Bible: Leviticus 11:43-45

11:43 Do not make yourselves detestable by any of the swarming things. 1  You must not defile yourselves by them and become unclean by them, 11:44 for I am the Lord your God and you are to sanctify yourselves and be holy because I am holy. You must not defile yourselves by any of the swarming things that creep on the ground, 11:45 for I am the Lord who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God, 2  and you are to be holy because I am holy.
