Easton's Bible Dictionary

Fornication:

in every form of it was sternly condemned by the Mosaic law (Lev 21:9; 19:29; Deu 22:20,21,23-29; 23:18; Exd 22:16). (See ADULTERY.)

But this word is more frequently used in a symbolical than in its ordinary sense. It frequently means a forsaking of God or a following after idols (Isa 1:2; Jer 2:20; Eze 16; Hsa 1:2; 2:1-5; Jer 3:8,9).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Fornication:

for-ni-ka'-shun.

See CRIMES

King James Dictionary

Fornication: Sexual Immorality.

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But FORNICATION, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. (Ephesian 5:1-4)
