As was mentioned in the previous post, Reverend Hale visits John Proctor's home to gather additional evidence that suggests witchcraft is present throughout Salem's community. To ensure that the Proctors are upright Christians, he asks Elizabeth and John if they can recite the Ten Commandments. John Proctor is able to name nine of the commandments but forgets the commandment forbidding adultery. While John is attempting to remember the last commandment, Elizabeth intervenes and says, "Adultery, John" (Miller, 67). Proctor forgetting the commandment regarding infidelity is significant because it represents his affair with Abigail Williams. John Proctor's marriage is struggling because of his infidelity, and he feels extremely guilty for his past sin. Even though Elizabeth gently reminds her husband of the commandment dealing with adultery, she has been unwilling to forgive John for his affair with Abigail. Proctor's inability to remember the last commandment relates to his affair with Abigail Williams.
