Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Two days later 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 Jesus also was invited and His disciples. 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
3 Now the wine ran short; whereupon 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 "Leave the matter in my hands," He replied; "the time for me to act 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 attendants, "Whatever he tells you to do, do it." 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6 Now there were six stone jars standing there (in accordance with the Jewish regulations for purification), each large enough to hold twenty gallons or more. 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 the attendants, "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 Then He said, "Now, take some out, and carry it to the President of the feast." 8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
9 So they carried some to him. And no sooner had the President tasted the water now turned into wine, than--not knowing where it came from, though the attendants who had drawn the water knew--he called to 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, "It is usual to put on the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then that which is inferior. But you have kept the good wine till 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 His miracles, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee, and thus displayed His glorious power; 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 Afterwards He went down to Capernaum--He, and His mother, and His brothers, and His disciples; and they made a short stay there. 12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
13 But the Jewish Passover was approaching, and for this 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 the dealers in cattle and sheep and in pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. 14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
15 So He plaited a whip of rushes, and drove all--both sheep and bullocks--out of the Temple. The small coin of the brokers He upset on the ground 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 pigeon-dealers He said, "Take these things away. Do not 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 This recalled to His disciples the words of Scripture, "My zeal for Thy House will consume me." 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 So the Jews asked Him, "What proof of your authority do you exhibit to us, seeing that you do 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 "Demolish this Sanctuary," said Jesus, "and in three days I will rebuild it." 19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
20 "It has taken forty-six years," replied the Jews, "to build this Sanctuary, and will you rebuild 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 He was speaking of the Sanctuary of His body. 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
22 When however He had risen from among the dead, His disciples recollected that He had said this; and they believed the Scripture and the teaching which Jesus had given them. 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 when He was in Jerusalem, at the Festival of the Passover, many became believers in Him through watching 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 for His part, Jesus did not trust Himself to them, because He knew them all, 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
25 and did not need any one's testimony concerning a man, for He of Himself knew what was in the man. 25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
