Leviticus 11:20, An Easy Law To Keep
All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
//This verse is talking about which animals may be eaten and which may not. Most translations don’t read “fowl”, they read “flying insects.” The law says don’t eat anything that flies and walks on all fours.
This is quite an easy law to keep because there is no such creature! Birds have two legs, insects have six or eight. I can think of a few legendary beasts with four legs that fly, but nothing real.
Can we rename the law for simplicity? Do not eat imaginary animals.
