The Betroth of the Lord - Deuteronomy 22

Thou shalt not see the brother’s ox or his sheep go  astray, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case  bring them again unto thy brother. Deuteronomy 22:1 

Deuteronomy 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. 

Deuteronomy 22:3 In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and  so shalt thou do with his raiment; and with all lost things of  thy brother’s, which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt  thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.  

Deuteronomy 22:4 Thou shalt not see thy brother’s ass or his ox fall  down by the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt  surely help him to lift them up again.  

Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth  unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment:  for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.  

Deuteronomy 22:6 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: 

Deuteronomy 22:7  But thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the  young to thee; that it may be well with thee, and that thou  mayest prolong thy days.  

Deuteronomy 22:8 When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt  make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood  upon thine house, if any man fall from thence.  

Deuteronomy 22:9 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds:  lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit  of thy vineyard, be defiled.  

Deuteronomy 22:10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass  together.    

Deuteronomy 22:11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts,  as of woollen and linen together.  

Deuteronomy 22:12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four  quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.  

Deuteronomy 22:13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and  hate her, 

Deuteronomy 22:14 And give occasions of speech against her,  and bring up an 
evil name upon her, and say, I took this  woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:   

Deuteronomy 22:15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother,  take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity  unto the elders of the city in the gate: 

Deuteronomy 22:16 And the  damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my  daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 

Deuteronomy 22:17  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. 

Deuteronomy 22:18 And  the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;  

Deuteronomy 22:19 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. 

Deuteronomy 22:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens  of virginity be not found for the damsel: 

Deuteronomy 22:21 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.  

Deuteronomy 22:22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to  an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man  that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put  away evil from Israel.  

Deuteronomy 22:23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an  husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;  

Deuteronomy 22:24 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 22:25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field,  and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only  that lay with her shall die: 

Deuteronomy 22:26 But unto the damsel thou  shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of  death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and  slayeth him, even so is this matter: 

Deuteronomy 22:27 For he found  her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there  was none to save her.  

Deuteronomy 22:28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is  not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they  be found; 

Deuteronomy 22:29 Then the man that lay with her shall give  unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she  shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not  put her away all his days.  

Deuteronomy 22:30 A man shall not take his father’s wife, nor  discover his father’s skirt.  KJV
