John 4

NKJV 1 Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John NIV 1 The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, NKJV 2 (though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples), NIV 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. NKJV 3 He left Judea and departed again to Galilee. NIV 3 When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. NKJV 4 But He needed to go through Samaria. NIV 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. NKJV 5 So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave 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. NKJV 6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by 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. NKJV 7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink." NIV 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?" NKJV 8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. NIV 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) NKJV 9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, 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. ) NKJV 10 Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a 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." NKJV 11 The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that 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? NKJV 12 Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as 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?" NKJV 13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, NIV 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, NKJV 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting 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." NKJV 15 The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw." 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." NKJV 16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here." NIV 16 He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back." NKJV 17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,' NIV 17 "I have no husband," she replied. Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. NKJV 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly." 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." NKJV 19 The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. NIV 19 "Sir," the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet. NKJV 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship." NIV 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem." NKJV 21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, 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. NKJV 22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. NIV 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. NKJV 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 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. NKJV 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." NIV 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." NKJV 25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things." NIV 25 The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." NKJV 26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He." NIV 26 Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he." NKJV 27 And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with a woman; yet no one said, "What do You seek?" 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?" NKJV 28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, NIV 28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, NKJV 29 "Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?" NIV 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ ?" NKJV 30 Then they went out of the city and came to Him. NIV 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him. NKJV 31 In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat." NIV 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something." NKJV 32 But He said to them, "I have food to eat of which you do not know." NIV 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about." NKJV 33 Therefore the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?" NIV 33 Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?" NKJV 34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. NIV 34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. NKJV 35 Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for 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. NKJV 36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may 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. NKJV 37 For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.' NIV 37 Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true. NKJV 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors." 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." NKJV 39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did." 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." NKJV 40 So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged 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. NKJV 41 And many more believed because of His own word. NIV 41 And because of his words many more became believers. NKJV 42 Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, 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." NKJV 43 Now after the two days He departed from there and went to Galilee. NIV 43 After the two days he left for Galilee. NKJV 44 For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. NIV 44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) NKJV 45 So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had gone 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. NKJV 46 So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum. 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. NKJV 47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. 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. NKJV 48 Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe." NIV 48 "Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe." NKJV 49 The nobleman said to Him, "Sir, come down before my child dies!" NIV 49 The royal official said, "Sir, come down before my child dies." NKJV 50 Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your son lives." So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way. NIV 50 Jesus replied, "You may go. Your son will live." The man took Jesus at his word and departed. NKJV 51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him, saying, "Your son lives!" NIV 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. NKJV 52 Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And 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." NKJV 53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." 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. NKJV 54 This again is the second sign Jesus did when He had come out of Judea into Galilee. NIV 54 This was the second miraculous sign that Jesus performed, having come from Judea to Galilee.
