Wife Bible Study ~ Exodus 20:17

"Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbour's."

My KJV Bible doesn't offer much extra information on this verse.
My NKJV Bible explains that covet means " . . uncontrolled, inordinate, selfish desire . . occurred in the mind . . ." And we should "turn away from evil thoughts that lead to" following through on "those actions."

Letting our minds wander away from our spouse to the spouse of another is sin.
