A Commentary, Critical, Practical, and Explanatory on the Old and New Testaments, by Robert Jamieson, A.R. Fausset and David Brown [1882]
woman . . . in adultery . . . Moses . . . commanded . . . should be stoned--simply put to death (Deu 22:22), but in aggravated cases, at least in later times, this was probably by stoning (Eze 16:40).

but what sayest thou--hoping, whatever He might answer, to put Him in the wrong:--if He said, Stone her, that would seem a stepping out of His province; if He forbade it, that would hold Him up as a relaxer of the public morals. But these cunning hypocrites were overmatched.
40 They shall also bring up [05927] a company [06951] against thee, and they shall stone [07275] thee with stones [068], and thrust thee through [01333] with their swords [02719].
22 If a man [0376] be found [04672] lying [07901] with a woman [0802] married [01166] to an husband [01167], then they shall both of them [08147] die [04191], both the man [0376] that lay [07901] with the woman [0802], and the woman [0802]: so shalt thou put away [01197] evil [07451] from Israel [03478].
