1 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them again unto thy brother.

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.

4 Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt surely help him to lift them up again.

5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

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:

7 But thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the young to thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days.

8 When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence.

9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.

10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.

11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.

13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,

14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:

15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:

16 And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;

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.

18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;

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.

20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:

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.

22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

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.

25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die:

26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.

28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

30 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor discover his father's skirt.

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.

Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

Adam answered and replied to God saying 'the wife you gave me, when God asked him hast thou eaten of the tree I instructed you not to? In the case of Due. 22:5, there was and there's still a clear specifications in the issues of man not adoring himself with women apparel and vice versa. God knew human mentality that His word can be questioned and He spelled this law out through moses. It was to be observed physically, mentally, emotionally and otherwise, unlike Adam telling God ' this wife you gave me,' meaning that God should have instructed Eve also. God is Truth.

 


Terkimbi's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment on 7/28/2015, 5:32am...

It's stated in OT The woman shall not wear that which partaineth on to a man, neither shall a man put on a waman's garment in way A woman must not wear men's clothing nor a man wearwomen's clothing : for all that do so are abomination onto the LORD thy God. Brethren devil is trying to manipulate the mind of people to bring styles of clothing and call it unisex making people feel nothing wrong looking modestly in it, if it is right Deuteronomy 22 should have tould us in oternitive we should wear unisex or modenise the opposite sex clothing to fit our body shape and be wearing. Lets not deceive our selves but be sensitive to rebuke devil when his trying to drop idears that are contrary to the will of God in our hearts, stick to what the bible says and dont look for any way to contradict it for such is the strategy of the devil to distroy humanity. His work is to still, to kill and to distroy. So rebuke him let not be you as you do so God will bless you and help you to understand more as you study to know about Him.

 


Sabbatismos A.'s Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 7/27/2015, 3:23am...

Everyone seems to pretend not to understand the post by Abbas James, where he said God speaks before things happen. None is seeing that someone here is implying that God gave the command to Israel because of the heathen nations around. Even the person didn't bother telling us what was meant by the "pertaineth", he just finagled away from it. Another appealed to "Women of God" who wear what they like and do great things... someone even said it wasn't addressed in the NT. Was the Bible supposed to be "NT re-addressing what is addressed in the OT"? Is the NT the "two edged sword" of God Almighty? Why is none defining the "pertaineth" and the "abomination"? And, why do we disagree that unisex clothing was never started by Christians-strictly defined? Where is a woman seen listed among those who go to war in Scriptures, and what weapons were they to use that might have differed from that of men? Which weapons do American women armies use? When did women start going to war?... Why are we deceiving ourselves, modifying the innerrant and unmistakable Word? Let me ask this, pls: now that a woman can be modestly adorned in women trousers, pls, how can a man be modestly adorned in male skirts? Thanks for your answer. Greetings from Nigeria.
