Bible: Deut. 22:14-17
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. 22:16 The young woman’s father must say to the elders, “I gave my daughter to this man and he has rejected 5 her. 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 6 before the city’s elders.
