Deuteronomy 15:22
Treasury of Scripture

You shall eat it within your gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart.

the unclean

Deuteronomy 12:15,21,22 Notwithstanding you may kill and eat flesh in all your gates, whatever your soul lusts after...

the roe-buck Tzevee, in Arabic zaby, Chaldee and Syriac tavya, denotes the gazelle or antelope, so called from its stately beauty, as the word imports. In size it is smaller than the roe, of an elegant form, and it motions are light and graceful. It bounds seemingly without effort, and runs with such swiftness that few creatures can exceed it.

2 Samuel 2:18 And there were three sons of Zeruiah there, Joab, and Abishai, and Asahel: and Asahel was as light of foot as a wild roe.

Its fine eyes are so much celebrated as even to become a proverb; and its flesh is much esteemed for food among eastern nations, having a sweet, musky taste, which is highly agreeable to their palates.

1 Kings 4:23 Ten fat oxen, and twenty oxen out of the pastures, and an hundred sheep, beside harts, and roebucks, and fallow deer, and fatted fowl.

If to these circumstances we add, that they are gregarious, and common all over the East, whereas the {roe} is either not known at all, or else very rare in these countries, little doubt can remain that the gazelle and the roe is intended by the original word.
