"I am the Lord your God. 
You shall therefore consecrate 
    and you shall be holy;
        for I am holy. 
Neither shall 
you defile yourselves
    with any thing that creeps on the earth.

For I am the Lord who brings you up
    out of the land of Egypt, 

        to be your God.  
You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy."

                                                         --- Leviticus 11:44-45
