 Exodus 34:26

“Bring the first of the first-fruits of your land to the House of YHWH your Elohim. Do not cook a kid in its mother’s milk.”

Deuteronomy 14:21
“Do not eat whatever dies of itself. Give it to the stranger who is within your gates, to eat it, or sell it to a foreigner. For you are a set-apart people to YHWH your Elohim. Do not cook a kid in its mother’s milk.

Commentary

We included this definition in response to our resource Can We Eat Cheeseburgers?  There are many different words in the Bible that are translated as “kid” and many of them mean different things.  However, the three verses that speak about not boiling a kid in its mother’s milk all use the same word, which is specific to young male goats.
