20 Bible Verses About Adultery
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about Adultery.
Adultery is committing a sexual sin between someone that is married and an unmarried person. Jesus even said it in one of His teaching that thou shall not commit adultery. He placed more emphasis on it even after God already told us in the old testament that adultery is bad and it’s one of the commandments He gave us that we must obey.
The bible clearly condemns the act of adultery. It’s unheard of that a Christian who is supposed to teach people and lead souls to Christ are the ones misbehaving and even making the unbelievers see Christianity as a joke. Christians are ambassadors of Christ, they were first called Christians in Antioch when the people saw that they were behaving Christlike. Therefore the attribute we should emulate are that of Christ. Sex was designed to happen between a man and a woman that are legally married and joined by God.
Adultery violates the commitment made before man and God in your marriage to be faithful to each other since the matrimonial home was blessed by God himself. God commandments that said we shouldn’t commit adultery shows that God wants His people to exercise sexual purity and chastity within marriage.

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
3. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
4. 1 Corinthians 10:13

5. Matthew 5:31-32

6. 1 Corinthians 7:1-10
Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
7. Proverbs 6:24-29
To preserve you from the evil woman, from the smooth tongue of the adulteress. Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes; for the price of a prostitute is only a loaf of bread, but a married woman hunts down a precious life. Can a man carry fire next to his chest and his clothes not be burned? Or can one walk on hot coals and his feet not be scorched?

And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground.
9. Romans 7:2-3
For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage. Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress.
10. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
