Leviticus 18:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 You shall not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife,[a] defiling yourself with her.

Footnotes:

  1. 18:20 Adultery in the Hebrew Bible and the ancient Near East is intercourse between a married or betrothed woman and any male. In the Bible it is generally punishable by the death of both individuals (20:10; cf. Dt 22:22–27). Intercourse with an unmarried or unbetrothed woman is not prohibited but carries responsibilities and fines (cf. Ex 22:15–16; Dt 22:28–29). Cf. Lv 19:20–22.

Leviticus 20:10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

10 [a]If a man commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall be put to death.

Footnotes:

  1. 20:10–21 See 18:6–23 and notes there. It appears that the inclusion of various penalties in 20:10–21 accounts for the different order of the cases here compared to the order found in 18:6–23. The reason why the offenses in 20:10–21 carry different penalties, however, is not clear. Perhaps the cases in vv. 17–21 were considered slightly less serious, being condemned but not criminally prosecuted.
