But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
Now early in the morning he came again to the temple [courts].a And all the people were coming,b and he sat down [and]c began to teachd them.
Now the scribes and the Pharisees brought to him a womane caught in adultery. And standing her in [their] midst,
they said to him, testing [him],f "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery!
Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?"
(Now they were saying this to test him, so that they would have [an occasion]g to bring charges against him.) But Jesus, bending down, began to writeh with [his]i finger on the ground, taking no notice.j7
And when they persisted in asking him, straightening up he saidk to them, "The [one] of you without sin, let him throw the first stone at her!"
And bending down again, he wrote on the ground.
Now [when they]l heard [it],m being convicted by their conscience,n they began to depart,o one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesusp was left alone--and the woman who was in [their] midst.
So Jesus, straightening up and seeing no one except the woman,q said to her, "Where are those accusers of yours?r Does no one condemn you?"
And she said, "No one, Lord." So Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you. Go, ands sin no more."]]t
