John 4

And Jesus knew, that the Pharisees had heard; that he made many disciples, and baptized more than John. Yet Jesus himself did not baptize but his disciples. And he left Judaea, and went again into Galilee. And in going, he had occasion to pass through the midst of the Samaritans. And he came to a city of the Samaritans called Sychar, near the field which Jacob gave to his son Joseph. And Jacob's well of water was there. And Jesus was weary with the toil of travelling, and seated himself by the well: and it was at the sixth hour. And a woman from Samaria came to draw water. And Jesus said to her: Give me water to drink. And his disciples had gone to the city, to buy themselves food. The Samaritan woman said to him: How dost thou, a Jew, ask drink of me, who am a Samaritan woman? For the Jews have no familiarity with Samaritans. 10 Jesus replied and said to her: If thou hadst known 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 waters. 11 The woman said to him: My lord, thou hast no bucket, and the well is deep.; how hast thou living waters? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well, and drank from it himself, and his children, and his flocks? 13 Jesus replied and said to her: Whoever shall drink of these waters, will thirst again; 14 but whoever shall drink of the waters which I shall give him, will not thirst for ever; but the waters, which I shall give him, will be in him a fountain of waters, springing up unto life eternal. 15 The woman said to him: My lord, give me of these waters, that I may not thirst again, and may not come to draw from here. 16 Jesus said to her: Go, call thy husband, and come hither. 17 She said to him: I have no husband. Jesus said to her: Thou hast well said, I have no husband; 18 for thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast, is not thy husband. In this thou didst speak truly. 19 The woman said to him: My lord, I perceive thou art a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; but ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where it is proper to worship. 21 Jesus said to her: Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, ye will worship the Father. 22 Ye worship, ye know not what; but we worship what we know; for life is from the Jews. 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father requireth that worshippers be such. 24 For God is a Spirit; and they that worship him, should worship in spirit and in truth. 25 The woman said to him: I know that Messiah will come; and when he cometh, he will teach us every thing. 26 Jesus said to her: I, who talk with thee, am he. 27 And while he was speaking, his disciples came. And they wondered that he would converse with the woman; yet no one said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? 28 And the woman left her water-pot, and went to the city, and said to the people: 29 Come, see a man that told me every thing I ever did: is not this the Messiah? 30 And the people went out of the city, and came to him. 31 In the mean time, his disciples entreated him, and said to him: Our Rabbi, eat. 32 But he said to them: I have food to eat, of which ye are ignorant. 33 The disciples said among themselves: Hath any one brought him something to eat? 34 Jesus said to them: My food is to do the pleasure of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work. 35 Do ye not say, that after four months cometh the harvest? Behold, I say to you, and lift up your eyes, and look upon the grounds, that they are white, and have already come to the harvest. 36 And he that reapeth, receiveth wages, and gathereth fruits unto life eternal; and the sower and the reaper equally rejoice. 37 For in this, is the proverb true, that one is the sower, and another the reaper. 38 I sent you to reap that, on which ye labored not: for others toiled, and ye entered into their labor. 39 And many Samaritans of that city believed on him, because of the discourse of the woman, who testified, He told me all that I ever did. 40 And when these Samaritans came to him, they requested him to tarry with them; and he remained with them two days. 41 And many believed on him, because of his discourse. 42 And they said to the woman: Henceforth we believe in him, not on account of thy word; for we have heard him ourselves, and we know that he truly is the Messiah, the Life-Giver of the world. 43 And after two days Jesus departed from there and went into Galilee. 44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet is not honored in his own city. 45 And when he came to Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all the signs which he wrought in Jerusalem at the feast, for they too had gone to the feast. 46 And Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was at Capernaum a king's servant, whose son was sick. 47 He heard that Jesus had come from Judaea to Galilee; and he went to him, and besought him that he would come down and heal his son; for he was near dying. 48 Jesus said to him: Unless ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. 49 The king's servant said to him: My lord, come down, before the child dieth. 50 Jesus said to him: Go, thy son liveth. And the man believed the word which Jesus spake to him, and went away. 51 And as he was going down, his servants met him, and informed him and said to him: Thy son liveth. 52 And he asked them, at what time he recovered. And they said to him: Yesterday, at the seventh hour the fever left him. 53 And his father knew, that it was at the hour in which Jesus said to him, Thy son liveth. And he believed, and all his house. 54 This again was the second sign that Jesus wrought, when he came from Judaea to Galilee.
