cf. Deuteronomy 22:20-21, 23-24
    20 But if this claim is true—the girl was not found to be a virgin—
    21 They shall bring the girl out to the entrance of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones so that she dies; for she has done folly in Israel by committing fornication in her father's house. Thus you shall utterly remove the evil from your midst.
    23 If a girl who is a virgin is engaged to a man, and a man finds her in the city and lies with her;
    24 You shall bring both of them out to the gate of that city and stone them with stones so that they die, the girl because she did not cry out in the city, and the man because he humbled his neighbor's wife. Thus you shall utterly remove the evil from your midst.
