The Bible in Its Traditions

Deuteronomy 22:22–23:1

M S Sam
G
V

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

22  And if a man be found lying with a woman married to a man, ye shall kill them both, the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou remove the wicked one out of Israel.

22  If a man sleeps with the wife of another, then they shall both die, that is, the adulterer and the adulteress. And so shall you take away the evil from Israel.

23  If there be a damsel that is a virgin betrothed unto a man, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

23  And if there be a young damsel espoused to a man, and a man should have found her in the city and have lain with her;

23  If a man has betrothed a girl who is a virgin, and if someone finds her in the city and he lies with her,

M V S Sam
G

24  then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die: the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife; so thou shalt put away the evil from the midst of thee.

24  ye shall bring them both out to the gate of their city, and they shall be stoned with stones, and they shall die; the damsel, because she cried not in the city; and the man, because he humbled his neighbour’s spouse: so shalt thou remove the evil one from yourselves.

M Sam
G S
V

25  But if the man find the damsel that is betrothed in the field, and the man take hold of her, and lie with her; then the man only that lay with her shall die.

25  But if a man find in the field a damsel that is betrothed, and he should force her and lie with her, ye shall slay the man that lay with her only.

25  But if a man discovers, in the countryside, a girl who has been betrothed, and, apprehending her, he lies with her, then he alone shall die.

M Sam
G
V

26  But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death; for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter.

26  And the damsel has not committed a sin worthy of death; as if a man should rise up against his neighbour, and slay him, so is this thing;

26  The girl shall suffer nothing, nor is she guilty unto death. For just as a robber rises up against his brother and slays his life, so also did the girl suffer greatly.

M S Sam
G
V

27  For he found her in the field; the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.

27  because he found her in the field; the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to help her.

27  She was alone in the field. She cried out, and there was no one nearby, who might deliver her.

28  If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, that is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

28  And if any one should find a young virgin who has not been betrothed, and should force her and lie with her, and be found,

28  If a man find a girl who is a virgin, who does not have a betrothal, and, taking her, he lies with her, and the matter is brought to judgment,

29  then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he hath humbled her; he may not put her away all his days.

29  the man who lay with her shall give to the father of the damsel fifty silver didrachms, and she shall be his wife, because he has humbled her; he shall never be able to put her away.

29  then he who slept with her shall give to the father of the girl fifty shekels of silver, and he shall have her as a wife, because he has humiliated her. He cannot dismiss her, throughout all the days of his life.

M G S Sam
V

30  A man shall not take his father's wife, and shall not uncover his father's skirt.

30  No man shall take his father’s wife, nor remove her covering.”

23:1  He that is crushed or maimed in his privy parts shall not enter into the assembly of YHWH.

“A eunuch, one whose testicles have been debilitated or cut off, or whose penis has been cut off, shall not enter into the church of the Lord.

NO adulterer shall enter into the assembly of the LORD.
