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.j
