    What should be the punishment for rape?

    I do not intend to rape anyone. What should be the punishment for rape?

    I observe God's Law, and I do not know if it should be a death penalty or something less. Certainly the life lost should result in the rapist being killed, but is this argument from emotion allowed?

    What does the law say that the penalty is, whether God's Law from the Law of Moses or otherwise, or otherwise (The Law of the United States of America, American Law, or the Law of the States whatever it is where the law is or would be found).

    I feel that a known punishment would be a deterrent.
    Bereishit - Genesis - Chapter 1

    1 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth.
    :א בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ

    in beginning he created gods the heavens and the earth

    Deuteronomy 22:25-30 "But if a man finds a betrothed young woman in the countryside, and the man forces her and lies with her, then only the man who lay with her shall die. But you shall do nothing to the young woman; [there is] in the young woman no sin [deserving] of death, for just as when a man rises against his neighbor and kills him, even so [is] this matter."

    Death Penalty

    Deuteronomy 22:25-27 King James Version (KJV)
    25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die.

    26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

    27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    Jim Elliot

    What about a man and woman unrelated to each other and not engaged, betrothed, or married? Love waits until marriage.

    What about it? The OP is referencing the act of rape. Rapists should receive the DP.

    No, I meant Noah's daughters who made him insensate with wine and lay with him without his knowledge

    in today's world, if a man did that with a woman, there would be no question of calling it rape

    feminists have an aneurysm when the reverse scenario is presented to them
