Adultery was a property crime - the intent to steal another man's wife without his permission. It was never intended to mean what it means today. Nearly all the heros of the Old Testament had multiple wives and concubines with God's blessing and never once was it considered adultery.

I don't like bibles with commentaries anymore because they skew things to their way of thinking right or wrong.
