John 4

CEB 1 Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was making more disciples and baptizing more than John ( NIV 1 The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, CEB 2 although Jesus' disciples were baptizing, not Jesus himself). NIV 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. CEB 3 Therefore, he left Judea and went back to Galilee. NIV 3 When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. CEB 4 Jesus had to go through Samaria. NIV 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. CEB 5 He came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, which was near the land Jacob had given to his son Joseph. NIV 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. CEB 6 Jacob's well was there. Jesus was tired from his journey, so he sat down at the well. It was about noon. NIV 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. CEB 7 A Samaritan woman came to the well to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me some water to drink." NIV 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?" CEB 8 His disciples had gone into the city to buy him some food. NIV 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) CEB 9 The Samaritan woman asked, "Why do you, a Jewish man, ask for something to drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" (Jews and Samaritans didn't associate with each other.) NIV 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. ) CEB 10 Jesus responded, "If you recognized God's gift and who is saying to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,' you would be asking him and he would give you living water." NIV 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." CEB 11 The woman said to him, "Sir, you don't have a bucket and the well is deep. Where would you get this living water? NIV 11 "Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? CEB 12 You aren't greater than our father Jacob, are you? He gave this well to us, and he drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock." NIV 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?" CEB 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, NIV 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, CEB 14 but whoever drinks from the water that I will give will never be thirsty again. The water that I give will become in those who drink it a spring of water that bubbles up into eternal life." NIV 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." CEB 15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I will never be thirsty and will never need to come here to draw water!" NIV 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." CEB 16 Jesus said to her, "Go, get your husband, and come back here." NIV 16 He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back." CEB 17 The woman replied, "I don't have a husband." "You are right to say, ‘I don't have a husband,'" Jesus answered. NIV 17 "I have no husband," she replied. Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. CEB 18 "You've had five husbands, and the man you are with now isn't your husband. You've spoken the truth." NIV 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." CEB 19 The woman said, "Sir, I see that you are a prophet. NIV 19 "Sir," the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet. CEB 20 Our ancestors worshipped on this mountain, but you and your people say that it is necessary to worship in Jerusalem." NIV 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem." CEB 21 Jesus said to her, "Believe me, woman, the time is coming when you and your people will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. NIV 21 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. CEB 22 You and your people worship what you don't know; we worship what we know because salvation is from the Jews. NIV 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. CEB 23 But the time is coming—and is here!—when true worshippers will worship in spirit and truth. The Father looks for those who worship him this way. NIV 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. CEB 24 God is spirit, and it is necessary to worship God in spirit and truth." NIV 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." CEB 25 The woman said, "I know that the Messiah is coming, the one who is called the Christ. When he comes, he will teach everything to us." NIV 25 The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." CEB 26 Jesus said to her, "I Am—the one who speaks with you." NIV 26 Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he." CEB 27 Just then, Jesus' disciples arrived and were shocked that he was talking with a woman. But no one asked, "What do you want?" or "Why are you talking with her?" NIV 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?" CEB 28 The woman put down her water jar and went into the city. She said to the people, NIV 28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, CEB 29 "Come and see a man who has told me everything I've done! Could this man be the Christ?" NIV 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ ?" CEB 30 They left the city and were on their way to see Jesus. NIV 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him. CEB 31 In the meantime the disciples spoke to Jesus, saying, "Rabbi, eat." NIV 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something." CEB 32 Jesus said to them, "I have food to eat that you don't know about." NIV 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about." CEB 33 The disciples asked each other, "Has someone brought him food?" NIV 33 Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?" CEB 34 Jesus said to them, "I am fed by doing the will of the one who sent me and by completing his work. NIV 34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. CEB 35 Don't you have a saying, ‘Four more months and then it's time for harvest'? Look, I tell you: open your eyes and notice that the fields are already ripe for the harvest. NIV 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. CEB 36 Those who harvest are receiving their pay and gathering fruit for eternal life so that those who sow and those who harvest can celebrate together. NIV 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. CEB 37 This is a true saying, that one sows and another harvests. NIV 37 Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true. CEB 38 I have sent you to harvest what you didn't work hard for; others worked hard, and you will share in their hard work." NIV 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." CEB 39 Many Samaritans in that city believed in Jesus because of the woman's word when she testified, "He told me everything I've ever done." NIV 39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I ever did." CEB 40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. NIV 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. CEB 41 Many more believed because of his word, NIV 41 And because of his words many more became believers. CEB 42 and they said to the woman, "We no longer believe because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this one is truly the savior of the world." NIV 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." CEB 43 After two days Jesus left for Galilee. ( NIV 43 After the two days he left for Galilee. CEB 44 Jesus himself had testified that prophets have no honor in their own country.) NIV 44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) CEB 45 When he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him because they had seen all the things he had done in Jerusalem during the festival, for they also had been at the festival. NIV 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. CEB 46 He returned to Cana in Galilee where he had turned the water into wine. In Capernaum there was a certain royal official whose son was sick. NIV 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. CEB 47 When he heard that Jesus was coming from Judea to Galilee, he went out to meet him and asked Jesus if he would come and heal his son, for his son was about to die. NIV 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. CEB 48 Jesus said to him, "Unless you see miraculous signs and wonders, you won't believe." NIV 48 "Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe." CEB 49 The royal official said to him, "Lord, come before my son dies." NIV 49 The royal official said, "Sir, come down before my child dies." CEB 50 Jesus replied, "Go home. Your son lives." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and set out for his home. NIV 50 Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at his word and departed. CEB 51 While he was on his way, his servants were already coming to meet him. They said, "Your son lives!" NIV 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. CEB 52 So he asked them at what time his son had started to get better. And they said, "The fever left him yesterday at about one o'clock in the afternoon." NIV 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." CEB 53 Then the father realized that this was the hour when Jesus had said to him, "Your son lives." And he and his entire household believed in Jesus. NIV 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. CEB 54 This was the second miraculous sign Jesus did while going from Judea to Galilee. NIV 54 This was the second miraculous sign that Jesus performed, having come from Judea to Galilee.
