Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
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 invited, and his disciples, to the marriage. 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
3 And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith 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 saith to her: Woman, what is that to me and to thee? My 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 to the waiters: Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye. 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6 Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three measures 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 to 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 Jesus saith to them: Draw out now and carry to the chief steward of the feast. And they carried 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 chief steward had tasted the water made wine and knew not whence it was, but the waiters knew who had drawn the water: the chief steward 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 to him: Every man at first setteth 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 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 Capharnaum, he and his mother and his brethren and his disciples: and they remained 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.
13 And the pasch 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 them 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, as it were, a scourge of little cords, he drove them all out of the temple, the sheep also and the oxen: and the money of the changers he poured out, and the tables he overthrew. 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 doves he said: Take these things hence, and make not the house of my Father a house of traffic. 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 thy house hath eaten me up. 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 The Jews, therefore, answered, and said to him: What sign dost thou shew unto us, seeing thou dost 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 The Jews then said: Six and forty 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 spoke of the temple of his body. 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
22 When therefore he was risen again from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this: and they believed the scripture and the word that 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 at Jerusalem, at the pasch, upon the festival day, many believed in his name, seeing 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 should give testimony 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.
