    John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    ese es más bíblico y más inglés antiguo no te parece? Aunque sea el más exacto utilizándolo en el día a día me suena muy enreversado

    "All right, stone her. But let those who have never sinned throw the first stones!"

    Maybe I sHould have make explicit the context in which I am going to use this expression. I'm including it as a part of an opinion article...so which one do you think is better??

    thank you very much for your help aand time

    I think the phrase "to cast the first stone" is essential, the other part, as a preference for me would be "let he without sin" "let he among us/you without sin"

    "Let those who have never sinned throw the first stones."
    Let those who have never made a mistake, make the first complaints.
