John 4

LEB 1 Now when Jesus knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John NIV 1 The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, LEB 2 (although Jesus himself was not baptizing, but his disciples), NIV 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. LEB 3 he left Judea and departed again for Galilee. NIV 3 When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. LEB 4 And it was necessary [for] him to go through Samaria. NIV 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. LEB 5 Now he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the piece of land that 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. LEB 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. 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. LEB 7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me [water] to drink." NIV 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?" LEB 8 (For his disciples had gone away into the town so that they could buy food.) NIV 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) LEB 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.) 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. ) LEB 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." 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." LEB 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? NIV 11 "Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? LEB 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?" 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?" LEB 13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again. NIV 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, LEB 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." 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." LEB 15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or 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." LEB 16 He said to her, "Go, call your husband and come here." NIV 16 He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back." LEB 17 The woman answered and said to him, "I do not have a husband." Jesus said to her, "You have said rightly, 'I do not have a husband,' NIV 17 "I have no husband," she replied. Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. LEB 18 for you have had five husbands, and [the one] whom you have now is not your husband; this you have said truthfully!" 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." LEB 19 The woman said to him, "Sir, I see that you are a prophet. NIV 19 "Sir," the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet. LEB 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you [people] say that in Jerusalem is the place where it is necessary to worship." NIV 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem." LEB 21 Jesus said to her, "Believe me, woman, that an hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. NIV 21 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. LEB 22 You worship what you do not 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. LEB 23 But an hour is coming--and now is [here]--when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for indeed the Father seeks such [people] [to be] his worshipers. 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. LEB 24 God [is] spirit, and the ones who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." NIV 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." LEB 25 The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (the one called Christ); "whenever that one comes, he will proclaim all [things] to us." NIV 25 The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." LEB 26 Jesus said to her, "I, the one speaking to you, am [he]. NIV 26 Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he." LEB 27 And at this [point] his disciples came, and they were astonished that he was speaking with a woman. However, no one said, "What do you seek?" or "Why are you speaking 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?" LEB 28 So the woman left her water jar and went away into the town and said to the people, NIV 28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, LEB 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I have ever done! Perhaps this one is the Christ?" NIV 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ ?" LEB 30 They went out from the town and were coming to him. NIV 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him. LEB 31 In the meanwhile the disciples were asking him, saying, "Rabbi, eat [something]!" NIV 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something." LEB 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you do not know about." NIV 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about." LEB 33 So the disciples began to say to one another, "No one brought him [anything] to eat, [did they]?" NIV 33 Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?" LEB 34 Jesus said to them, "My food is that I do the will of the one who sent me and complete his work. NIV 34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. LEB 35 Do you not say, 'There are yet four months and the harvest comes'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, that they are white for harvest already. 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. LEB 36 The one who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit for eternal life, in order that the one who sows and the one who reaps can rejoice 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. LEB 37 For in this [instance] the saying is true, 'It is one who sows and another who reaps.' NIV 37 Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true. LEB 38 I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have worked, and you have entered into their 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." LEB 39 Now from that town many of the Samaritans believed in him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me everything that I have 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." LEB 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they began asking 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. LEB 41 And many more believed because of his word, NIV 41 And because of his words many more became believers. LEB 42 And they were saying to the woman, "No longer because of {what you said} do we believe, for we ourselves have heard, and we 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." LEB 43 And after the two days he departed from there into Galilee. NIV 43 After the two days he left for Galilee. LEB 44 For Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own homeland. NIV 44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) LEB 45 So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, [because they] had seen all [the things] he had done in Jerusalem at the feast (for they themselves had also come to the feast). 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. LEB 46 Now he came again to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And [there] was at Capernaum 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. LEB 47 This man, [when he] heard that Jesus had come from Judea into Galilee, went to him and asked that he come down and heal his son, for he 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. LEB 48 So Jesus said to him, "Unless you [people] see signs and wonders, you will never believe!" NIV 48 "Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe." LEB 49 The royal official said to him, "Sir, come down before my child dies!" NIV 49 The royal official said, "Sir, come down before my child dies." LEB 50 Jesus said to him, "Go, your son will live." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he departed. NIV 50 Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at his word and departed. LEB 51 Now [as] he was going down, his slaves met him, saying that his child was alive. NIV 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. LEB 52 So he inquired from them the hour at which he had gotten better. Then they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him." 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." LEB 53 So the father knew that [it was] that same hour at which Jesus said to him, "Your son will live," and he himself believed, and his whole household. 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. LEB 54 Now this [is] again a second sign Jesus performed [when he] came from Judea into Galilee. NIV 54 This was the second miraculous sign that Jesus performed, having come from Judea to Galilee.
