THE VERSE OF STONING IN THE TAURAT
IT is clear from the previous chapter that the Verse of Stoning was in the Qur'an
whence it was dropped, and that the Qur'an witnessed to it as existing in the Taurat in
its day, and it has never been omitted from the Bible since then. For, notwithstanding
all the accusations of the Muhammadans, the verse still exists in the Bible! It has been
in it ever since Moses recorded it. It occurs in Deut. xxii. 22-4.
If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then
shall they both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so
shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and the man find her in the
city and lie with her;
Then shall ye bring them both out unto the gate of the city and shall stone them with
stones that they die.
This is the Verse of Stoning, nay the Verses of Stoning, which Muhammadans accuse
Christians of having omitted! But the verses have remained sound and perfect, and will
for ever remain so,
