14190Locusts on the menu
- Apr 1, 2012Is there something seriously wrong with this translation? If not, how could
the author have thought insects have 4 legs?
[*20*]"All winged insects that go upon all fours are an abomination to you.
[*21*] Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those
which have legs above their feet, with which to leap on the earth.
[*22*] Of them you may eat: the locust according to its kind, the bald
locust according to its kind, the cricket according to its kind, and the
grasshopper according to its kind.
[*23*] But all other winged insects which have four feet are an abomination
