John 4:1-42

NLT 1 Jesus knew the Pharisees had heard that he was baptizing and making more disciples than John NIV 1 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John— NLT 2 (though Jesus himself didn’t baptize them—his disciples did). NIV 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. NLT 3 So he left Judea and returned to Galilee. NIV 3 So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. NLT 4 He had to go through Samaria on the way. NIV 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. NLT 5 Eventually he came to the Samaritan village of Sychar, near the field 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. NLT 6 Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. NIV 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. NLT 7 Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” NIV 7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” NLT 8 He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food. NIV 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) NLT 9 The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” 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. ) NLT 10 Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give 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.” NLT 11 “But sir, you don’t have a rope or a bucket,” she said, “and this well is very deep. Where would you get this 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? NLT 12 And besides, do you think you’re greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well? How can you offer better water than he and his sons and his animals enjoyed?” 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 livestock?” NLT 13 Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. NIV 13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, NLT 14 But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” NIV 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” NLT 15 “Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.” 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.” NLT 16 “Go and get your husband,” Jesus told her. NIV 16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” NLT 17 “I don’t have a husband,” the woman replied. Jesus said, “You’re right! You don’t have a husband— NIV 17 “I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. NLT 18 for you have had five husbands, and you aren’t even married to the man you’re living with now. You certainly spoke the truth!” 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.” NLT 19 “Sir,” the woman said, “you must be a prophet. NIV 19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. NLT 20 So tell me, why is it that you Jews insist that Jerusalem is the only place of worship, while we Samaritans claim it is here at Mount Gerizim, where our ancestors worshiped?” NIV 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” NLT 21 Jesus replied, “Believe me, dear woman, the time is coming when it will no longer matter whether you worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. NIV 21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. NLT 22 You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes through the Jews. NIV 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. NLT 23 But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. NIV 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. NLT 24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” NIV 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” NLT 25 The woman said, “I know the Messiah is coming—the one who is called Christ. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” NIV 25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” NLT 26 Then Jesus told her, “I AM the Messiah!” NIV 26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.” NLT 27 Just then his disciples came back. They were shocked to find him talking to a woman, but none of them had the nerve to ask, “What do you want with her?” or “Why are you talking to 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?” NLT 28 The woman left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, NIV 28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, NLT 29 “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?” NIV 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” NLT 30 So the people came streaming from the village to see him. NIV 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him. NLT 31 Meanwhile, the disciples were urging Jesus, “Rabbi, eat something.” NIV 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.” NLT 32 But Jesus replied, “I have a kind of food you know nothing about.” NIV 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” NLT 33 “Did someone bring him food while we were gone?” the disciples asked each other. NIV 33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” NLT 34 Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work. NIV 34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. NLT 35 You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest. NIV 35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. NLT 36 The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life. What joy awaits both the planter and the harvester alike! NIV 36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. NLT 37 You know the saying, ‘One plants and another harvests.’ And it’s true. NIV 37 Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. NLT 38 I sent you to harvest where you didn’t plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest.” 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.” NLT 39 Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said, “He told me everything 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.” NLT 40 When they came out to see him, they begged him to stay in their village. So he stayed for two days, NIV 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. NLT 41 long enough for many more to hear his message and believe. NIV 41 And because of his words many more became believers. NLT 42 Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not just because of what you told us, but because we have heard him ourselves. Now we know that he 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.”
