The words are inspired, not the people. A better translation of "given by inspiration of God" is "God-breathed." (I don't usually prefer the NIV, but it is very helpful on 2 Timothy 3:16)
“You shall not commit adultery" Biblically, adultery is sex outside of marriage. (Marriage is also defined - "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.")
