NKJVNew King James Version
19The woman said to Him, “Sir, #Matt. 21:11; Luke 7:16, 39; 24:19; John 6:14; 7:40; 9:17I perceive that You are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshiped on #Gen. 12:6–8; 33:18, 20; Judg. 9:7this mountain, and you Jews say that in #Deut. 12:5, 11; 1 Kin. 9:3; 2 Chr. 7:12; Ps. 122:1–9Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
21Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming #(Mal. 1:11); 1 Tim. 2:8when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22You worship #(2 Kin. 17:28–41)what you do not know; we know what we worship, for #(Is. 2:3; Luke 24:47; Rom. 3:1; 9:4, 5)salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will #Matt. 18:20; (Heb. 13:10–14)worship the Father in #Phil. 3:3spirit #(John 1:17)and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24#2 Cor. 3:17God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
