Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 On Tuesday there was a wedding at Kanah in the Galil; and the mother of Yeshua was there. 1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there,
2 Yeshua too was invited to the wedding, along with his talmidim. 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
3 The wine ran out, and Yeshua's mother said to him, "They have no more wine." 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
4 Yeshua replied, "Mother, why should that concern me? -- or you? My time hasn't come yet." 4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My time has not yet come."
5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6 Now six stone water-jars were standing there for the Jewish ceremonial washings, each with a capacity of twenty or thirty gallons. 6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
7 Yeshua told them, "Fill the jars with water," and they filled them to the brim. 7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
8 He said, "Now draw some out, and take it to the man in charge of the banquet"; and they took it. 8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
9 The man in charge tasted the water; it had now turned into wine! He did not know where it had come from, but the servants who had drawn the water knew. So he called the bride groom 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside
10 and said to him, "Everyone else serves the good wine first and the poorer wine after people have drunk freely. But you have kept the good wine until now!" 10 and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
11 This, the first of Yeshua's miraculous signs, he did at Kanah in the Galil; he manifested his glory, and his talmidim came to trust in him. 11 This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him.
12 Afterwards, he, his mother and brothers, and his talmidim went down to K'far-Nachum and stayed there a few days. 12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
13 It was almost time for the festival of Pesach in Y'hudah, so Yeshua went up to Yerushalayim. 13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 In the Temple grounds he found those who were selling cattle, sheep and pigeons, and others who were sitting at tables exchanging money. 14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
15 He made a whip from cords and drove them all out of the Temple grounds, the sheep and cattle as well. He knocked over the money-changers' tables, scattering their coins; 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
16 and to the pigeon-sellers he said, "Get these things out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market?" 16 To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!"
17 (His talmidim later recalled that the Tanakh says, "Zeal for your house will devour me." ) 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 So the Judeans confronted him by asking him, "What miraculous sign can you show us to prove you have the right to do all this?" 18 Then the Jews demanded of him, "What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?"
19 Yeshua answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again." 19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
20 The Judeans said, "It took 46 years to build this Temple, and you're going to raise it in three days?" 20 The Jews replied, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?"
21 But the "temple" he had spoken of was his body. 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
22 Therefore, when he was raised from the dead, his talmidim remembered that he had said this, and they trusted in the Tanakh and in what Yeshua had said. 22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
23 Now while Yeshua was in Yerushalayim at the Pesach festival, there were many people who "believed in his name" when they saw the miracles he performed. 23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in his name.
24 But he did not commit himself to them, for he knew what people are like -- 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
25 that is, he didn't need anyone to inform him about a person, because he knew what was in the person's heart. 25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
