Leviticus 11 Observations

Leviticus 11 This is a chapter of remembrance. Or better yet, this is a chapter full of reminders. I say this because the concept of clean and unclean animals can be found in Genesis. Noah was instructed to take more clean animals than unclean animals onto the ark (Genesis 7).

Leviticus 11:10-12 Animals without fins or scales are bottom feeders/scavengers in the waters upon the earth. YAH created them to eat/break down the waste of the oceans and the seas to keep them clean. He has created the original environmentally friendly system. Farm raised unclean animals aren’t any better either.

Leviticus 11:20 This verse has always puzzled me. What fowl or bird walks on four legs? Birds have two legs. Even if this verse is about flying insects too, they have six legs. Maybe there once were four-legged fowl upon the earth. Please comment below if you know of any fowl or birds that go upon four legs that are around today or are extinct. I really would like to know.

H5775 ‛ôph ofe
From H5774; a bird (as covered with feathers, or rather as covering with wings), often collective: – bird, that flieth, flying, fowl.
Total KJV occurrences: 71

Leviticus 11 The word abomination is used ten times in this chapter which deals with what the people of YAH should and should not eat. One of the first commandments given to Adam and Eve in Genesis concerned what to eat. These two observations point out YAH’s deep concern and provision for our wellbeing.

Leviticus 11:44 This verse seems to show that what we eat and what we do not eat are connected to true Biblical holiness.


Please, please comment below if you see ANYTHING that is contrary to Scripture that I have presented in these Scripture Observations. I want Truth and when I see that I have made a mistake, I want to correct that. No chips on my shoulders here.

I also ask one thing, though. Please, please present your thoughts in the context of two or three Scripture references, not just one (see Deuteronomy 17:6; Matthew 18:16; 2 Corinthians 13:1). One verse (especially one verse out of context) will not be received as evidence. I am just not one to interpret Scripture or accept other’s interpretation of Scripture apart from the written Word of YAH found in the whole counsel of His written Word.

I try my best to limit the use of the precursor words of “I think” or “I believe” without Scripture to back up my “I thinks” and “I believes.” Not only on this site, but be on the lookout anywhere else for excessive “I think” and “I believe” statements presented as Truth, with no Scriptural evidence to back up the statements.

The written Word of YAHUAH is the standard, the vanguard against deception which as you know is quite rampant these days.
