Fornication, Adultery, Sexual Immorality, 苟合，姦淫
經常看聖經會犯上的另一毛病，就是把一連串列出的事輕描淡寫的略過了事，就如苟合，姦淫 (fornication, adultery, sexual immorality) 等看為一種事，沒有深研兩者是有分別的。
fornication – 是泛指沒有婚姻下的性行為。
immorality – 不道德，邪惡。Sexual Immorality – 不道德或邪惡的性關係。
adultery – 指已婚的人與不是他的配偶發生性行為。
20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them.
21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder,
22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.
23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”
20 And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man.
21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,
22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness.
23 All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.”

- the state or quality of being immoral; wickedness: he believed his father had been punished by God for his immorality
voluntary sexual intercourse between a married person and a person who is not their spouse: she was committing adultery with a much younger man
