Story of an adulterous woman brought to Jesus for judgment

Joh 7:53-8:11

53 And every man went to his house;
8:1 But Jesus went to the Mountain of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the Temple and all the people came to him and he was seated teaching them.
3 Now the scribes and Pharisees came, with a woman who had been taken in the act of sinning against the married relation;
4 And putting her forward, they said to him, Master, this woman has been taken in the very act of sinning against the married relation.
5 Now in the law Moses gave directions that such women were to be stoned; what do you say about it?
6 They said this, testing him, so that they might have something against him. But Jesus, with his head bent down, made letters on the floor with his finger.
7 But when they went on with their questions, he got up and said to them, Let him among you who is without sin be the first to send a stone at her.
8 And again, with bent head, he made letters on the floor.
9 And when his words came to their ears, they went out one by one, starting with the oldest even to the last, because they were conscious of what was in their hearts: and Jesus was there by himself with the woman before him.
10 Then Jesus got up, and seeing nobody but the woman, he said to her, Where are the men who said things against you? did no one give a decision against you?
11 And she said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said, And I do not give a decision against you: go, and never do wrong again.
