You shall not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14, AMP)

This is the accompanying foot note from the Amplified Bible.

Observe here the expansion of the meaning of the seventh commandment in many catechisms to include whoredom in all its forms, as well as unchastity [premarital relations, sexual impurity, and lustful desire under whatever name] (J.P. Lange, “A Commentary”).

Not only is adultery forbidden here, but also fornication and all kinds of mental and sensual uncleanness.

All impure books, songs, pictures, etc., which tend to inflame and debauch the mind are against this law (Adam Clarke, “The Holy Bible with A Commentary”).

Prayer- Lord, where we fail you, forgive us. Help us live a more holy life, one that honours you. Amen.
