Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 24:4

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 24:4


24:4 May not - This is the punishment of his levity and injustice in putting her away without sufficient cause, which by this offer he now acknowledgeth. Defiled - Not absolutely, as if her second marriage were a sin, but with respect to her first husband, to whom she is as a defiled or unclean woman, that is, forbidden things; forbidden are accounted and called unclean, #Jud 13:7|, because they may no more be touched or used than an unclean thing. Thou shalt not cause the land to sin - Thou shalt not suffer such lightness to be practised, lest the people be polluted, and the land defiled and accursed by that means.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 24:4

  • Mishael on DOG SPIRITS on Deuteronomy 24:4
    Philippians 3:2 and Revelation 22:15

    Beware of dogs (Gal. 5:15), beware of evil workers, beware of the concision (Romans 2:28)

    Revelation 22:14-15.

    Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates Into the city.

    For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

    You have to stop and ponder on what real dogs do. Their noses are always where they shouldn't be, etc.

    It's stunning to ponder. I've worked with people like that. Run in packs; respect nothing; have to be the king of the pack.

    I said it was brutal.

    A spirit is a demon; dog spirit.
  • Mack Sims on Deuteronomy 24:4
    I would like to start out by thinking each and everyone who have shared and given me the time to read some of your comments. It's not every day that i take time to set and read bible verses and spend time with my father. although I pray and ask him to use me, I surrender, God is a merciful God and I want to spend more time with him and doing his will. just as you have given me a chance to comment there are other brothers and sisters out there, that God want to reach though us by commenting and connecting each of us to his will.

    Though God I can do all things
  • Leah - in Reply on Deuteronomy 24:4
    Yes I love reading what everyone has written here. We do need prayer from all..God help us all to have understanding of your word so we can walk like Jesus and knowing that no one comes to the father but through your son Jesus Christ. God give love to all. Thank you Leah
  • Carol on Deuteronomy 24:4
    Does this mean, in plain english, that a man or woman should not remarry their x if they slept with another person after the divorce because they are now defiled?
  • Divine Princess - in Reply on Deuteronomy 24:4
    Hi Carol, you are allowed to remarry the person should you wish. It is only when your ex had remarried after your divorce, get divorced again, that he MAY NOT marry you. So if there was no other marriage in between, you are allowed to remarry him. If will thus be your free will...Shux who ever does that is a much person than me...I could never !!!!! If you could live with it, it is no problem. Hope it helps Carol. All my Jesus love !!!!
