John, Chapter 2

   1: And on the third day a marriage took place in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
   2: And Jesus also, and his disciples, were invited to the marriage.
   3: And wine being deficient, the mother of Jesus says to him, They have no wine.
   4: Jesus says to her, What have I to do with thee, woman? mine hour has not yet come.
   5: His mother says to the servants, Whatever he may say to you, do.
   6: Now there were standing there six stone water-vessels, according to the purification of the Jews, holding two or three measures each.
   7: Jesus says to them, Fill the water-vessels with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
   8: And he says to them, Draw out now, and carry [it] to the feast-master. And they carried [it].
   9: But when the feast-master had tasted the water which had been made wine (and knew not whence it was, but the servants knew who drew the water), the feast-master calls the bridegroom,
   10: and says to him, Every man sets on first the good wine, and when [men] have well drunk, then the inferior; thou hast kept the good wine till now.
   11: This beginning of signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
   12: After this he descended to Capernaum, he and his mother and his brethren and his disciples; and there they abode not many days.
   13: And the passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
   14: And he found in the temple the sellers of oxen and sheep and doves, and the money-changers sitting;
   15: and, having made a scourge of cords, he cast [them] all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the change of the money-changers, and overturned the tables,
   16: and said to the sellers of doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise.
   17: [And] his disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal of thy house devours me.
   18: The Jews therefore answered and said to him, What sign shewest thou to us, that thou doest these things?
   19: Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
   20: The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this temple building, and thou wilt raise it up in three days?
   21: But he spoke of the temple of his body.
   22: When therefore he was raised from among [the] dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
   23: And when he was in Jerusalem, at the passover, at the feast, many believed on his name, beholding his signs which he wrought.
   24: But Jesus himself did not trust himself to them, because he knew all [men],
   25: and that he had not need that any should testify of man, for himself knew what was in man.
