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.

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.

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

i like the scripture of Deuteronomy 22 5 that said woman should not wear man cloth and man should not wear woman own but there are some pastors saying some thing about pertain ETH they said that pertain ETH means that particular belonging to a particular person. so I am confuse.
