And, any man, who committeth adultery with the wife of any other man, he that committeth adultery with the wife of his neighbour shall surely be put to death - the adulterer, and the adulteress.
then shall they bring forth the damsel into the entrance of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die, because she hath wrought wickedness in Israel, by committing unchastity in her father's house, - so shalt thou consume the wicked thing out of thy midst.
