Do not eat swarming creatures of the ground

 

 “Every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth is an abomination, it shall not be eaten “Vayikra 11:41.

 

Swarming creatures of the ground means snakes, scorpions, beetles and worms.

Whoever eats a whole creature should receive lashes.

If not complete and he ate an olive size amount he should receive lashes.

All swarming creatures are added up together to give an olive size amount.

 

This applies in all places at all times for men and women.

Do not eat swarming creatures of the ground
