Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 21:9

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 21:9


21:7 They shall answer - To the priests who shall examine them. This blood - This about which the present enquiry is made: or this which is here present: for it is thought the corps of the slain man was brought into the same place where the heifer was slain. Nor have we seen or understood how or by whom this was done.

21:8 Forgiven - Though there was no mortal guilt in this people, yet there was a ceremonial uncleanness in the land, which was to be expiated and forgiven.

21:10 Enemies - Of other nations, but not of the Canaanites.

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|.
