But he answered, "I have food to eat that you know nothing about."
So the disciples started asking among themselves, "Could somebody have brought him food?"
"My food," Jesus said to them, "is to obey the will of the one who sent me and to finish the work he gave me to do.
You have a saying, "Four more months and then the harvest.' But I tell you, take a good look at the fields; the crops are now ripe and ready to be harvested!
The one who reaps the harvest is being paid and gathers the crops for eternal life; so the one who plants and the one who reaps will be glad together.
For the saying is true, "Someone plants, someone else reaps.'
I have sent you to reap a harvest in a field where you did not work; others worked there, and you profit from their work."
Many of the Samaritans in that town believed in Jesus because the woman had said, "He told me everything I have ever done."
So when the Samaritans came to him, they begged him to stay with them, and Jesus stayed there two days.
Many more believed because of his message,
and they told the woman, "We believe now, not because of what you said, but because we ourselves have heard him, and we know that he really is the Savior of the world."
