Pulpit Commentary Verse 7.-The Swine, though he Divide Hoof, and be Clovenfooted. Here, again, description is not according to anatomical analysis, but to ordinary appearance. The pig appears to be cleave-Foot, and it would be misleading to give any other account of his foot in ordinary speech, but scientifically speaking, he has four toes. Prohibition of use of Swine's flesh does not arise from fear of trichinosis or other disease, but from disgust caused by the carnivorous and filthy habits of the Eastern Pig. The repulsion originally felt for Swine's flesh was natural, And, where animal is carnivorous, is still natural, but where its habits change, and it has become simply graminivorous, feeling has ceased to exist.

Leviticus 11:7 Context

Benson Commentary Leviticus 11: 7. And swine this animal is remarkable for filthiness, and for feeding on all manner of ordure, even carrion if it falls in its way, and therefore sow wallowing in mire is set forth as an emblem of impurity, by writers sacred and profane. And Maimonides alleges its filthiness as the chief reason for its flesh being prohibit. Vossius, however, added another, namely, that it had a tendency to breed leprosy, disease incident in those countries. And, according to the author of the Medicinal Dictionary, it is only animals in creation subject to leprosy, and to something very like kingas evil, called in Latin scrofula, from scrofa, sow. Flesh, therefore, of this animal could not be highly improper, as aliment, for people subject to leprosies, as Jews appear to have been, and who were inhabitants of warm climate, which render everything more inclinable to putrefaction. Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary 11: 1-47 What animals were clean and unclean.-These laws seem to have been intend, 1. As a test of people's obedience, As Adam was forbid to eat the tree of knowledge; and to teach them self-denial, and government of their appetites. 2. To keep Israelites distinct from other nations. Many of these forbidden animals were objects of superstition and idolatry to Heathen. 3. People were taught to make distinctions between holy and unholy in their companions and intimate connexions. 4. Law forbad, not only eating of unclean beasts, but touching them. Those who would be keep from any sin, must be careful to avoid all temptations to it, or coming near it. Exceptions are very minute, and all were designed to call forth constant care and exactness in their obedience; and to teach us to obey. Whilst we enjoy our Christian liberty, and are free from such burdensome observances, we must be careful not to abuse our liberty. For the Lord hath redeem and call his people, that they may be holy, even as He is holy. We must come out, and be separate from the world; we must leave the company of ungodly, and all needless connexions with those who are dead in sin; we must be zealous of good works, devote followers of God, and companions of his people.] Barnes' Notes on Bible He divides hoof.-It is cleave-foot and complete etc. See Leviticus 11: 3 note. Of all quadrupeds of which the law forbids flesh to be eat, pigs seem to have been regarded as most unclean. Compare marginal references. Several other nations have agreed with Hebrew in this respect: reason being that its flesh is unwholesome, especially in warm climates. Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary 7.

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 11:7

From laws concerning priests, he now comes to those which belong to all people. God spake to both of them, because cognizance of following matters belong to both: priest was to direct people to things forbidden or allow, where any doubt or difficulty arose; and the magistrate was to see direction follow. These are beasts. Though every creature of God is good and pure in itself, yet it pleases God to make difference between clean and unclean, which He does in part before Flood, Genesis 7: 2, But more fully here for many reasons; As, 1. To assert His own sovereignty over man, and all creatures which men may not use but with God's leave. 2. To keep up the wall of partition between Jews and other nations, which was very necessary for many great and wise purposes. 3. That by bridling their appetite for things in themselves lawful, and some of them very desirable, they might be better prepared and enabled to deny themselves in things simply and grossly sinful. 4. For preservation of their health, some creatures forbidden being, though use by neighbouring nations, of unwholesome nourishment, especially to Jews, who were very obnoxious to leprosies. To teach them to abhor that filthiness, and all those ill qualities For which some of these creatures are note. Cloven-foot that is, divided into two parts only: this clause is added to explain and limit the former, As appears from Leviticus 11: 26, For feet of dogs, cats etc. They are part or cleave into many parts. And cheweth cud Heb. And bringeth up cud, that is, meat once chew, out of the stomach into the mouth again, that it may be chewed second time for better concoction. And this branch is to be joined with the former, Both properties being necessary for allowing beasts. But the reason hereof must be resolved into the will of the Law-giver; Though interpreters guess that God would hereby signify their duties, first, that of discerning between good and evil; and later, that duty of recalling God's word to our minds and meditating upon it. Camel is a usual food in Arabia, but yields bad nourishment. Divideth not hoof so as to have His foot cleave in two, which being express, Leviticus 11: 3, is here to be understood. Otherwise camel's hoof is divide, but it is but small and imperfect division. As for names of following creatures, seeing Jews themselves are uncertain and divided about them, it seems improper to trouble unlearned readers with disputes about them. Ye shall not Touch not in order to eating, As may be gathered by comparing this with Genesis 3: 3. But since the fat and skins of some forbidden creatures were useful, for medicinal and other good purposes, and were used by good men, it is not probable that God would have them cast away.
