Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 21:11

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 21:11


21:11 Hast a desire unto her - Or, hast taken delight in her: which may be a modest expression for lying with her, and seems probable, because it is said, #De 21:14|, that he had humbled her. And here seem to be two cases supposed, and direction given what to do in both of them, that he did desire to marry her, of which he speaks, #De 21:11 |- 13. that he did not desire this, of which he speaks, #De 21:14|.
