5沙番 ―因为倒 嚼 不分 蹄 ,就与你们不洁净 ;
5And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
5 Verse 5. The coney] shaphan, not the rabbit, but

rather a creature nearly resembling it, which abounds in Judea,

Palestine, and Arabia, and is called by Dr. Shaw daman Israel,

and by Mr. Bruce ashkoko. As this creature nearly resembles the

rabbit, with which Spain anciently abounded, Bochart supposes

that the Phoenicians might have given it the name of

spaniah, from the multitude of shephanim (or spanim,

as others pronounce it) which were found there. Hence the emblem

of Spain is a woman sitting with a rabbit at her feet. See a

coin of Hadrian in Scheuchzer.
