CEB 1 Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was making more disciples and baptizing more than John ( NRS 1 Now when Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard, "Jesus is making and baptizing more disciples than John" CEB 2 although Jesus' disciples were baptizing, not Jesus himself). NRS 2 —although it was not Jesus himself but his disciples who baptized— CEB 3 Therefore, he left Judea and went back to Galilee. NRS 3 he left Judea and started back to Galilee. CEB 4 Jesus had to go through Samaria. NRS 4 But he had to go through Samaria. CEB 5 He came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, which was near the land Jacob had given to his son Joseph. NRS 5 So he came to a Samaritan city called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. CEB 6 Jacob's well was there. Jesus was tired from his journey, so he sat down at the well. It was about noon. NRS 6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired out by his journey, was sitting by the well. It was about noon. CEB 7 A Samaritan woman came to the well to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me some water to drink." NRS 7 A Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink." CEB 8 His disciples had gone into the city to buy him some food. NRS 8 (His disciples had gone to the city to buy food.) CEB 9 The Samaritan woman asked, "Why do you, a Jewish man, ask for something to drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" (Jews and Samaritans didn't associate with each other.) NRS 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria?" (Jews do not share things in common with Samaritans.) CEB 10 Jesus responded, "If you recognized God's gift and who is saying to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,' you would be asking him and he would give you living water." NRS 10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, "Give me a drink,' you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water." CEB 11 The woman said to him, "Sir, you don't have a bucket and the well is deep. Where would you get this living water? NRS 11 The woman said to him, "Sir, you have no bucket, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? CEB 12 You aren't greater than our father Jacob, are you? He gave this well to us, and he drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock." NRS 12 Are you greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us the well, and with his sons and his flocks drank from it?" CEB 13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, NRS 13 Jesus said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, CEB 14 but whoever drinks from the water that I will give will never be thirsty again. The water that I give will become in those who drink it a spring of water that bubbles up into eternal life." NRS 14 but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life." CEB 15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I will never be thirsty and will never need to come here to draw water!" NRS 15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I may never be thirsty or have to keep coming here to draw water." CEB 16 Jesus said to her, "Go, get your husband, and come back here." NRS 16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come back." CEB 17 The woman replied, "I don't have a husband." "You are right to say, ‘I don't have a husband,'" Jesus answered. NRS 17 The woman answered him, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You are right in saying, "I have no husband'; CEB 18 "You've had five husbands, and the man you are with now isn't your husband. You've spoken the truth." NRS 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one you have now is not your husband. What you have said is true!" CEB 19 The woman said, "Sir, I see that you are a prophet. NRS 19 The woman said to him, "Sir, I see that you are a prophet. CEB 20 Our ancestors worshipped on this mountain, but you and your people say that it is necessary to worship in Jerusalem." NRS 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem." CEB 21 Jesus said to her, "Believe me, woman, the time is coming when you and your people will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. NRS 21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. CEB 22 You and your people worship what you don't know; we worship what we know because salvation is from the Jews. NRS 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. CEB 23 But the time is coming—and is here!—when true worshippers will worship in spirit and truth. The Father looks for those who worship him this way. NRS 23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these to worship him. CEB 24 God is spirit, and it is necessary to worship God in spirit and truth." NRS 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." CEB 25 The woman said, "I know that the Messiah is coming, the one who is called the Christ. When he comes, he will teach everything to us." NRS 25 The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When he comes, he will proclaim all things to us." CEB 26 Jesus said to her, "I Am—the one who speaks with you." NRS 26 Jesus said to her, "I am he, the one who is speaking to you." CEB 27 Just then, Jesus' disciples arrived and were shocked that he was talking with a woman. But no one asked, "What do you want?" or "Why are you talking with her?" NRS 27 Just then his disciples came. They were astonished that he was speaking with a woman, but no one said, "What do you want?" or, "Why are you speaking with her?" CEB 28 The woman put down her water jar and went into the city. She said to the people, NRS 28 Then the woman left her water jar and went back to the city. She said to the people, CEB 29 "Come and see a man who has told me everything I've done! Could this man be the Christ?" NRS 29 "Come and see a man who told me everything I have ever done! He cannot be the Messiah, can he?" CEB 30 They left the city and were on their way to see Jesus. NRS 30 They left the city and were on their way to him. CEB 31 In the meantime the disciples spoke to Jesus, saying, "Rabbi, eat." NRS 31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, "Rabbi, eat something." CEB 32 Jesus said to them, "I have food to eat that you don't know about." NRS 32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you do not know about." CEB 33 The disciples asked each other, "Has someone brought him food?" NRS 33 So the disciples said to one another, "Surely no one has brought him something to eat?" CEB 34 Jesus said to them, "I am fed by doing the will of the one who sent me and by completing his work. NRS 34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to complete his work. CEB 35 Don't you have a saying, ‘Four more months and then it's time for harvest'? Look, I tell you: open your eyes and notice that the fields are already ripe for the harvest. NRS 35 Do you not say, "Four months more, then comes the harvest'? But I tell you, look around you, and see how the fields are ripe for harvesting. CEB 36 Those who harvest are receiving their pay and gathering fruit for eternal life so that those who sow and those who harvest can celebrate together. NRS 36 The reaper is already receiving wages and is gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. CEB 37 This is a true saying, that one sows and another harvests. NRS 37 For here the saying holds true, "One sows and another reaps.' CEB 38 I have sent you to harvest what you didn't work hard for; others worked hard, and you will share in their hard work." NRS 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor." CEB 39 Many Samaritans in that city believed in Jesus because of the woman's word when she testified, "He told me everything I've ever done." NRS 39 Many Samaritans from that city believed in him because of the woman's testimony, "He told me everything I have ever done." CEB 40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. NRS 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them; and he stayed there two days. CEB 41 Many more believed because of his word, NRS 41 And many more believed because of his word. CEB 42 and they said to the woman, "We no longer believe because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this one is truly the savior of the world." NRS 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 truly the Savior of the world." CEB 43 After two days Jesus left for Galilee. ( NRS 43 When the two days were over, he went from that place to Galilee CEB 44 Jesus himself had testified that prophets have no honor in their own country.) NRS 44 (for Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in the prophet's own country). CEB 45 When he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him because they had seen all the things he had done in Jerusalem during the festival, for they also had been at the festival. NRS 45 When he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, since they had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the festival; for they too had gone to the festival. CEB 46 He returned to Cana in Galilee where he had turned the water into wine. In Capernaum there was a certain royal official whose son was sick. NRS 46 Then he came again to Cana in Galilee where he had changed the water into wine. Now there was a royal official whose son lay ill in Capernaum. CEB 47 When he heard that Jesus was coming from Judea to Galilee, he went out to meet him and asked Jesus if he would come and heal his son, for his son was about to die. NRS 47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and begged him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. CEB 48 Jesus said to him, "Unless you see miraculous signs and wonders, you won't believe." NRS 48 Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe." CEB 49 The royal official said to him, "Lord, come before my son dies." NRS 49 The official said to him, "Sir, come down before my little boy dies." CEB 50 Jesus replied, "Go home. Your son lives." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and set out for his home. NRS 50 Jesus said to him, "Go; your son will live." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and started on his way. CEB 51 While he was on his way, his servants were already coming to meet him. They said, "Your son lives!" NRS 51 As he was going down, his slaves met him and told him that his child was alive. CEB 52 So he asked them at what time his son had started to get better. And they said, "The fever left him yesterday at about one o'clock in the afternoon." NRS 52 So he asked them the hour when he began to recover, and they said to him, "Yesterday at one in the afternoon the fever left him." CEB 53 Then the father realized that this was the hour when Jesus had said to him, "Your son lives." And he and his entire household believed in Jesus. NRS 53 The father realized that this was the hour when Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live." So he himself believed, along with his whole household. CEB 54 This was the second miraculous sign Jesus did while going from Judea to Galilee. NRS 54 Now this was the second sign that Jesus did after coming from Judea to Galilee.
