John 4:31-45

ESV 31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, "Rabbi, eat." MSG 31 In the meantime, the disciples pressed him, "Rabbi, eat. Aren't you going to eat?" ESV 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you do not know about." MSG 32 He told them, "I have food to eat you know nothing about." ESV 33 So the disciples said to one another, "Has anyone brought him something to eat?" MSG 33 The disciples were puzzled. "Who could have brought him food?" ESV 34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. MSG 34 Jesus said, "The food that keeps me going is that I do the will of the One who sent me, finishing the work he started. ESV 35 Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, then comes the harvest'? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. MSG 35 As you look around right now, wouldn't you say that in about four months it will be time to harvest? Well, I'm telling you to open your eyes and take a good look at what's right in front of you. These Samaritan fields are ripe. It's harvest time! ESV 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. MSG 36 "The Harvester isn't waiting. He's taking his pay, gathering in this grain that's ripe for eternal life. Now the Sower is arm in arm with the Harvester, triumphant. ESV 37 For here the saying holds true, 'One sows and another reaps.' MSG 37 That's the truth of the saying, 'This one sows, that one harvests.' ESV 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor." MSG 38 I sent you to harvest a field you never worked. Without lifting a finger, you have walked in on a field worked long and hard by others." ESV 39 Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me all that I ever did." MSG 39 Many of the Samaritans from that village committed themselves to him because of the woman's witness: "He knew all about the things I did. He knows me inside and out!" ESV 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. MSG 40 They asked him to stay on, so Jesus stayed two days. ESV 41 And many more believed because of his word. MSG 41 A lot more people entrusted their lives to him when they heard what he had to say. ESV 42 They said to the woman, "It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world." MSG 42 They said to the woman, "We're no longer taking this on your say-so. We've heard it for ourselves and know it for sure. He's the Savior of the world!" ESV 43 After the two days he departed for Galilee. MSG 43 After the two days he left for Galilee. ESV 44 (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown.) MSG 44 Now, Jesus knew well from experience that a prophet is not respected in the place where he grew up. ESV 45 So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the feast. For they too had gone to the feast. MSG 45 So when he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, but only because they were impressed with what he had done in Jerusalem during the Passover Feast, not that they really had a clue about who he was or what he was up to.
