14:8 Also included is the pig, which has a true hoof, but does not have a cud, and is therefore unclean to you.

Do not eat the flesh of these [animals] and do not touch their carcasses.
Ve'et-hachazir ki-mafris parsah hu velo gerah tame hu lachem mibesaram lo tochelu uvenivlatam lo tiga'u.

14:9 Among that which is in the water, you may eat anything that has fins and scales.
Et-zeh tochelu mikol asher bamayim kol asher-lo snapir vekaskeset tochelu.
