1 Therefore, when the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2 (Though Jesus himself did not baptize, but his disciples did,)
3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4 He needed to go through Samaria.
5 Then he came to Sychar a city of Samaria, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Therefore, Jesus being wearied with his journey, sat on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, Give me a drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away into the city to buy food.)
9 Then the woman of Samaria said to him, How is it that you, being a Jew, ask me, a women of Samaria, for a drink? For the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that said to you, ‘Give me a drink’; you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water.
11 The woman said to him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from where then do you get that living water?
12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank from it himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said to her, Who ever drinks of this water shall thirst again:
14 But who ever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman said to him, Sir, give me this water, so that I do not thirst, nor come here to draw.
16 Jesus said to her, Go, call your husband, and come here.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have well said, ‘I have no husband’.
18 For you have had five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband: in that you said truthfully.
19 The woman said to him, Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain; and you say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus said to her, Woman, believe me, the time is coming, when you shall neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 You do not know what you worship: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the time is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman said to him, I know that Messiah is coming, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus said to her, I that speak to you am he.
27 And upon this came his disciples, and marveled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What do you seek? or, Why do you talk with her?
28 The woman then left her water jar, and went her way into the city, and said to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that I have ever done: is not this the Christ?
30 Then they went out of the city, and came to him.
31 In the mean while his disciples asked him, Master, eat.
32 But he said to them, I have food to eat that you do not know of.
33 Therefore, the disciples said one to another, Has anyone brought him something to eat?
34 Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest? Listen, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36 And he that reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit unto life eternal: that both he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together.
37 And here is a true saying, ‘One sows, and another reaps.’
38 I sent you to reap where you did not labor: other men labored, and you are entering into their labors.
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him because of the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they requested that he would stay with them: and he stayed there two days.
41 And many more believed because of his own teaching;
42 And said to the woman, Now we believe, not because of your saying, but because we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.
43 Now after two days he departed from there, and went into Galilee.
44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet has no honor in his own country.
45 Then when he came into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went to the feast.
46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water into wine. There was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judaea to Galilee, he went to him, and asked him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
48 Then Jesus said to him, Except you see signs and wonders, you will not believe.
49 The nobleman said to him, Sir, come down before my child dies.
50 Jesus said to him, Go your way. Your son lives. The man believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him, and he went his way.
51 As he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Your son lives.
52 He then inquired of them the time when he began to get better. They said to him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
53 So the father knew that it was at the same time, in the which Jesus said to him, Your son lives. And he and his whole house believed.
54 Again, this is the second miracle that Jesus did, when he came out of Judaea into Galilee.
