[verses 7-8] If the Lord had pronounced that she did not deserve to be stoned, He would have appeared to be unjust. Conversely, if He had condemned her He would not have appeared to be merciful. As the gentle and just One, hear Him say: “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first” [7] This is the Voice of justice. Let the guilty be punished, but not through sinners. Let the law be imposed but not through those who break it
+ St. Augustine

[verse 11] The Lord is gentle, patient, and tender. Yet He is also just and upright. Were you evil yesterday? May you become good today! Do you continue in the pursuit of evil today? Attempt to change that tomorrow…but how do you know that tomorrow will come?… God has promised to be forgiving to those who correct themselves. Yet He has not promised to extend my life (to tomorrow)!
+ St Augustine

Personal Question
1. Today is the day, what sins of mine do I need to repent from?
2. Who do I judge and condemn for their sins, which sins do I look down on? Is that right?
