Deuteronomy 22:14-15

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!” 22:15 Then the father and mother of the young woman must produce the evidence of virginity 4  for the elders of the city at the gate.

Deuteronomy 22:17

Context
22:17 Moreover, he has raised accusations of impropriety by saying, ‘I discovered your daughter was not a virgin,’ but this is the evidence of my daughter’s virginity!” The cloth must then be spread out 5  before the city’s elders.

Deuteronomy 22:20

Context

22:20 But if the accusation is true and the young woman was not a virgin,

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 sn In light of v. 17 this would evidently be blood-stained sheets indicative of the first instance of intercourse. See E. H. Merrill, Deuteronomy (NAC), 302-3.

5 tn Heb “they will spread the garment.”
