So he makes up false charges against her, accusing her of not being a virgin when they got married.
"If this happens, the young woman's parents are to take the blood-stained wedding sheet that proves she was a virgin, and they are to show it in court to the town leaders.
Her father will say to them, "I gave my daughter to this man in marriage, and now he doesn't want her.
He has made false charges against her, saying that she was not a virgin when he married her. But here is the proof that my daughter was a virgin; look at the bloodstains on the wedding sheet!'
Then the town leaders are to take the husband and beat him.
They are also to fine him a hundred pieces of silver and give the money to the young woman's father, because the man has brought disgrace on an Israelite woman. Moreover, she will continue to be his wife, and he can never divorce her as long as he lives.
"But if the charge is true and there is no proof that she was a virgin,
then they are to take her out to the entrance of her father's house, where the men of her city are to stone her to death. She has done a shameful thing among our people by having intercourse before she was married, while she was still living in her father's house. In this way you will get rid of this evil.
"If a man is caught having intercourse with another man's wife, both of them are to be put to death. In this way you will get rid of this evil.
"Suppose a man is caught in a town having intercourse with a young woman who is engaged to someone else.
You are to take them outside the town and stone them to death. She is to die because she did not cry out for help, although she was in a town, where she could have been heard. And the man is to die because he had intercourse with someone who was engaged. In this way you will get rid of this evil.
