Deuteronomy 22* Of humanity towards brethren. (1-4) Various precepts. (5-12)Against impurity. (13-30)1-4 If we duly regard the golden rule of "doing to others as wewould they should do unto us," many particular precepts might beomitted. We can have no property in any thing that we find.Religion teaches us to be neighbourly, and to be ready to do allgood offices to all men. We know not how soon we may haveoccasion for help. 5-12 God's providence extends itself to the smallest affairs,and his precepts do so, that even in them we may be in the fearof the Lord, as we are under his eye and care. Yet the tendencyof these laws, which seem little, is such, that being foundamong the things of God's law, they are to be accounted greatthings. If we would prove ourselves to be God's people, we musthave respect to his will and to his glory, and not to the vainfashions of the world. Even in putting on our garments, as ineating or in drinking, all must be done with a serious regard topreserve our own and others' purity in heart and actions. Oureye should be single, our heart simple, and our behaviour all ofa piece. 13-30 These and the like regulations might be needful then, andyet it is not necessary that we should curiously examinerespecting them. The laws relate to the seventh commandment,laying a restraint upon fleshly lusts which war against thesoul.
