John 8:8

_ _ again he stooped down and wrote — The design of this second stooping and writing on the ground was evidently to give her accusers an opportunity to slink away unobserved by Him, and so avoid an exposure to His eye which they could ill have stood. Accordingly it is added.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
