Deuteronomy 7:3 -- “Nor shall you make marriages with them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son.”

“If a man cohabits with a heathen woman, he is punished by zealots.”* The status of children of a mixed marriage, according to Jewish law, is determined exclusively by the faith of the mother. Thus if the mother is Jewish and the father non-Jewish, the children are considered in every respect Jewish, and vice versa.**
