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.

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.

Nessa's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 6/13/2015, 2:44pm...
I am not convicted for wearing pants made for women. I am confused by what people say concerning, Deuteronomy 22:5. The Text is speaking about cross-dressing and homosexuality, there were no trousers at that , the difference in the clothing, was the fabric and sewing style one for male and one for female cloaks, robes, and tunics, just as it is today, with the styling of the clothes that we wear. The trousers for men are made in a different style as those of women. I think some people use this and other scriptures to lord over or control others. Dressing modestly is what matters, therefore a woman can dress modestly in women 's trousers just as she can in a dress, on the other hand women can dress in women 's clothing and it not look modest. Men can dress in men clothing and it look modest, on the other hand it could not look modest. Again Deuteronomy 22:5 is speaking about cross-dressing and homosexuality which is an abomination to God. Traditional and religious, I am neither, but I am spiritual and growing in the Lord, please let the Spirit of God guide me and others who truly want to please Him with our lives. If you can 't help please don 't hinder with your opinions, God is not the author of confusion, so study and explain, don 't just read and give an opinion. Be blessed.
