Deuteronomy Chapter 22
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.

According to this scripture, date and time one must ask what the attire of men and women was. We certainly know trousers, pants, or breeches were not worn as an outer garment by neither gender. They wore robes that were precisely design for each gender. In fact, breeches were used as an under garment and were first mentioned in Exdous Chapter 28 42 instructions that were given to Moses by God that breeches should be wore under the Priest s robe, to cover his nakedness. Otherwise, I cannot recall any scriptures in the bible that s dealing with pants breeches as outer clothing. Example gird up your lions , was a phrase used throughout the bible for many reasons, however, literally it meant for one to take his robe , pull it from the back looping it between the legs to the front, then secure the hemmed end of the robe with a belt tightly around the waist usually as soldier prepared for war namely Israel. Securing the robe not pants in place enabled the soldier to move freely. Now exactly, what does the Deut. 22 5 means? Since the scripture is speaking on women forbidden to wear male clothes and male forbidden to wear female clothes and calls it an abomination disgrace hatred in the eyesight of God. I m lead to believe that the Holy Spirit is speaking on homosexuality also known as cross dressing. This scripture truly lays open and exposes the hatred God has for homosexual acts not the person John 3 16 for God so love the world . and Romans 5 8 While we were yet sinners Jesus died for us . So He doesn t hate the people and we shouldn t either we should pray that the Gospel of Christ touch their lives. If the Holy Spirit convicts one s heart for wearing pants, then He s dealing with that individual, however, if another believer wear pants in moderation and the Holy Spirit doesn t convict that person, then the bible says don t look down and discourage the believer. It s the heart of man, which will be judge before God and the only thing will matter in the end is . Did He trust and believe the Finished Work on the Cross by Christ . For salvation is wrapped up and tangled into Jesus Christ and Him Crucified! For all of you jeans wearers wear them with moderation remember you are a new creature in Christ Jesus, so the way you formerly wore clothes it should be no more, but the new man at all times should represent Christ . And yes, in a nice pair of jeans or slacks of your own gender.

Although the motive may not be intentionally seductive, but remember what it says in Mathew 5 28 "but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart ". It says he has already committed adultery WITH her. That means she has SINNED with him. That is just the reality of it. let us try to be BLAMELESS as it says in Philippians 2 15. So that when we meet the Lord one day and he tells us this man lust after you at so and so time while on earth, he wont say "she seduced me, I could see her shape, her underwear lining ". I pray that the Lord help us because this is a very controversial issue, and it is so sad the body of Christ is split apart from head to toe. The world is comming to an end, please "Seek the LORD and His strength Seek His face continually " Psalm 105 4. God be with us !

Jarrod, it is true the law of Moses condoned stoning as a punishment for breaking some of the "laws " but when Jesus came the law was fulfilled and our sins were and are covered by His Blood. 1 Timothy 2 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus John 8 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Jarrod Swan's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment on 9/11/2014, 6:45am...
Stoning is condoned at least four times in Deut. 22, with one of the instances pertaining to rape victims who didn 't scream loud enough 23 24 . I have trouble reconciling my conception of a loving, caring, God with someone who would condone such terrible things. Any thoughts?
Daniel's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 9/06/2014, 5:47pm...
Deuteronomy 22 5. I believe it means a man should not wear clothings that belong to a woman be it trousers,shirts,vests,etc. Thousands of years ago,trousers did not exist. There were gowns overalls which both men and women wore but they are known to be women 's outfit now. I would just advice we abstain from things that can make people sin like women wear seductive tight fitting pants or skirts ,men wearing loosed shirts and so on. May the Holy Spirit help us in understanding the word of God better. Amen
