Leviticus 11:20-25

Lev 11:20 “All winged insects that go on all fours are detestable to you.
Lev 11:21 Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those that have jointed legs above their feet, with which to hop on the ground.
Lev 11:22 Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind.
Lev 11:23 But all other winged insects that have four feet are detestable to you.
Lev 11:24 “And by these you will become contaminated. Whoever touches their carcass will be contaminated until the evening,
Lev 11:25 and whoever carries any part of their carcass will wash his clothes and be contaminated until the evening.

pests on the plate

Certain insects are a delicacy in many parts of the world, providing food in places where there is little opportunity for domesticated animals to thrive. Often these pests swarm at certain times of the year, providing a predictable harvest. So, while most insects were off limits to the Israelites, God made exceptions even to this rule. He loved his people and always found ways of taking care of them.

LORD, thank you for your provision.
