What does Deuteronomy 22:24 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 22:24

Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of the city,
&c.] Where the fact was committed; the Targum of Jonathan is,

``to the gate of the court of judicature, which is in that city:''

and ye shall stone them with stones, that they die;
a man that lay with a married woman, he and she were to be strangled; but this sort of adulterers and adulteresses were to be stoned, and it is thought that of this sort was the woman spoken of in ( John 8:3-5 ) ,

the damsel because she cried not, being in the city, and the man
because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife;
as she was by espousal, by contract, by promise, and so was guilty of adultery, which was punishable with death:

so thou shall put away evil from among you;
see ( Deuteronomy 22:21 Deuteronomy 22:22 ) .
