Quran forbids muslims to come near to adultery:

Al-Isra, Chapter #17, Verse #32, "And come not near unto adultery. Lo! it is an abomination and an evil way. "

Quran forbids believing women to commit adultery:

Al-Mumtahana, Chapter #60, Verse #12, "O Prophet! If BELIEVING WOMEN come unto thee, taking oath of allegiance unto thee that they will ascribe no thing as partner unto Allah, and WILL NEITHER steal nor COMMIT ADULTERY nor kill their children, nor produce any lie that they have devised between their hands and feet, nor disobey thee in what is right, then accept their allegiance and ask Allah to forgive them. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. " (Pickthal's translation)

What is the definition of hypocrite as spelt out in the book of Quran?

At-Taubah, Chapter #9, Verse #67, "The HYPOCRITES, both men and women, proceed one from another. THEY ENJOIN THE WRONG, AND THEY FORBID THE RIGHT, and they withhold their hands (from spending for the cause of Allah). They forget Allah, so He hath forgotten them. Lo! The hypocrites, they are the transgressors. " (Pickthal's translation)

As the phrase, they enjoin the wrong and they forbid the right, is mentioned above with the word, hypocrites, it implies that the word, hypocrite, in Quran refers to those that know the words of Quran and yet they refuse to obey them.

What is the consequence of those that remain to be hypocrites?

An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse 145 , "# Lo! the hypocrites (will be) in the lowest deep of the Fire, and thou wilt find no helper for them;"
