John 8:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.[a] [b]But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he bent down and wrote on the ground.
