Preview of English translation:

20. Thereupon the Pratiprasthatri returns (to where the sacrificer’s wife is seated). When he is about to lead the wife away, he asks her, “With whom holdest thou intercourse?” Now when a woman who belongs to one (man) carries on intercourse with another, she undoubtedly commits (a sin) against Varuna. He therefore thus asks her, lest she should sacrifice with a secret pang in her mind; for when confessed the sin becomes less, since it becomes truth; this is why he thus asks her. And whatever (connection) she confesses not, that indeed will turn out injurious to her relatives.
