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