043:004:001
When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,


043:004:002
(Though Jesus himself baptized not,
but his disciples,)


043:004:003
He left Judaea,
and departed again into Galilee.


043:004:004
And he must needs go through Samaria.


043:004:005
Then cometh he to a city of Samaria,
which is called Sychar,
near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.


043:004:006
Now Jacob's well was there.
Jesus therefore,
being wearied with his journey,
sat thus on the well:
and it was about the sixth hour.


043:004:007
There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water:
Jesus saith unto her,
Give me to drink.


043:004:008
(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)


043:004:009
Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him,
How is it that thou,
being a Jew,
askest drink of me,
which am a woman of Samaria?
for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.


043:004:010
Jesus answered and said unto her,
If thou knewest the gift of God,
and who it is that saith to thee,
Give me to drink;
thou wouldest have asked of him,
and he would have given thee living water.


043:004:011
The woman saith unto him,
Sir,
thou hast nothing to draw with,
and the well is deep:
from whence then hast thou that living water?


043:004:012
Art thou greater than our father Jacob,
which gave us the well,
and drank thereof himself,
and his children,
and his cattle?


043:004:013
Jesus answered and said unto her,
Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:


043:004:014
But whosoever drinketh 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.


043:004:015
The woman saith unto him,
Sir,
give me this water,
that I thirst not,
neither come hither to draw.


043:004:016
Jesus saith unto her,
Go,
call thy husband,
and come hither.


043:004:017
The woman answered and said,
I have no husband.
Jesus said unto her,
Thou hast well said,
I have no husband:


043:004:018
For thou hast had five husbands;
and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband:
in that saidst thou truly.


043:004:019
The woman saith unto him,
Sir,
I perceive that thou art a prophet.


043:004:020
Our fathers worshipped in this mountain;
and ye say,
that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.


043:004:021
Jesus saith unto her,
Woman,
believe me,
the hour cometh,
when ye shall neither in this mountain,
nor yet at Jerusalem,
worship the Father.


043:004:022
Ye worship ye know not what:
we know what we worship:
for salvation is of the Jews.


043:004:023
But the hour cometh,
and now is,
when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
for the Father seeketh such to worship him.


043:004:024
God is a Spirit:
and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.


043:004:025
The woman saith unto him,
I know that Messias cometh,
which is called Christ:
when he is come,
he will tell us all things.


043:004:026
Jesus saith unto her,
I that speak unto thee am he.


043:004:027
And upon this came his disciples,
and marvelled that he talked with the woman:
yet no man said,
What seekest thou?
or,
Why talkest thou with her?


043:004:028
The woman then left her waterpot,
and went her way into the city,
and saith to the men,


043:004:029
Come,
see a man,
which told me all things that ever I did:
is not this the Christ?


043:004:030
Then they went out of the city,
and came unto him.


043:004:031
In the mean while his disciples prayed him,
saying,
Master,
eat.


043:004:032
But he said unto them,
I have meat to eat that ye know not of.


043:004:033
Therefore said the disciples one to another,
Hath any man brought him ought to eat?


043:004:034
Jesus saith unto them,
My meat is to do the will of him that sent me,
and to finish his work.


043:004:035
Say not ye,
There are yet four months,
and then cometh harvest?
behold,
I say unto you,
Lift up your eyes,
and look on the fields;
for they are white already to harvest.


043:004:036
And he that reapeth receiveth wages,
and gathereth fruit unto life eternal:
that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.


043:004:037
And herein is that saying true,
One soweth,
and another reapeth.


043:004:038
I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour:
other men laboured,
and ye are entered into their labours.


043:004:039
And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman,
which testified,
He told me all that ever I did.


043:004:040
So when the Samaritans were come unto him,
they besought him that he would tarry with them:
and he abode there two days.


043:004:041
And many more believed because of his own word;


043:004:042
And said unto the woman,
Now we believe,
not because of thy saying:
for we have heard him ourselves,
and know that this is indeed the Christ,
the Saviour of the world.


043:004:043
Now after two days he departed thence,
and went into Galilee.


043:004:044
For Jesus himself testified,
that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.


043:004:045
Then when he was come into Galilee,
the Galilaeans received him,
having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast:
for they also went unto the feast.


043:004:046
So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee,
where he made the water wine.
And there was a certain nobleman,
whose son was sick at Capernaum.


043:004:047
When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee,
he went unto him,
and besought him that he would come down,
and heal his son:
for he was at the point of death.


043:004:048
Then said Jesus unto him,
Except ye see signs and wonders,
ye will not believe.


043:004:049
The nobleman saith unto him,
Sir,
come down ere my child die.


043:004:050
Jesus saith unto him,
Go thy way;
thy son liveth.
And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him,
and he went his way.


043:004:051
And as he was now going down,
his servants met him,
and told him,
saying,
Thy son liveth.


043:004:052
Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend.
And they said unto him,
Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.


043:004:053
So the father knew that it was at the same hour,
in the which Jesus said unto him,
Thy son liveth:
and himself believed,
and his whole house.


043:004:054
This is again the second miracle that Jesus did,
when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
