Numbers 5:11-31 Discussion

A mans wife is believed to have gone astray from him and had intercourse with another man, but their is no witness against her so she can not be killed. She is tested by "the water of bitterness that brings the curse." If she has gone astray from her husbands authority and had intercourse with another man, her uterus shall drop, and her womb discharge.

The interpretation seems obvious. If she is guilty and therefore is with child, her uterus shall drop and her womb discharges the fetus. Sounds like an abortion caused by the water of bitterness she if forced to drink. But if she is not pregnant no curse and nothing happens.

Also it should be realized that the man could never be guilty of adultery as long as the women was not married, unlike the married women who commited adultery against her husband. The husband could take as many wives and concubines (breeders) as he wished and it was not adultery as long as the women was not the property of another man.
