AMP Chapter 7
AMP (vs.53) [fn.h[And everyone went to his own house.  [fn.h] Footnotes in AMP: Most late mss include the story of the adulterous woman, numbering it as John 7vs.53 – John 8vs.11, though some mss place it elsewhere in the text. The story is considered authentic as part of the oral tradition of the early church, and perhaps for that reason it was inserted in John’s Gospel.
 AMP Chapter 8 
 AMP (vs.1) But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
AMP (vs.2) Early in the morning He came back into the temple [court], and all the people were coming to Him. He sat down and began teaching them.
AMP (vs.3) Now the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery. They made her stand in the center of the court,
AMP (vs.4) and they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the very act of adultery.
AMP (vs.5) Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women [to death]. So what do You say [to do with her—what is Your sentence]?”
AMP (vs.6) They said this to test Him, hoping that they would have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down and began writing on the ground with His finger. 
AMP (vs.7) However, when they persisted in questioning Him, He straightened up and said, “He who is without [any] sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”
AMP (vs.8) Then He stooped down again and started writing on the ground.
AMP (vs.9) They listened [to His reply], and they began to go out one by one, starting with the oldest ones, until He was left alone, with the woman [standing there before Him] in the center of the court.
AMP (vs.10) Straightening up, Jesus said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”
AMP (vs.11) She answered, “No one, Lord!” And Jesus said, “I do not condemn you either. Go. From now on sin no more.”]
