Now early in the morning, Jesus came again into the temple. And all the people came to Him, and He sat down and was teaching them, Then the scribes and the Pharisees bring to Him a woman taken in adultery; and having placed her in the midst, they say to Him, "Teacher, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such: so what dost Thou say (of her)?" But this they said trying Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus, having stooped down, was writing with His finger on the ground.
Now, as they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "Let the sinless one among you, first cast the stone at her." And again stooping down, He wrote on the ground. Then they, hearing it and being reproved by their conscience, went out, one by one, beginning with the eldest ones even to the last; and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
Then Jesus, rising up, and seeing no one but the woman, said to her, "Woman, where are thy accusers? Did no one condemn thee?" And she said, "No one, Lord." Then Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn thee. Go, and from henceforth sin no more."
