1 And on the third day, there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there,
2 And both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding. 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
3 And [when the] wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine!" 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
4 And Jesus said to her, "What {does your concern have to do with me}, woman? My hour has not yet come." 4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My time has not yet come."
5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he says to you, do [it]!" 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6 Now six stone water jars were set there, in accordance with the ceremonial cleansing of the Jews, each holding two or three measures. 6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
7 Jesus said to them, "Fill the water 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 And he said to them, "Now draw [some] out and take [it] to the head steward. So 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 Now when the head steward tasted the water which had become wine and did not know where it was from--but the servants who had drawn the water knew--the head steward summoned the bridegroom 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} serves the good wine first, and whenever they are drunk, the inferior. 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 beginning of signs Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee, and revealed his glory, and his disciples believed 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 After this he went down to Capernaum, and his mother and brothers and his disciples, and they 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 And the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 And he found in the temple [courts] those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers seated. 14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
15 And he made a whip of cords [and] drove [them] all out of the temple [courts], both the sheep and the oxen, and he poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 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 ones selling the doves he said, "Take these [things] away from here! Do not make my Father's house {a marketplace}!" 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 disciples remembered that it is written, "Zeal for your house will consume me." 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 So the Jews answered and said to him, "What sign do you show to us, because you are doing these [things]?" 18 Then the Jews demanded of him, "What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?"
19 Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up!" 19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
20 Then the Jews said, "This temple has been under construction forty-six years, and will you raise it up 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 he was speaking about the temple of his body. 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
22 So when he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the scripture and the saying that Jesus had spoken. 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 he was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in his name [because they] saw his signs which he was doing. 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 Jesus himself did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all [people], 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
25 and because he did not {need} anyone {to testify} about man, for he himself knew what was in man. 25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
