If a man 1  commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, 2  both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.


De 22:22-24; 2Sa 12:13; Eze 23:45-47; Joh 8:4,5

NET © Notes

tn Heb “And a man who.” The syntax here and at the beginning of the following verses elliptically mirrors that of v. 9, which justifies the rendering as a conditional clause.

tc The reading of the LXX minuscule mss has been followed here (see the BHS footnote a-a). The MT has a dittography, repeating “a man who commits adultery with the wife of” (see the explanation in J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 328). The duplication found in the MT is reflected in some English versions, e.g., KJV, ASV, NASB, NIV.
