      Is there something seriously wrong with this translation? If not, how could
      the author have thought insects have 4 legs?


      Lev. 11:

      [*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
      to you.
