[quote:1mykgcwe]I would venture that the ‘death’ of verse 32 is of the “the wages of sin are death” variety.[/quote:1mykgcwe]

Yes, this is what I was thinking.

It could be one of 2 things: either in that time period an actual, physical death was punishment for this crime (which I don’t think it was – look at the Greeks)

[b:1mykgcwe]–OR–[/b:1mykgcwe]

That passage refers to a spiritual death, meaning that the person who does those things will go to hell. So saying “‘the wages of sin are death’ variety” means that sin leads you to hell as opposed to eternal life (heaven).

I don’t think it’s referencing the death penalty.
