"Cast the first stone" in the Bible: John 8:7
Jesus faced a mob that was eager to execute a woman caught in adultery. He put a stop to it with a simple challenge: anyone who has no sin in their life should step forward and throw the first stone. That sentence is often cited as a reminder to avoid judging others when there are faults in your own life that need to be addressed.

"If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone." With this simple phrase, Jesus silenced an angry crowd ready to execute a women caught in adultery. His words challenged them to judge themselves before judging others.
