While reading about the coney, this passage in the KJV caught my attention: Deu. 14:7 "Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you." The Hebrew here translated "hare" is 'arnebeth'. Now we know no known hare chews the cud, while God is always right. My rabbi friend tells me that arnebeth is of uncertain meaning, but it certainly isn't 'hare'. Any thoughts?
