March 18, 2023. Gospel John 8:1-11. Saturday of the third week of Lent.
And Jesus went unto mount Olivet.
Jesus autem perrexit in montem Oliveti :
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him, and sitting down he taught them.
et diluculo iterum venit in templum, et omnis populus venit ad eum, et sedens docebat eos.
3 And the scribes and the Pharisees bring unto him a woman taken in adultery: and they set her in the midst,
Adducunt autem scribae et pharisaei mulierem in adulterio deprehensam : et statuerunt eam in medio,
4 And said to him: Master, this woman was even now taken in adultery.
et dixerunt ei : Magister, haec mulier modo deprehensa est in adulterio.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such a one. But what sayest thou?
In lege autem Moyses mandavit nobis hujusmodi lapidare. Tu ergo quid dicis?
6 And this they said tempting him, that they might accuse him. But Jesus bowing himself down, wrote with his finger on the ground.
Hoc autem dicebant tentantes eum, ut possent accusare eum. Jesus autem inclinans se deorsum, digito scribebat in terra.
7 When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Cum ergo perseverarent interrogantes eum, erexit se, et dixit eis : Qui sine peccato est vestrum, primus in illam lapidem mittat.
8 And again stooping down, he wrote on the ground.
Et iterum se inclinans, scribebat in terra.
9 But they hearing this, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest. And Jesus alone remained, and the woman standing in the midst.
Audientes autem unus post unum exibant, incipientes a senioribus : et remansit solus Jesus, et mulier in medio stans.
10 Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee?
Erigens autem se Jesus, dixit ei : Mulier, ubi sunt qui te accusabant? nemo te condemnavit?
11 Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more.
Quae dixit : Nemo, Domine. Dixit autem Jesus : Nec ego te condemnabo : vade, et jam amplius noli peccare.
