St. John, viii, 2-11. London, 1811. "And the Scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery, and when they had set her in the midst, they say to him, master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now, Moses in the law commanded us that such should be stoned, but what sayest thou. This they said, tempting him, that they might have whereof to accuse him. So when they continued asking him, he lifted himself up and said unto them: 'He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.' And they which heard, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one." [P. 31.]
