John 4


4:1 When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard
 that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
4:2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
4:3 He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee.
4:4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
4:5 Then he cometh to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar,
 near to the parcel of ground, that Jacob gave to his son
 Joseph.
4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore being wearied
 with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about
 the sixth hour.
4:7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith
 to her, Give me to drink.
4:8 (For his disciples had gone to the city to buy provisions.)
4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria to him, How is it that thou,
 being a Jew, askest drink of me, who am a woman of Samaria? for
 the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, If thou knewest the gift of
 God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou
 wouldst have asked him, and he would have given thee living
 water.
4:11 The woman saith to him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw
 with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that
 living water?
4:12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the
 well, and drank of it himself, and his children, and his
 cattle?
4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, Whoever drinketh of this
 water, shall thirst again:
4:14 But whoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him,
 shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him, shall
 be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
4:15 The woman saith to him, Sir, give me this water, that I may
 not thirst, neither come hither to draw.
4:16 Jesus saith to her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
4:17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said
 to her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
4:18 For thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast,
 is not thy husband: in that thou hast spoken truth.
4:19 The woman saith to him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a
 prophet.
4:20 Our fathers worshiped in this mountain; and ye say, that in
 Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
4:21 Jesus saith to her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh,
 when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem,
 worship the Father.
4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship, for
 salvation is from the Jews.
4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers
 shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father
 seeketh such to worship him.
4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him, must worship
 [him] in spirit and in truth.
4:25 The woman saith to him, I know that Messiah cometh, who is
 called Christ; when he is come, he will tell us all things.
4:26 Jesus saith to her, I that speak to thee am [he].
4:27 And upon this came his disciples, and marveled that he
 talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or,
 Why talkest thou with her?
4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went into the city,
 and saith to the men,
4:29 Come, see a man who hath told me all things that ever I
 did: is not this the Christ?
4:30 Then they went out of the city, and came to him.
4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master,
 eat.
4:32 But he said to them, I have food to eat that ye know not
 of.
4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man
 brought him [aught] to eat?
4:34 Jesus saith to them, My food is to do the will of him that
 sent me, and to finish his work.
4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and [then] cometh
 harvest? behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on
 the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
4:36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit to
 life eternal: that both he that soweth, and he that reapeth,
 may rejoice together.
4:37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another
 reapeth.
4:38 I sent you to reap that on which ye bestowed no labor:
 other men labored, and ye have entered into their labors.
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for
 the saying of the woman, who testified, He told me all that
 ever I did.
4:40 So when the Samaritans had come to him, they besought him
 that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
4:41 And many more believed, because of his own word;
4:42 And said to the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy
 saying: for we have heard [him] ourselves, and know that this
 is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.
4:43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into
 Galilee.
4:44 For Jesus himself testified that a prophet hath no honor in
 his own country.
4:45 Then when he had come into Galilee, the Galileans received
 him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the
 feast: for they also went to the feast.
4:46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the
 water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was
 sick at Capernaum.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea into Galilee,
 he went to him, and besought him that he would come down, and
 heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Then said Jesus to him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye
 will not believe.
4:49 The nobleman saith to him, Sir, come down ere my child
 dieth.
4:50 Jesus saith to him, Go; thy son liveth. And the man
 believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him, and he
 departed.
4:51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and
 told [him], saying, Thy son liveth.
4:52 Then he inquired of them the hour when he began to amend:
 and they said to him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever
 left him.
4:53 So the father knew that [it was] at the same hour in which
 Jesus said to him, Thy son liveth: and he himself believed, and
 his whole house.
4:54 This [is] again the second miracle [that] Jesus performed,
 when he had come from Judea into Galilee.
