For this Torah Portion, I look at Deuteronomy 5.17b [5.18] and Exodus 20.13b [20.14], the seventh of the Ten.

I mention that the seventh does not contain a grammatical shift from the first person to the third person.

I mention that the seventh of the Ten has some grammatical differences in the Hebrew between Deuteronomy and Exodus.

I mention that because the seventh does not have any inline commentary defining the term adultery, the seventh is similar to the sixth, in that much commentary about the seventh has been passed down through the centuries.

I discuss what I believe is the intent and application of the seventh of the Ten.

Here is the discussion: Deuteronomy 5.17b [5.18].
