RAPE OF AN ENGAGED WOMAN

Deuteronomy 22:25-27
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.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: 27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.
FORCE =
  • FOUND HER – unwilling meeting
  • WOMAN CRIES
  • NONE TO SAVE HER
“For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.”  
A woman must scream for help if she is going to be raped. If she can’t scream, she must tell someone once she has escaped.  Otherwise, it appears as if she was in one consent with the man that lay with her.  If the scriptures doesn’t indicate that the woman is being forced because she does not scream, than it is not rape.   THERE IS A COMMONLY MISTAKEN SCRIPTURES FOR RAPE…
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; 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.
(father has right of refusal to any man for his daughter, Deuteronomy 22:28 is speaking of a case when the father didn’t refuse.)
MY NOTES:
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 isn’t referring rape, because KEYWORDS of RAPE are MISSING, such as…
FORCE =
  • FOUND HER – unwilling meeting
  • WOMAN CRIES
  • NONE TO SAVE HER
What kind of father would approve his daughter to marry her rapist?
Deuteronomy 22 is saying the same thing as
Exodus 22:16-1716
And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife. 17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.
AGAIN, WOMAN WHO IS RAPED, WOULD SCREAM FOR HELP, especially TO CLEAR HERSELF OF ANY JUDGEMENT SHOULD SHE BE BETROTHE or MARRIED.

2 MORE CASES NOT RAPE:

CASE OF THE MARRIED WOMAN & HER LOVER

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.
KEYWORDS of RAPE are MiSSING, such as… FORCE =
  • FOUND HER – unwilling meeting
  • WOMAN CRIES
  • NONE TO SAVE HER

BETROTHE WOMAN & HER LOVER WHO IS NOT HER FIANCE

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;
[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.
KEYWORDS of RAPE are MiSSING, such as…
FORCE =
  • FOUND HER – unwilling meeting
  • WOMAN CRIES
  • NONE TO SAVE HER
“the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife:”
  • The Betrothe woman was not in an area alone, she had a chance to be saved if she was raped, but her lack of crying out proves she wasn’t raped.
  • We must be very careful not to say a scripture or law is speaking about rape, if there are no indications of the woman crying out or in an area alone with none to help.
