John 8:5

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should, be
stoned
Not in (Leviticus 20:10) ; for though according to the law there, an adulteress, one that was a married woman, and so an adulterer, that was a married man, were to be put to death; yet the death was not stoning, but strangling; for it is a rule with the Jews F7, that where death is simply mentioned (without restraining it to any particular kind) strangling is intended, and which rule they apply to this law: and accordingly in their Misna, or oral law, one that lies with another man's wife, is reckoned among those that are to be strangled F8: Kimchi indeed says F9, that adulteresses, according to the law, are to be stoned with stones; but then this must be understood of such as are betrothed, but not married; and such a person, Moses has commanded in the law, to be stoned, (Deuteronomy 22:23,24) . And with this agree the traditions of the Jews F11;

``a daughter of Israel must be stoned, who is (hawvn alw) (howra) , "betrothed, but not married".''

And such an one we must believe this woman was; she was betrothed to a man, but not married to him, and therefore to be stoned: the Jews
FOOTNOTES:

F12 have also a saying, that

``if all adulterers were punished with stoning, according to the law, the stones would be consumed; but they would not be consumed;''

adultery was so common with that people:

but what sayest thou?
dost thou agree with Moses, or not?
