10/16 Daily Devotional

Chapel Devotional  

John 8:2-12 

Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him and he sat down and began to teach them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery; and making her stand before all of them, they said to him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” They said this to test him, so that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once again he bent down and wrote on the ground. When they heard it, they went away, one by one, beginning with the elders; and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, sir.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, and from now on do not sin again.” 


Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” 


Pero de madrugada se presentó otra vez en el Templo, y todo el pueblo acudía a élEntonces se sentó y se puso a enseñarles. Los escribas y fariseos le llevan una mujer sorprendida en adulterio, la ponen en medio y le dicen: Maestro, esta mujer ha sido sorprendida en flagrante adulterio. Moisés nos mandó en la Ley apedrear estas mujeres. ¿Tú qué dices? Esto lo decían para tentarle, para tener de qué acuasarle. Pero Jesús, inclinándose, se puso escribir con el dedo en la tierra. Pero, como ellos insistían en preguntarle, se incorporó y les dijo: Aquel de vosotros que esté sin pecado, que le arroje la primera piedra. E inclinándose de nuevo, escribía en la tierra. Ellos, al oír estas palabras, se iban retirando uno tras otrocomenzando por los más viejos; y se quedó solo Jesús con la mujer, que seguía en medio. Incorporándose Jesús le dijoMujer, ¿dónde están? ¿Nadie te ha condenado?Ella respondióNadie, Señor. Jesús le dijo: Tampoco yo te condenoVete, y en adelante no peques más.  


Jesús les habló otra vez diciendoYo soy la luz del mundo; el que me siga no caminará en la oscuridadsino que tendrá la luz de la vida. 


아침에 다시 성전으로 들어오시니 백성이 다 나오는 지라 앉으사 저희를 가르치시더니 서기관들과 바리새인들이 간음 중에 잡힌 여자를 끌고 와서 가운데 세우고 예수께 말하되 `선생이여, 이 여자가 간음하다가 현장에서 잡혔나이다 모세는 율법에 이러한 여자를 돌로 치라 명하였거니와 선생은 어떻게 말하겠나이까?' 저희가 이렇게 말함은 고소할 조건을 얻고자 하여 예수를 시험함이러라 예수께서 몸을 굽히사 손가락으로 땅에 쓰시니 저희가 묻기를 마지 아니하는지라 이에 일어나 가라사대 `너희 중에 죄 없는 자가 먼저 돌로 치라!' 하시고 다시 몸을 굽히사 손가락으로 땅에 쓰시니 저희가 이 말씀을 듣고 양심의 가책을 받아 어른으로 시작하여 젊은이까지 하나씩 하나씩 나가고 오직 예수와 그 가운데 섰는 여자만 남았더라 예수께서 일어나사 여자 외에 아무도 없는 것을 보시고 이르시되 여자여너를 고소하던 그들이 어디 있느냐너를 정죄한 자가 없느냐대답하되 `주여없나이다예수께서 가라사대 `나도 너를 정죄하지 아니하노니 가서 다시는 죄를 범치 말라!' 하시니라 


예수께서 또 일러 가라사대 `나는 세상의 빛이니 나를 따르는 자는 어두움에 다니지 아니하고 생명의 빛을 얻으리라' 


Your voice burns within the depths of our being, 
O God of our ancestors, 
     and draws us into your presence and service. 
Hear the cries of your people 
     and speak a word of comfort, 
     that we may proclaim to all the earth 
     the glory of your name.
