But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field
Alone, and where she might cry out, and none hear, nor were any to help her:
and a man force her, and lie with her;
or "take fast and strong hold on her" F2; so that she is not able to get out of his hands, and make her escape, he being stronger than she, and so commits a rape upon her:
then the man only that lay with her shall die;
he being guilty of adultery, in lying with a woman espoused to another man, but not she, because she consented not to it.
F2 (hb qyzxhw) "et apprehenderit (in) eam", Pagninus, Montanus; "et apprehendens eam", Piscator.
