adultery is 1st mentioned in the 7th commandment.
"Thou shalt not commit adultery." Exodus 20:14
The second reference to adultery defines it and gives the penalty for it.
"And the man that committeth adultery with [another] man's wife, [even he] that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death."Leviticus 20:10
That clarify's it a bit, but here is where the main reference from Jesus in the new testament comes into play.....
"Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery but I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a [married] woman to [covet] her hath committed adultery with [another man's wife] already in his heart."
Jesus says we are all sinners and everyone falls short of the glory of God. Through Christ we are forgiven, and through his works we see hope peace and what is to come. It's where I take my refuge. I think if more christians read the bible they would be able to defend it more.
