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.
Abbas James's Deuteronomy Chapter 22 comment about verse 5 on 5/03/2015, 3:05am...
what we should no is that God is a supreme God. He knows what will happen in years to come, that 's why he made this statement. Deut 22:5 . He also knew that Devil ll misunderstand His people. just obey it. Do not be deceived by fake pastors and Reverends. or you think God is not wise? He knows the implications of allowing that deut 22:5 . if He allows men to wear what belongs to women, and women to wear what belongs to men, that "fallen Queen " will hijack it to deceive His people. "read revelation 17 and 18 " to learn how this woman is ruling the unbelievers in this world. please tell the devil the one you have used me is enough, am not for you anymore. Remember, it 's only a fool that 's trying to adjust the words of God to suit himself instead of adjusting himself to the words. God bless you all.

People just have a wrong attitude towards God 's word. God 's word shouldn 't be modified to suit our needs. We are to adjust to the word of God. Here, the word is very clear. Save your soul by not disobeying God.

Let the Holy Ghost lead and direct your path ,when you find the one and only true God He will lay it on your heart through the Holy Ghost what you should and shouldn 't wear,remember what would Jesus do or say how would he dress today and how would He want his mother or sister to dress like. Pray just let Jesus in your heart,mind and soul. Pray for true directions in Jesus name
