John 4

Whiston(i) 1 When therefore the Lord Jesus knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2 Though Jesus himself baptized not, but the disciples. 3 He left the land of Judea, and departed again into Galilee. 4 And he must needs go through Samaria. 5 He cometh then to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6 No Jacobs well was thee. Jesus therefore being wearied with the journey, sat thus on the well: and it was 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 unto the city to buy provisions. 9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou being a Jew, askest drink of me, a woman of Samaria? 10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who he is that saith to thee, Give me to drink, thou woulst have asked him, and he would have given thee living water. 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast no bucket and the well is deep: Whence hast thou that living water? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water will thirst again: 14 But whosoever shall drink of the water that I shall give him, will never thirst: but the water that I shall give him, wilt be in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, neither come hither to draw. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Go call thy husband, and come hither. 17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, thou hast no husband: 18 For thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast is not they husband: in that saidest thou 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 ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem worship the Father. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship; for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God [is] a Spirit, and they that worship him, must worship in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh who is called Christ: when he shall come, he will tell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee, am [he]. 27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no one said to him, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? 28 The woman then left her water pot, and went away into the city, and saith to the men, 29 Come, see a man who told me all things that ever I did: is not he the Christ? 30 And they went out of the city, and came unto him. 31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. 32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. 33 Therefore said the disciples among themselves, Hath any man brought him [ought] to eat? 34 Jesus saith unto them, My food is that I may do the will of him that sent me, and finish his work. 35 Say not ye, There are four months, and then [cometh] harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are already white to harvest. 36 He that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth, and he that reapeth may rejoyce together. 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38 I sent you to reap: Ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entred into their labours. 39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him, for the word of the woman which testified, He told me all that ever I did. 40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, the besought him that he would abide with them: and he abode there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his own word: 42 And said unto the woman, We do not know believe because of thy testimony; for we have heard him our selves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. 43 But after two days he departed thence, into Galilee: 44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country. 45 Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast. 46 So he came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. But there was a certain noble man, whose son was sick at Caphanaum. 47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea 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 Therefore said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders ye will not believe. 49 The noble man saith unto him, Sir, come down ere the child die. 50 Jesus saith unto him, Go, thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went. 51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told [him], saying, that Thy son liveth. 52 Then enquired he of them the hour, when he began to amend: and they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. 53 So the father know that [it was] at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth; and himself believed, and his whole house. 54 This again is the second miracle Jesus did when he was come out of Judea into Galilee.
