Adultery Bible Verses

"Do Not Commit Adultery", Luke 18:20

Adultery Bible verses begin with the 7th of the 10 commandments written with God's own finger in stone -

Exodus 20:14
(King James Version)

14. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Deuteronomy 5:18 (King James Version)

18. Neither shalt thou commit adultery.

A few Bible verses indicate adultery was originally punishable by death; and adultery still is in at least one country -

Leviticus 20:10
(King James Version)

10. And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Deuteronomy 22:22 (King James Version)

22. If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

These adultery Bible verses explain that adultery is not just a physical act, but a sin that happens first in mind -

(King James Version)

27. Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

28. But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
