The Original Definition of Adultery

Lev 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Note that the words "another" and "even he" are italicized, which means that they were added by the translators.

Lev 20:10 And the man376 that834 committeth adultery5003 with854 another man's376 wife,802 even he that834 committeth adultery5003 with854 his neighbor's7453 wife,802 the adulterer5003 and the adulteress5003 shall surely be put to death.4191, 4191

Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

If "adultery" in this sentence meant the individual private act of men having sex with other men's wives, then it would have read:

"And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding men of Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also."

The fact that it refers to public actions by the entire race suggests that it's not a private act of men having sex with other men's wives, but rather miscegenation of that race with other races

The following is a reference to the Kingdom of Israel, rather than individuals:

Eze 23:37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bore unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them.

The Century Dictionary, Copyright 1911

1. Violation of the marriage bed; carnal connection of a married person with any other than the lawful spouse; in a more restricted sense, the wrong by a wife which introduces or may introduce a spurious offspring into the family.  In some jurisdictions the law makes adultery a crime, in some only a civil injury.  In England, formerly, it was punished by a fine & imprisonment, and in Scotland it was frequently made a capital offense.  In Great Britain at the present day, it is punishable only by ecclesiastical censure; but when committed by the wife, it is regarded as a civil injury, and forms the ground of an action of damages against the paramour.   Contrary to previous general opinion, it has recently been held in the United States that a wife may have a corresponding action against a woman who seduces away her husband.  In England and Scotland the husband's recovery of damages against the paramour can now be had only by joining him with the wife in an action for divorce.

Blackstone's Commentaries

In case of divorce a mensa et thoro, the law allows alimony to the wife: which Is that allowance which is made to a woman for her support out of the husband's estate: being settled at the discretion of the ecclesiastical judge, on consideration of all the circumstances of the case. This is sometimes called her estovers; for which, if he refuses payment, there is (besides the ordinary process of excommunication) a writ at common law de estoveris habendis, in order to recover it.l It is generally proportioned to the rank and quality of the parties. But, in case of elopement, and living with an adulterer, the law allows her no alimony.

Encyclopedia Britannica

Sexual relations by a married person with someone other than the spouse. Prohibitions or taboos against adultery, written or customary, constitute part of the marriage code of virtually every society. Indeed, adultery seems to be as universal and, in some instances, as common as marriage.

The Code of Hammurabi (18th century BC) in Babylonia provided a punishment of death by drowning for adultery. In ancient Greece and in Roman law, the offending female spouse could be killed, but men were not severely punished. The Jewish, Isla mic, and Christian traditions are unequivocal in their condemnation of adultery. The culpability of men as well as women is more explicitly expressed in the New Testament and the Talmud than in the Old Testament or the Qur'an.

The attitude toward adultery within different cultures varies widely. Whereas the traditional Senufo (Senoufo) and Bambara of West Africa, for instance, tacitly condone the honour crime of killing the adulterous female spouse and her companion, among the Kaka in Cameroon, a man may have sexual relations with the wives of certain relatives with impunity. Wife lending is part of Eskimo hospitality. Nonincestuous adultery is permitted by many South Sea island peoples, and among certain Pueblo Indian societies adultery is so common that it is tolerated if kept secret.

Under ancient Hindu law, marriage was an indissoluble sacrament, and not even a wife's adultery could sever the legal tie and dissolve the marriage act. In the modern Hindu code, divorce will be granted to either offended party, but not for occasional violations; the spouse must actually be living in adultery with another.

In western Europe and North America, adultery is a ground for divorce. The diffusion of this principle, as well as Western notions of egalitarianism and modern expectations of mutual emotional support in marriage, has resulted in unprecedented pressure for equal marital rights for women in traditional African and Southeast Asian societies.

In many eastern European countries, adultery does not in itself constitute grounds for divorce; both partners must testify, under the principle of “general breakdown,” that the offense results in the decline of those feelings of which marital unity is composed.

Bouvier's Law Dictionary

ADULTERY, criminal law. From ad and alter, another person; a criminalconversation, between a man married to another woman, and a woman married to another man, or a married and unmarried person. The married person is guilty of adultery, the unmarried of fornication. (q.v.) 1 Yeates, 6; 2 Dall. 124; but see 2 Blackf. 318.

2. The elements of this crime are, 1st, that there shall be an unlawful carnal connexion; 2dly, that the guilty party shall at the time be married; 3dly, that he or she shall willingly commit the offence; for a woman who has been ravished against her will is not guilty of adultery. Domat, Supp. du Droit Public, liv. 3, t. 10, n. 13.

3. The punishment of adultery, in the United States, generally, is fine and imprisonment.

4. In England it is left to the feeble hands of the ecclesiastical courts to punish this offence.

5. Adultery in one of the married persons is good cause for obtaining a divorce by the innocent partner. See 1 Pick. 136; 8 Pick. 433; 9 Mass. 492: 14 Pick. 518; 7 Greenl. 57; 8 Greenl. 75; 7 Conn. 267 10 Conn. 372; 6 Verm. 311; 2 Fairf. 391 4 S. & R. 449; 5 Rand. 634; 6 Rand. 627; 8 S. & R. 159; 2 Yeates, 278, 466; 4 N.

6. As to proof of adultery, see 2 Greenl. Sec. 40, Marriage.

AVOWTRY, Eng. law. The crime of adultery.  [also called "criminal conversation"].

FORNICATION, crim. law. The unlawful carnal knowledge of an unmarried person with another, whether the latter be married or unmarried. When the party is married, the offence, as to him or her, is known by the name of adultery. (q.v.) Fornication is, however, included in every case of adultery, as a larceny is included in robbery. 2 Hale's P. C. 302.

SOLICITATION OF CHASTITY. The asking a person to commit adultery or fornication.

2. This of itself, is not an indictable offence. Salk. 382; 2 Chit. Pr. 478. The contrary doctrine, however, has been held in Connecticut. 7 Conn. Rep. 267.

3. In England, the bare solicitation of chastity is punished in the ecclesiastical courts. 2 Chit. Pr. 478. Vide Str. 1100; 10 Mod. 384; Sayer, 33; 1 Hawk. ch. 74; 2 Ld. Raym. 809.

4. The civil law punished arbitrarily the person who solicited the chastity of another. Dig. 47, 11, 1. Vide To persuade; 3 Phillim. R. 508.

American men don't ask much of their women.  They know that men constitute 95% of our ponderous prison population and women only 5%, even though women are 58 to 234 times more likely to murder their children than fathers--but they do nothing.  They know that the high accident rate of women causes the deaths of an additional 6,200 men annually in traffic accidents, giving us a motor vehicle fatality rate almost three times higher than England--but they do nothing.  They know that women pilots are four times more likely than men pilots to crash--but they do nothing. They know that women are five times more likely than men to be acquitted of the same crime, that they are 16% less likely to be convicted if tried for the same crime, that men receive prison sentences 2.7 times longer than women for the same crime, that wives are twice as likely as husbands to initiate a contract to kill their spouse--but they do nothing.  They know that American men are 1,000 times more likely than Japanese men or Italian men or Greek men to be accused, tried, and convicted of rape, and that half of those convicted don't even match the DNA evidence from the "crime scene"--but they do nothing.  They know that women own 65% of the wealth in the nation even though men earn 43% more than women, and that men are 99.993% of the battle deaths in the wars we have fought, and women only 0.007%--but they are content with that.

life.jpg (15971 bytes) But in the name of "women's rights" they killed 40 million babies in the womb, 20 million of whom were females.

Observe the fingers of a baby in the womb holding the finger of a surgeon, and then tell me about "my body, my choice".

As bad as that is, far worse is cheating on their husbands so frequently that 12.6 million children are subjected to the shame, social pathologies, and stigma of not even being biologically linked to their own putative fathers.

And worse than that?  12.6 million men [not fathers] who were STUPID enough to trust women enough to marry them and believe that their oaths to God to honor and obey them would be upheld, who were forced to pay to raise their mailman's or gardener's children while they were robbed of their heritage and their heirs.

If this 12.6 million adulterous women were to be punished as the Holy Bible demands that they be and as they should be to bring this practice to a halt, rather than men being 95% of two million prison inmates, women would be 86% of the 14.6 million inmates--except that punishing wives who commit adultery REDUCES crime, and prevents women from committing adultery, and would leave far less than 2 million men in prison.


The Strong's definitions of the Hebrew word "na^'aph" and the Greek word "moicheuo�" from which the English word "adultery" was translated reveal the real meaning:




A primitive root; to commit adultery; figuratively to apostatize: - adulterer (-ess), commit (-ing) adultery, woman that breaketh wedlock.




From G3432; to commit adultery: - commit adultery.

And if "adultery" were supposed to mean "sex with a neighbor's wife", and if you were restricted to only ten laws, then why would the Tenth Commandment repeat itself?:

"You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

"Thou shalt not covet your neighbor's wife" by itself is all that's required to get the message across.

"Thou shalt not commit adultery" means "thou shalt not polute the White Christian Israelite Race".

The question isn't what the English word "adultery" meant in Shakespeare's time.  The question is what the original Hebrew word "naaph" meant, and what Christ meant when He referred to the Israelites.

The Holy Bible is the history of the Israelites' struggle for survival, all the way from Adam, to the scattered Twelve Tribes of Israel at the time Christ was born, to the descendants of the Israelites today.

Racial purity was so important to the Israelites that they "put away" their own children, when an Israelite married a non-Israelite.  It was so important to Christ that he continually admonished His Twelve Disciples to go only "to the lost sheep of the house of Israel":

"These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go
not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the  Samaritans enter
ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And  as ye
go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand."  Matthew 10:5-9

He said in reply, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Matthew 15:24

Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!" John 1:47

I ask then, Did God reject his people? May it never be! For I also am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin, Romans 11:1

"who are Israelites; whose is the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service, and the promises; of whom are the fathers, and from whom is Christ as concerning the flesh, who is over all, God, blessed forever. Amen", Romans 9:4-5

"Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel," he said, "Because He has not forgotten His people but has effected redemption for them", Luke 1:68

With this emphasis on racial purity, it's inevitible that one of the most important ten laws to the Israelites would have been a proscription against intermarriage.  iow, it makes no sense that the Ten Commandments would have repeated the proscription against "coveting your neighbor's wife" twice, while completely ignoring this most important Israelite law, one that appears to be even more important than several of the other Ten Commandments.

This Oxford English Dictionary definition for "adultery" isn't convincing.  It raises more questions than it answers.  When the jews replied to Jesus' charge that they were not descendants of Abraham, they replied:  " We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God".  So it's clear that it's the word "fornication", not "adultery", which means to have sex outside of marriage, otherwise they would have said " We be not born of adultery; we have one Father, even God":





From G4203; harlotry (including adultery and incest); figuratively idolatry: - fornication.

The jews above weren't claiming that they weren't born of harlotry.  They were making a direct reference to the state of the marriages of their ancestors.  So why would two different Greek words mean exactly the same thing?  If they did mean exactly the same thing, then why it wouldn it have been repeated twice in the following:

Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Here, "adultery" is translated from the Greek word "moicheia":




From G3431; adultery: - adultery.

It's the word "porneia" which means "sex outside of marriage", which means the word "moicheia" must be a proscription against interracial marriages:

Mat 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Since Roe vs. Wade was passed against the majority will of the American population, against the good senses of the 253 million Christians in this country, contrary to common sense and decency, against God's will, in violation of the teachings of the Holy Bible and every Pope for the last two millennia, against the principles of most other world religions, in contradiction to the preachers and pastors and priests of this country, and to the delight of the mental health workers and abortion doctors whose businesses skyrocketed:

  1. 130 million Ameican women have gotten pregnant.

  2. 40 million American women have had "abortions" [read: murdered babies in one of the most sacred environments known to man].

  3. 90 million have given birth.

  4. 27 million have given birth to children out of wedlock.

  5. 63 million have given birth to children in families.

  6. 12.6 million wives have given birth to children who are not the biological offspring of the husbands of those families.


THAT bears repeating: 12.6 million wives have given birth to children who are not the biological offspring of the husbands of those families.

12.6 million wives have given birth to children who are not the biological offspring of the husbands of those families!

The monetary cost of raising a child from birth to 18 years of age, not including investments of time and emotion, not including the social trauma to both children and fathers who eventually discover the treacherous act of adultery which led to this situation, not including the cost of the social pathology laid on the rest of society by increased imprisonment, psychiatric and health care, and educational devolvement, is conservatively $86,400 ($4,800 per year).  Some sources estimate that one third of American children aren't the biological offspring of the husbands of those "intact families", but using a figure of only 12.6 million, the monetary cost of adultery to fathers themselves (not including the portion of their tax dollars which are funding this social pathology) is $1.1 trillion.

Compare this to the economic loss due to the 728,313 homicides in the US in the last four decades.  Using the guideline that civil engineers use (if a project is estimated to cost more than $50,000 per potential life saved theb it's not economically viable), homicides over this period of time cost $36.4 billion, meaning that the monetary cost of adultery exceeded that of homicide by 30 times.   In addition, at least a quarter of those 728,313 homicides, or 182,078 can be traced directly to this high rate of adultery and illegitimacy.

Upholding adultery laws, as most other Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, and Hindu nations do, would have two major benefits:

  1. It would reduce this high illegitimacy rate in intact families by perhaps 90%, reducing this monetary cost by $990 billion,

  2. Over the next four decades, at least 182,078 American lives could be saved from homicide, saving another $91 billion.
