1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of 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 bidden, and his disciples, to the marriage. 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
3 And when the wine failed, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
4 And Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My time has not yet come."
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6 Now there were six waterpots of stone set there after the Jews' manner of purifying, containing two or three firkins apiece. 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 saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the ruler of the feast. And they bare it. 8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
9 And when the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and knew not whence it was (but the servants that had drawn the water knew), the ruler of the feast calleth 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 saith unto him, Every man setteth on first the good wine; and when [men] have drunk freely, [then] that which is worse: thou hast 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 his signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed on 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, he, and his mother, and [his] brethren, and his disciples; and there they abode not many 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 at hand, 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 those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 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 scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money, and overthrew 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 them that sold the doves he said, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise. 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 was written, Zeal for thy house shall eat me up. 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 The Jews therefore answered and said unto him, What sign showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest 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 unto 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 The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou 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 spake of the temple of his body. 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he spake this; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus 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 when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, many believed on his name, beholding his signs which he did. 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 did not trust himself unto them, for that he knew all men, 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
25 and because he needed not that any one should bear witness concerning 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.
