2 and also Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage; 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
3 and wine having failed, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, `Wine they have not;' 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
4 Jesus saith to her, `What -- to me and to thee, woman? not yet is mine hour come.' 4 "Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My time has not yet come."
5 His mother saith to the ministrants, `Whatever he may say to you -- do.' 5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
6 And there were there six water-jugs of stone, placed according to the purifying of the Jews, holding each 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 saith to them, `Fill the water-jugs with water;' and they filled them -- unto the brim; 7 Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
8 and he saith to them, `Draw out, now, and bear to the director of the apartment;' and they bare. 8 Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
9 And as the director of the apartment tasted the water become wine, and knew not whence it is, (but the ministrants knew, who have drawn the water,) the director of the feast doth call 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, the good wine doth set forth; and when they may have drunk freely, then the inferior; thou didst keep 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 beginning of the signs 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 Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples; and there they remained 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 nigh, 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 selling oxen, and sheep, and doves, and the money-changers sitting, 14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
15 and having made a whip of small cords, he put all forth out of the temple, also the sheep, and the oxen; and of the money-changers he poured out the coins, 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 those selling the doves he said, `Take these things hence; make not the house of my Father 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 And his disciples remembered that it is written, `The zeal of Thy house did eat me up;' 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
18 the Jews then answered and said to him, `What sign dost thou shew to us -- that 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 sanctuary, 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 sanctuary building, and wilt thou in three days raise it up?' 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 concerning the sanctuary of his body; 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
22 when, then, he was raised out of the dead, his disciples remembered that he said this to them, and they believed the Writing, and the word that Jesus 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 And as he was in Jerusalem, in the passover, in the feast, many believed in his name, beholding his signs that 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 and Jesus himself was not trusting himself to them, because of his knowing all [men], 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
25 and because he had no need that any should testify concerning man, for he himself was knowing what was in man. 25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
