Deuteronomy 22:22


22:22 If a man is caught having sexual relations with 1  a married woman 2  both the man who had relations with the woman and the woman herself must die; in this way you will purge 3  evil from Israel.

Deuteronomy 24:4

24:4 her first husband who divorced her is not permitted to remarry 4  her after she has become ritually impure, for that is offensive to the Lord. 5  You must not bring guilt on the land 6  which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance.

1 tn Heb “lying with” (so KJV, NASB), a Hebrew idiom for sexual relations.

2 tn Heb “a woman married to a husband.”

3 tn Heb “burn.” See note on the phrase “purge out” in Deut 21:21.

4 tn Heb “to return to take her to be his wife.”

5 sn The issue here is not divorce and its grounds per se but prohibition of remarriage to a mate whom one has previously divorced.

6 tn Heb “cause the land to sin” (so KJV, ASV).
