John 7:53-8:11 English Standard Version (ESV)

53 [[They went each to his own house, 8 1 but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.2 Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. 3 The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst 4 they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. 5 Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” 6 This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. 7 And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. 9 But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.10 Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”]]

Psalm 18:31-42 English Standard Version (ESV)


For who is God, but the Lord?

    And who is a rock, except our God?—


the God who equipped me with strength

    and made my way blameless.


He made my feet like the feet of a deer

    and set me secure on the heights.


He trains my hands for war,

    so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.


You have given me the shield of your salvation,

    and your right hand supported me,

    and your gentleness made me great.


You gave a wide place for my steps under me,

    and my feet did not slip.


I pursued my enemies and overtook them,

    and did not turn back till they were consumed.


I thrust them through, so that they were not able to rise;

    they fell under my feet.


For you equipped me with strength for the battle;

    you made those who rise against me sink under me.


You made my enemies turn their backs to me,[a]

    and those who hated me I destroyed.


They cried for help, but there was none to save;

    they cried to the Lord, but he did not answer them.


I beat them fine as dust before the wind;    I cast them out like the mire of the streets.
