Leviticus 11:44 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

44 For I, the Lord, am your God. You shall make and keep yourselves holy,[a] because I am holy. You shall not make yourselves unclean, then, by any swarming creature that crawls on the ground.

Footnotes:

  1. 11:44–45 Keep yourselves holy…you shall be holy: a similar idea is expressed in 20:25–26. There, distinguishing between the animals is compared to God’s distinguishing between the peoples and choosing Israel.
