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.

Read Galatians 3:19-29. The first point is that we are no longer under the law. The law was given for a reason as the scriptural reference states. That aside, pants never existed as at the time when this law was given. I've never come across any portion of the scripture where God assigned pants to be a males dressing. Also Read Galatians 5:13. Ye have been called to liberty ; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. So you clearly see that it's about the state of your heart and you are clearly no longer under the bondage of the law. Gal 3:10. Nuff said.

the creation of man and woman was not for clothing (why would God even make man and woman) clothing was created for them in the garden after their eyes were opened. and while you are certainly entitled to your opinion, no one in biblical days wore pants. The bible is full of references on "robes". Ikings 22:10 22:30 2chron. 18:9 18:29 luke7 20:46 rev. 6:11 7:9 7:13 7:14. I personally know women who only wear dresses and keep their hair long, they really love the Lord. i also know women who have very short hair, who also love the Lord. Samson had long hair...Judges 13-16. Blessings!
Zachsmom's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 11/25/2013, 10:27am...
I think women should wear dresses/skirts all the time and and not even cut their hair to me it symbolizes feminimity. For example if you see a man and woman standing side by side both with pants and t-shirt on and both of their hair chopped off and they are standing with their backs facing you. How would you tell them apart? You wouldnt be able to and if he wanted the women to dress and look like men, then why would he even create men and women. My opinion is mine just like everybody else has them and it might not mean much, but just sit and think about it. God bless.

If Aaron wears skirt, jesus wears gown.Ask yourself what deut 22;5 is talking about, obviously not physical clothing.let the holy spirit be our guard.
Abimbola Olalere Alalade's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment on 11/18/2013, 3:06am...
In the old testament God dealt with His people by giving them laws through a human vessel, but in the new testament the Spirit of truth, the Holy Spirit, indwells us to teach us all things that pertain to Godliness and truth. Having this at the back of our hearts, I will say that every true child of God who is heavenly minded, having the spirit of God will not put on any thing that would make him/her become abominable before God.
What is the purpose of dressing? One, to cover our nakedness, Two, To be decent and moderate and be presentable. 2Cor,5:17 , If any man be in Christ .........Rom.12:1-2, I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God........1John2:15-18,28.
Why do you put on what you are wearing? To cause others to stumble? To entice men or women? To show off? For these reasons and much more alike do the unconverted souls dress but not the heaven bound saints waiting for the appearing of the King of kings and the Lord of lords who will judge the quick and the dead at his appearing. Make sure you are one of these elects of the Lord.
Peter andortan's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 10/29/2013, 6:22am...
My brethren, the totality of this gospel we preach is that we shall all comform to the image of his dear son jesus christ. Then, we made it.Going by the Deut 22:5 i will like us to think as christ like over certain issued like these.Truely speaking our God is great God and full of wisdom, he's keeping us quiet because we didnt want to take the matter back to him who is the founder of it from the biginning.From the above comment i saw alot of self interest in many people veiw but the truth is that God will not break his word to please man.That shall put on what pertaining to but sex,who God was refering to,what was the bone of contetion,did God specifically pin point us that this what belong to and this to the woman or did women and men went to hid under this scripture to do evil.what i know is that the physical feature of a woman and man are not thesame therefore their compulsore are not thesame.Law is physical that most be kept but trut and Grace are spiritual which without the power of the holy spirit we can not get it right.Now as we go to God with certain issued let therefore go to God withDeut 22:5 for more understanding that will heal the heart of millions christian.God bless us all.
