Question 70: Which is the Seventh Commandment?
Answer: The Seventh Commandment is, "thou shalt not commit adultery.”

Dear Neighbor,

The commandment was first spoken by God, to Israel at Mount Sinai in the dessert. Exodus 20:14
You shall not commit adultery.
And was repeated by Moses in the second law, Deuteronomy 5:18
You shall not commit adultery.
However, its roots, like all the law are from the beginning. Jesus went to the first two chapters of Genesis when discussing marriage. 

God created man and woman as unique biological persons designed to complete one other. In the beginning God instituted marriage between one male and one female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. Therefore, human beings should not alter or negate what God created, designed and instituted. (Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 2:18-25; Matthew 19:3-9)
