BIRDS OF ABOMINATION

List of twenty birds not to be consumed by Israelites (Leviticus 11:13-19). The reason for the exclusion of these birds is unclear. Some have suggested that the birds were prohibited because they were associated with the worship of idols. Others have suggested that they were excluded because they ate flesh which contained blood or because they had contact with corpses—both of which would make one ritually unclean (see Leviticus 7:26; Leviticus 17:13-14; Leviticus 21:1-4,Leviticus 21:11; Leviticus 22:4; Numbers 5:2-3; Numbers 6:6-11). See Birds.
