22:27 The damsel cried - Which is in that case to be presumed; charity obliging us to believe the best, 'till the contrary be manifest.

22:29 Fifty shekels - Besides the dowry, as Philo, the learned Jew notes, which is here omitted, because that was customary, it being sufficient here to mention what was peculiar to this case. His wife - If her father consented to it.
