Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
4 And it was necessary [for] him to go through Samaria. 4 Now he had to go through Samaria.
5 Now he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the piece of land that Jacob had given to 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 And Jacob's well was there, so Jesus, [because he] had become tired from the journey, simply sat down at the well. It was about the sixth hour. 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. Jesus said to her, "Give me [water] to drink." 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 away into the town so that they could buy food.) 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 So the Samaritan woman said to him, "How do you, being a Jew, ask from me [water] to drink, [since I] am a Samaritan woman?" (For Jews have no dealings 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 and said to her, "If you had known the gift of God and who it is who says to you, 'Give me [water] to drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given 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 The woman said to him, "Sir, you have no bucket and the well is deep! From where then 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 are not greater than our father Jacob, [are you], who gave us the well and drank from it himself, and his sons and his 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 answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again. 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
14 But whoever drinks of this water which I will give to him will never be thirsty for eternity, but the water which I will give to him will become in him a well of water springing up to 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."
