In the Midrash Rabbah (Devarim, chap. 15) the same story is
told, with this additional circumstance among others, that a
sacred respect was paid to the gates when the Temple was sacked
at the time of the Captivity. When the glorious vessels and
furniture of the Temple were being carried away into Babylon,
the gates, which were so zealous for the glory of God, were
buried on the spot (see Lam. ii. 9), there to await the
restoration of Israel. This romantic episode is alluded to in
the closing service for the Day of Atonement.

There are twenty-four species of unclean birds, but the clean birds are
innumerable.

THE TALMUD, _Chullin_, fol. 63, col. 2.
