The Protection of the Marriage Bond

The portion of Scripture for our study extends from Deuteronomy 22:13 - 23:14. This section contains Moses' application of the Seventh Commandment: "Thou shalt not commit adultery." The portion of this section which we will be considering herein runs from verses 13 through 29. However, we will select only various aspects of this section for consideration in this study. We will be dealing with this entire section in four articles. This is because of some of its features are unfamiliar to the modern mind and, consequently, need some greater explanation. Let us consider the aspects of this passage which deal with the protection of the marriage bond with regard to adultery.
