1Therefore as Jesus knew, that the Pharisees heard, that Jesus maketh and baptizeth more disciples than John,
2though Jesus baptized not, but his disciples,
3he left Judea, and went again into Galilee.
4And it behooved him to pass by Samaria.
5Therefore Jesus came into a city of Samaria, that is called Sychar, beside the place [or the field] that Jacob gave to Joseph, his son.
6And the well of Jacob was there; and Jesus was weary of the journey, and sat thus upon the well. And the hour was, as it were the sixth.
7And a woman came from Samaria, to draw water. And Jesus saith to her, Give me drink.
8And his disciples were gone into the city, to buy meat.
9Therefore that woman of Samaria saith to him, How thou, that art a Jew, askest of me a drink, that am a woman of Samaria? for [the] Jews used not to deal with [the] Samaritans.
10Jesus answered, and said to her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is, that saith to thee, Give me drink, thou peradventure wouldest have asked of him, and he should have given to thee quick water.
11The woman saith to him, Sire, thou hast not wherein to draw, and the pit is deep; whereof then hast thou quick water?
12Whether thou art greater than our father Jacob, that gave to us the pit? and he drank thereof, and his sons, and his beasts.
13Jesus answered, and said to her, Each man that drinketh of this water, shall thirst again;
14but he that drinketh of the water that I shall give him, shall not thirst without end; but the water that I shall give him, shall be made in him a well of water, springing up into everlasting life.
15The woman saith to him, Sire, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16Jesus saith to her, Go, call thine husband, and come hither.
17The woman answered, and said, I have none husband [or I have not an husband]. Jesus saith to her, Thou saidest well, That I have none husband [or I have not an husband];
18for thou hast had five husbands, and he that thou hast [now], is not thine husband. This thing thou saidest soothly.
19The woman saith to him, Lord, I see, that thou art a prophet.
20Our fathers worshipped in this hill, and ye say, that at Jerusalem is a place, where it behooveth to worship.
21Jesus saith to her, Woman, believe thou to me, for the hour shall come, when neither in this hill, neither in Jerusalem, ye shall worship the Father.
22Ye worship that that ye know not; we worship that that we know; for health is of the Jews.
23But the time is come, and now it is, when true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for also the Father seeketh such, that worship him.
24God is a Spirit, and it behooveth them that worship him, to worship in spirit and truth.
25The woman saith to him, I know that Messiah is come, that is said Christ; therefore when he cometh, he shall tell us all things.
26Jesus saith to her, I am he [or I am], that speaketh with thee.
27And anon his disciples came, and wondered, that he spake with the woman; nevertheless no man said to him, What seekest thou, or, What speakest thou with her?
28Therefore the woman left her water pot, and went into the city, and said to the men,
29Come ye, and see a man, that said to me all things that I have done; whether he be Christ?
30And they went out of the city, and came to him.
31In the meanwhile his disciples prayed him, and said, Master [or Rabbi], eat.
32But he said to them, I have meat to eat, that ye know not.
33Therefore the disciples said together, Whether any man hath brought him meat to eat?
34Jesus saith to them, My meat is that I do the will of him that sent me, [and] that I perform the work of him.
35Whether ye say not, that yet four months be, and ripe corn cometh? Lo! I say to you, lift up your eyes, and see ye the fields, for now they be white to reap.
36And he that reapeth taketh hire, and gathereth fruit into everlasting life; that both he that soweth, and he that reapeth, have joy together.
37In this thing is the word true, For one is that soweth, and another that reapeth.
38I sent you to reap, that that ye have not travailed; other men have travailed, and ye have entered into their travails.
39And of that city many [of the] Samaritans believed in him, for the word of the woman, that bare witnessing, That he said to me all things that I have done.
40Therefore when Samaritans came to him, they prayed him to dwell there; and he dwelt there two days.
41And many more believed for his word,
42and said to the woman, That now not for thy speech we believe; for we have heard, and we know, that this is verily the Saviour of the world.
43And after two days he went out from thence, and went into Galilee.
44And he bare witnessing, that a prophet in his own country hath none honour, [or worship].
45Therefore when he came into Galilee, men of Galilee received him, when they had seen all things that he had done in Jerusalem in the feast day; for also they had come to the feast day.
46Therefore he came again into the Cana of Galilee, where he made the water [into] wine. And there was a little king, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47When this had heard, that Jesus should come from Judea into Galilee, he went to him, and prayed him, that he should come down, and heal his son; for he began to die.
48Therefore Jesus said to him, But ye see tokens, and great wonders, ye believe not.
49The little king saith to him, Lord, come down, before that my son die.
50Jesus saith to him, Go, thy son liveth. The man believed to the word, that Jesus said to him, and he went.
51And now when he came down, the servants came to meet him, and told to him, and said, That his son lived.
52And he asked of them the hour, in which he was amended. And they said to him, For yesterday in the seventh hour the fever left him.
53Therefore the father knew, that that hour it was, in which Jesus said to him, Thy son liveth; and he believed, and all his house.
54Jesus did again this second token, when he came from Judea into Galilee.
