347 - HAVING INTERCOURSE WITH ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE


Leviticus 18:20 -- “Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor's wife, to defile yourself with her.”
Leviticus 20:10 -- “The man who commits adultery with another man's wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.”

The Gemara of Sanhedrin says: “All are included in the terms “adulterer” and “adulteress”,* but Scripture excludes the daughter of a priest, teaching that she is to be burnt, and a betrothed maiden, teaching that she is to be stoned.”**

* As found in the verse: “The man who commits adultery with another man's wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.” (Leviticus 20:10)
** Sanh. 51 (Sonc. ed. p. 346)
