The Seventh CommandmentMonday 16th November

The seventh commandment forbids adultery - this includes any thought, word, or action which encourages sexual activity outside of the marriage between one man and one woman.
Selected Scripture

Exodus 20:14

14 “You shall not commit adultery.

(ESV)

Proverbs 7:4–9

  Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
    and call insight your intimate friend,
  to keep you from the forbidden1 woman,
    from the adulteress2 with her smooth words.
  For at the window of my house
    I have looked out through my lattice,
  and I have seen among the simple,
    I have perceived among the youths,
    a young man lacking sense,
  passing along the street near her corner,
    taking the road to her house
  in the twilight, in the evening,
    at the time of night and darkness.
