  After immersing, as in Leviticus 11:25.

lifting
  This imparts a greater degree of impurity, since touching a carcass merely defiles the body, while lifting it also defiles the clothing (Kelim 1:2).

immerse even
  And certainly his body. See Exodus 19:10, Leviticus 15:5.
