SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:1 Â¶ No verás el buey de tu hermano, o su cordero, perdidos, y te retirarás de ellos; los volverás sin falta a tu hermano.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 22:1 Verse 1. Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray] The same humane, merciful, and wise regulations which we met with before, Exod. xxiii. 4, 5, well calculated to keep in remembrance the second grand branch of the law of God, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. A humane man cannot bear to see even an ass fall under his burden, and not endeavour to relieve him; and a man who loves his neighbour as himself cannot see his property in danger without endeavouring to preserve it.
These comparatively small matters were tests and proofs of matters great in themselves, and in their consequences. See the note on "Exod. xxiii. 4".
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Thou shall not see thy brother’s ox or his sheep go astray , etc.] Or “driven away” f313 ; frightened and starved away from the herd or from the flock by a wolf or dog; and the ox and sheep are put for every other creature a man has, as camels, asses, etc. which last sort is after mentioned; and a brother means not one in the natural relation of kindred only, for it is supposed, in the next verse, that he might not only be at a distance, but unknown; nor by religion only, or one of the commonwealth or church of the Jews, for what is enjoined is a piece of humanity the law of nature requires and directs unto, and is even to be done to enemies, ( Exodus 23:4) and hide thyself from them; make as if he did not see them, and so be entirely negligent of them, and takes no care and show no concern about them, but let them go on wandering from the herd and flock from whence they were driven, and to which they cannot find the way of themselves: thou shalt in any case bring them again to thy brother : to his herd or flock, or to his house, and deliver them into his own hands, or to the care of his servants.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-4 - If we duly regard the golden rule of "doing to others as we would the should do unto us," many particular precepts might be omitted. We can have no property in any thing that we find. Religion teaches us to be neighbourly, and to be ready to do all good offices to all men. We know not how soon we may have occasion for help.
