Deuteronomy 22:14

Context
22:14 accusing her of impropriety 1  and defaming her reputation 2  by saying, “I married this woman but when I had sexual relations 3  with her I discovered she was not a virgin!”

Deuteronomy 22:19

Context
22:19 They will fine him one hundred shekels of silver and give them to the young woman’s father, for the man who made the accusation 4  ruined the reputation 5  of an Israelite virgin. She will then become his wife and he may never divorce her as long as he lives.

1 tn Heb “deeds of things”; NRSV “makes up charges against her”; NIV “slanders her.”

2 tn Heb “brings against her a bad name”; NIV “gives her a bad name.”

3 tn Heb “drew near to her.” This is another Hebrew euphemism for having sexual relations.

4 tn Heb “for he”; the referent (the man who made the accusation) has been specified in the translation to avoid confusion with the young woman’s father, the last-mentioned male.

5 tn Heb “brought forth a bad name.”
