In this chapter are various laws, concerning care of a neighbour's
cattle gone astray or in distress, and of anything lost by him,
\\#De 22:1-4\\, forbidding one sex to wear the apparel, of another,
\\#De 22:5\\ and the taking away of the dam with the young found in a
bird's nest, \\#De 22:6,7\\, ordering battlements to be made in a new
house, \\#De 22:8\\, prohibiting mixtures in sowing, ploughing, and in
garments, \\#De 22:9-11\\, requiring fringes on the four quarters of
a garment, \\#De 22:12\\, fining a man that slanders his wife, upon
producing the tokens of her virginity, \\#De 22:13-19\\ but if these
cannot be produced, then orders are given that she be put to death,
\\#De 22:20-21\\, then follow other laws, punishing with death the
adulterer and adulteress, and one that hath ravished a betrothed
damsel, \\#De 22:22-27\\, amercing a person that lies with a virgin not
betrothed and she consenting, and obliging him to marry her, and not
