Deuteronomy 14:7  Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the  cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel,  and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but  divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you.

Deuteronomy 14:21 Ye shall not eat of any thing 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: for thou  art an holy people unto the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not  seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.

Deuteronomy 14:24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art  not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee,  which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name  there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: 

Deuteronomy 14:25  Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD  thy God shall choose: 

Deuteronomy 14:26 And thou shalt bestow that  money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for  sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy  soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy  God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,

Deuteronomy 14:29 And the Levite, (because he hath  no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the  fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates,  shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the LORD  thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which  thou doest.  KJV
