1But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2Now early in the morning He came again
into the temple, and all the people came to Him;
and He sat down and taught them.
3Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him
a woman caught in adultery.
And when they had set her in the midst,
4they said to Him, “Teacher,
this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.
5Now Moses, in the law, commanded us
that such should be stoned. But what do You say?”
6This they said, testing Him, that they might
have something of which to accuse Him.
But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground
with His finger, as though He did not hear.
7So when they continued asking Him,
He raised Himself up and said to them,
“He who is without sin among you,
let him throw a stone at her first.”
8And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9Then those who heard it, being convicted
by their conscience, went out one by one,
beginning with the oldest even to the last.
And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10When Jesus had raised Himself up
and saw no one but the woman, He said to her,
“Woman, where are those accusers of yours?
Has no one condemned you?”
11She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her,
“Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
