Ki Tetse

  
BackForward
 22:23
22:23 [This is the law] where a virgin girl is betrothed to one man, and another man comes across her in the city and has intercourse with her.
Ki yihyeh na'arah vetulah me'orasah le'ish umetsa'ah ish ba'ir veshachav imah.



Commentary:

girl
  Between 12 and 12 years old (Sanhedrin 66b; Yad, Issurey Biyah 3:4). If she is older, the penalty is no longer stoning, but strangulation, as in all cases of adultery.

betrothed
  See note on Exodus 22:15.
