EJ&T Deuteronomy 14: Don't make any baldness between your eyes for dead people or eat any abominable thing

In the Every Jot and Tittle project, I am listing all of the Bible's commandments from Genesis to Revelation, in accordance with Jesus's words in Matthew 5:18-19. I have no idea how many commandments I'll find, but Jewish tradition claims there are 613. See here for a list of those that I've found so far.

  1. Don't make any baldness between your eyes for dead people.
  2. Ye shall not ... make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. Deuteronomy 14:1

  3. Don't eat any abominable thing.
  4. Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing. Deuteronomy 14:3

  5. Eat these animals: oxen, sheep, goats, harts, roebucks, fallow deer, pygargs, and chamois.
  6. These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat, The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois. Deuteronomy 14:4-5

  7. Eat clean birds.
  8. Of all clean birds ye shall eat. Deuteronomy 14:11

    All clean fowls ye may eat. Deuteronomy 14:20

  9. Don't eat animals that die by themselves. Feed them to strangers or sell them to aliens.
  10. Ye shall not eat of anything that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien. Deuteronomy 14:21
