Being Unequally Yoked in Matters of Godly Importance
I think this Mitzvah can be divided into three different sections: agriculture, marriage, and idolatry.
The classical commentators tend to interpret the Scriptures of this mitzvah according to the plain meaning of their words and separate from each other, whereas I see them as connected by their common thread of forces pulling against each other. Clearly, the weight of this mitzvah's application is that, if we belong to God, we must not yoke ourselves with anything or anyone who is not of God.
Take a look at the Scriptures themselves, my interpration of them and what the classical commentators have to say on the subject.
