1 When Jesus knew that the Pharisees heard He was making and baptizing more disciples than John 1 The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John,
2 (though Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples were), 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.
3 He left Judea and went again to Galilee. 3 When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.
4 He had to travel through Samaria, 4 Now he had to go through Samaria.
5 so He came to a town of Samaria called Sychar near the property that Jacob had given his son Joseph. 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph.
6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, worn out from His journey, sat down at the well. It was about six in the evening. 6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. "Give Me a drink," Jesus said to her, 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?"
8 for His disciples had gone into town to buy food. 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 "How is it that You, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" she asked Him. For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans. )
10 Jesus answered, "If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would ask Him, and He would give you living water." 10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
11 "Sir," said the woman, "You don't even have a bucket, and the well is deep. So where do you get this 'living water'? 11 "Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?
12 You aren't greater than our father Jacob, are you? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and livestock." 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?"
13 Jesus said, "Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
14 But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again-ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life." 14 but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
15 "Sir," the woman said to Him, "give me this water so I won't get thirsty and come here to draw water." 15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water so that I won't get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water."
16 "Go call your husband," He told her, "and come back here." 16 He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back."
17 "I don't have a husband," she answered. "You have correctly said, 'I don't have a husband,' " Jesus said. 17 "I have no husband," she replied. Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband.
18 "For you've had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true." 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true."
19 "Sir," the woman replied, "I see that You are a prophet. 19 "Sir," the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, yet you [Jews] say that the place to worship is in Jerusalem." 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem."
21 Jesus told her, "Believe Me, woman, an hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 21 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know. We worship what we do know, because salvation is from the Jews. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.
23 But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship Him. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will explain everything to us." 25 The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."
26 "I am [He]," Jesus told her, "the One speaking to you." 26 Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he."
27 Just then His disciples arrived, and they were amazed that He was talking with a woman. Yet no one said, "What do You want?" or "Why are You talking with her?" 27 Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, "What do you want?" or "Why are you talking with her?"
28 Then the woman left her water jar, went into town, and told the men, 28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people,
29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could this be the Messiah?" 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ ?"
30 They left the town and made their way to Him. 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him.
31 In the meantime the disciples kept urging Him, "Rabbi, eat something." 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something."
32 But He said, "I have food to eat that you don't know about." 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about."
33 The disciples said to one another, "Could someone have brought Him something to eat?" 33 Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?"
34 "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work," Jesus told them. 34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
35 "Don't you say, 'There are still four more months, then comes the harvest'? Listen [to what] I'm telling you: Open your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ready for harvest. 35 Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.
36 The reaper is already receiving pay and gathering fruit for eternal life, so the sower and reaper can rejoice together. 36 Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.
37 For in this case the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.' 37 Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true.
38 I sent you to reap what you didn't labor for; others have labored, and you have benefited from their labor." 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor."
39 Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of what the woman said when she testified, "He told me everything I ever did." 39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did."
40 Therefore, when the Samaritans came to Him, they asked Him to stay with them, and He stayed there two days. 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days.
41 Many more believed because of what He said. 41 And because of his words many more became believers.
42 And they told the woman, "We no longer believe because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this really is the Savior of the world." 42 They said to the woman, "We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world."
43 After two days He left there for Galilee. 43 After the two days he left for Galilee.
44 Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.)
45 When they entered Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him because they had seen everything He did in Jerusalem during the festival. For they also had gone to the festival. 45 When he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him. They had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, for they also had been there.
46 Then He went again to Cana of Galilee, where He had turned the water into wine. There was a certain royal official whose son was ill at Capernaum. 46 Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum.
47 When this man heard that Jesus had come from Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and pleaded with Him to come down and heal his son, for he was about to die. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.
48 Jesus told him, "Unless you [people] see signs and wonders, you will not believe." 48 "Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe."
49 "Sir," the official said to Him, "come down before my boy dies!" 49 The royal official said, "Sir, come down before my child dies."
50 "Go," Jesus told him, "your son will live." The man believed what Jesus said to him and departed. 50 Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at his word and departed.
51 While he was still going down, his slaves met him saying that his boy was alive. 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.
52 He asked them at what time he got better. "Yesterday at seven in the morning the fever left him," they answered. 52 When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, "The fever left him yesterday at the seventh hour."
53 The father realized this was the very hour at which Jesus had told him, "Your son will live." Then he himself believed, along with his whole household. 53 Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live." So he and all his household believed.
54 This therefore was the second sign Jesus performed after He came from Judea to Galilee. 54 This was the second miraculous sign that Jesus performed, having come from Judea to Galilee.
