Boy oh boy, this commandment is very different than the one I remember them hammering into my head at Bible study:

thou shalt commit adultery

It’s from a 1631 bible in the British Museum, but at least one curator is suspicious (I think with good reason) that the ostensible misprint was deliberate, rather than “the most unfortunate mistake in the entire history of printing.”

It would be a very different religion today if that misprint (or subtle act of rebellion) had carried the day, don’t you think?
