2 And if thy brother be not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him not, then thou shalt bring it unto thine own house, and it shall be with thee until thy brother seek after it, and thou shalt restore it to him again.
3 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's, which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.
6 If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young:
17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city.
19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.
24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Matthew Henry's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 Bible commentary...
Of humanity towards brethren. (1-4) Various precepts. (5-12) Against impurity. (13-30)1-4 If we duly regard the golden rule of "doing to others as we would they should do unto us," many particular precepts might be omitted. We can have no property in any thing that we find. Religion teaches us to be neighbourly, and to be ready to do all good offices to all men. We know not how soon we may have occasion for help.
5-12 God's providence extends itself to the smallest affairs, and his precepts do so, that even in them we may be in the fear of the Lord, as we are under his eye and care. Yet the tendency of these laws, which seem little, is such, that being found among the things of God's law, they are to be accounted great things. If we would prove ourselves to be God's people, we must have respect to his will and to his glory, and not to the vain fashions of the world. Even in putting on our garments, as in eating or in drinking, all must be done with a serious regard to preserve our own and others' purity in heart and actions. Our eye should be single, our heart simple, and our behaviour all of a piece.
13-30 These and the like regulations might be needful then, and yet it is not necessary that we should curiously examine respecting them. The laws relate to the seventh commandment, laying a restraint upon fleshly lusts which war against the soul.

Whenever Deut 22 5 is discussed the main contention is usually women and trousers Well God s words were given to take care of the past present and future which ought to be obeyed to the later Now the devil and his agent on assignment in making sure this instruction is not obey come up with what the call ladies trousers Why didn t the come up with men s skirts No they cannot do that reason is that women are their target as tools of SEDUCTION

Deuteronomy 22 5 is just part of that If we hold to 22 5 then we need to hold to 22 11 22 5 is talking to cross dressers and homosexuality Lets not destroy the church from within on small things like this Lets just pray for one another and let God do the rest Show love one to another

Is it not clear that to everyone that we are not under the Law but we still have to live by the ten comandments if we take one verse and make it such an issue to try to control what our women wear is it not pants that is the issue here pants wern t even invented yet Ithink that homosexuality was really the issue here its been around as long as there s been sin men trying to be women and women trying tobe men looking like the opposite sex and laying with the same sex is both an abomination to God

Faustin's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 2/06/2014, 3:36am...
The bible says in the book of Genesis that after the fall, he slew a lamb and He clothed them, I am sure that what Deut22,5; 1Peter3,1-6 and 1Tim2,9-15 are just manifestation of what was done in the garden, God isn't a controversial God but He knows why He is saying so!!! Look around you how women are portraying themselves as "Sex appeal" with their tight and squeezed jean and legging? Do you think they are godly like that? I am not sure according to the word, they just look like sexual tool and you don't even desire marry such women unless for sexual avidity! Lord have mercy because the word of God prone holiness and that is the only thing people are afraid of and by the way they want to dilute the word! Also weak pulpit, those that are there for money making will never speak the truth, afraid to loose their money they make out of church goers! Only a true child of God will recognise the word without doubting it!!! God isn't a "theological entity, bible school or bishop" He interprets his own word and give it to those that yearn for the truth! Shalom
Nkopeti's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 1/23/2014, 7:35am...
Beloved, every sound Christian believes the Bible to be the word of God. It would therefore be dangerous if the totality of the scriptures is not accepted. It is even more disastrous when sentiments and selfish interest are used to interpret and teach the words of the living God whose standard and principle will never changed. Duet.22 : 5 is very clear in all translations and should not be subjected to any canal argument , except for cheap 'pastors' who are after quantity and not quality. This is more worrisome in today's Christianity.
