John 4:9-19 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
9 The woman of Samaria said to him, Why do you, a Jew, make a request for water to me, a woman of Samaria? She said this because Jews have nothing to do with the people of Samaria. 10 In answer Jesus said, If you had knowledge of what God gives freely and who it is who says to you, Give me water, you would make your prayer to him, and he would give you living water. 11 The woman said to him, Sir, you have no vessel and the fountain is deep; from where will you get the living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob who gave us the fountain and took the water of it himself, with his children and his cattle? 13 Jesus said to her, Everyone who takes this water will be in need of it again: 14 But whoever takes the water I give him will never be in need of drink again; for the water I give him will become in him a fountain of eternal life. 15 The woman said to him, Sir, give me this water, so that I may not be in need again of drink and will not have to come all this way for it. 16 Jesus said to her, Go, get your husband and come back here with him. 17 In answer, the woman said, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have said rightly, I have no husband: 18 You have had five husbands, and the man you have now is not your husband: that was truly said. 19 The woman said to him, Sir, I see that you are a prophet.
