John 8:1-11 (NASB)

The Adulterous Woman

1   But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 
2   Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people 
were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. 
3   The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, and 
having set her in the center of the court, 
4   they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in 
the very act. 
5   "Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do 
You say?" 
6   They were saying this, testing Him, so that they might have grounds 
for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and with His finger wrote on the 
ground. 
7   But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to 
them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a 
stone at her." 
8   Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 
9   When they heard it, they began to go out one by one, beginning with 
the older ones, and He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in 
the center of the court. 
10   Straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they? Did no 
one condemn you?" 
11   She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "I do not condemn you, 
either. Go. From now on sin no more."
