John 8:7

_ _ He that is without sin — not meaning sinless altogether; nor yet, guiltless of a literal breach of the Seventh Commandment; but probably, he whose conscience acquits him of any such sin.

_ _ cast a stone — “the stone,” meaning the first one (Deuteronomy 17:7).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 8:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

He that is without sin — He that is not guilty: his own conscience being the judge) either of the same sin, or of some nearly resembling it; let him — as a witness, cast the first stone at her.
