Deuteronomy 22:4 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

In consequence of this accusation, all the men of the town were to stone him, so that he died. By this the right was taken away from the parents of putting an incorrigible son to death (cf. Proverbs 19:18), whilst at the same time the parental authority was fully preserved. Nothing is said about any evidence of the charge brought by the parents, or about any judicial inquiry generally. "In such a case the charge was a proof in itself. For if the heart of a father and mother could be brought to such a point as to give up their child to the judge before the community of the nation, everything would have been done that a judge would need to know" (Schnell, d. isr. Recht, p. 11). - On Deuteronomy 21:21, cf. Deuteronomy 13:6 and Deuteronomy 13:12.
