Bible: John 8:3-11

8:3 The experts in the law 1  and the Pharisees 2  brought a woman who had been caught committing adultery. They made her stand in front of them 8:4 and said to Jesus, 3 Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. 8:5 In the law Moses commanded us to stone to death 4  such women. 5  What then do you say? 8:6 (Now they were asking this in an attempt to trap him, so that they could bring charges against 6  him.) 7  Jesus bent down and wrote on the ground with his finger. 8  8:7 When they persisted in asking him, he stood up straight 9  and replied, 10 Whoever among you is guiltless 11  may be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8:8 Then 12  he bent over again and wrote on the ground.

8:9 Now when they heard this, they began to drift away one at a time, starting with the older ones, 13  until Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. 8:10 Jesus stood up straight 14  and said to her, “Woman, 15  where are they? Did no one condemn you? 8:11 She replied, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you either. Go, and from now on do not sin any more.”]] 16
