NAS 1 Therefore when the Lord 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, NAS 2 (although Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples were), NIV 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. NAS 3 He left Judea and went away again into Galilee. NIV 3 When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. NAS 4 And He had to pass through Samaria. NIV 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. NAS 5 So He came to a city of Samaria called Sychar, near the parcel 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. NAS 6 and Jacob's well was there. So Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting 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. NAS 7 There came a woman of Samaria 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?" NAS 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.) NAS 9 Therefore the Samaritan woman said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me for a 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. ) NAS 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." NAS 11 She 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? NAS 12 "You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?" 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?" NAS 13 Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; NIV 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, NAS 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give 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." NAS 15 The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way 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." NAS 16 He said to her, "Go, call your husband and come here." NIV 16 He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back." NAS 17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have correctly 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. NAS 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; this you have said 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." NAS 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. NAS 20 "Our fathers worshiped in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men 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." NAS 21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in 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. NAS 22 "You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for 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. NAS 23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks 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. NAS 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." NAS 25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ ); when that One comes, He will declare 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." NAS 26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He." NIV 26 Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he." NAS 27 At this point His disciples came, and they were amazed that He had been speaking with a woman, yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why do You speak 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?" NAS 28 So the woman left her waterpot, and went 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, NAS 29 "Come, see a man who told me all the things that I have done; this is not the Christ, is it?" NIV 29 "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ ?" NAS 30 They went out of the city, and were coming to Him. NIV 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him. NAS 31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat." NIV 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, "Rabbi, eat something." NAS 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." NAS 33 So the disciples were saying to one another, "No one brought Him anything to eat, did he?" NIV 33 Then his disciples said to each other, "Could someone have brought him food?" NAS 34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work. NIV 34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. NAS 35 "Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest '? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are 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. NAS 36 "Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that 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. NAS 37 "For in this case the saying is true, 'One sows and another reaps.' NIV 37 Thus the saying 'One sows and another reaps' is true. NAS 38 "I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor." 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." NAS 39 From that city many of the Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all the things 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." NAS 40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they were 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. NAS 41 Many more believed because of His word; NIV 41 And because of his words many more became believers. NAS 42 and they were saying to the woman, "It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this One is indeed 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."
