Daily Study of the Noahide Code of Laws
The Divine Code for January 8, 2023
Today: Page 397
Topic Chapter 1:10 - 1:12
For every one of the forbidden relations that are capital sins, both the man and the woman are equally liable. This applies only to a partner who is of mature age, and who acts voluntary.
A mature age should be the age at which most people in that community can be considered as having maturity and responsibility for their actions. Nowadays this is usually around the age of 17 for boys and girls. A woman who is raped by a forbidden partner is not liable to punishment.
