Deuteronomy 23:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"There is in the damsel no death-sin (i.e., no sin to be punished with death); but as when a man riseth against his neighbour and slayeth him, even so is this matter." In the open field the girl had called for help, but no one had helped her. It was therefore a forcible rape.
