New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
43 At the end of the two days' stay, Jesus went on into Galilee. 43 After the two days he left for Galilee.
44 He had previously said, "A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own country." 44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.)
45 The Galileans welcomed him, for they had been in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration and had seen all his miraculous signs. 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 In the course of his journey through Galilee, he arrived at the town of Cana, where he had turned the water into wine. There was a government official in the city of Capernaum whose son was very sick. 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 he heard that Jesus had come from Judea and was traveling in Galilee, he went over to Cana. He found Jesus and begged him to come to Capernaum with him to heal his son, who 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 asked, "Must I do miraculous signs and wonders before you people will believe in me?" 48 "Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe."
49 The official pleaded, "Lord, please come now before my little boy dies." 49 The royal official said, "Sir, come down before my child dies."
50 Then Jesus told him, "Go back home. Your son will live!" And the man believed Jesus' word and started home. 50 Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at his word and departed.
51 While he was on his way, some of his servants met him with the news that his son was alive and well. 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.
52 He asked them when the boy had begun to feel better, and they replied, "Yesterday afternoon at one o'clock his fever suddenly disappeared!" 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 Then the father realized it was the same time that Jesus had told him, "Your son will live." And the officer and his entire household believed in Jesus. 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 was Jesus' second miraculous sign in Galilee after coming from Judea. 54 This was the second miraculous sign that Jesus performed, having come from Judea to Galilee.
