Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 22:12

_ _ thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters — or, according to some eminent biblical interpreters, tassels on the coverlet of the bed. The precept is not the same as Numbers 15:38.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 22:5-12.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 22:12

Fringes — Or laces, or strings, partly to bring the commands of God to their remembrance, as it is expressed, Numbers 15:38, and partly is a public profession of their nation and religion, whereby they might be distinguished from strangers, that so they might be more circumspect to behave as became the people of God, and that they should own their religion before all the world. Thou coverest thyself — These words seem restrictive to the upper garment wherewith the rest were covered.
