6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, 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.

8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor 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,

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 at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk , then that which is worse: but 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 miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth 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 they continued there 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.

14 And 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 when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the 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 said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an 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 And his disciples remembered that it was written , The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up . 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest 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 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building , and wilt thou rear 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 risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; 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, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles 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 commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man. 25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
