7th: You Shall Not Commit Adultery

The 7th commandment is our meditation for today.

[14] "You shall not commit adultery."

Shemot (Exodus) 20:14 [LEV]

What is "adultery"?

According to Google, adultery is a voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a person who is not his or her spouse.

As simple as that. However, there is more to it that warrants a separate study. For now, the simple yet powerful command to not commit adultery, in the way we understood it today, is enough for our meditation.
