(Joh 4:1) When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
(Joh 4:2) (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
(Joh 4:3) He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
(Joh 4:4) And he must needs go through Samaria.
(Joh 4:5) 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.
(Joh 4:6) 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.
(Joh 4:7) There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
(Joh 4:8) (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
(Joh 4:9) 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.
(Joh 4:10) 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.
(Joh 4:11) 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?
(Joh 4:12) Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
(Joh 4:13) Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
(Joh 4:14) 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.
(Joh 4:15) The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
(Joh 4:16) Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
(Joh 4:17) The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
(Joh 4:18) For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
(Joh 4:19) The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
(Joh 4:20) Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
(Joh 4:21) Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
(Joh 4:22) Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
(Joh 4:23) 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.
(Joh 4:24) God {is} a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship {him} in spirit and in truth.
(Joh 4:25) The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
(Joh 4:26) Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am {he}.
(Joh 4:27) 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?
(Joh 4:28) The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
(Joh 4:29) Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
(Joh 4:30) Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
(Joh 4:31) In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
(Joh 4:32) But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
(Joh 4:33) Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him {ought} to eat?
(Joh 4:34) Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
(Joh 4:35) 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.
(Joh 4:36) And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
(Joh 4:37) And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
(Joh 4:38) I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
(Joh 4:39) 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.
(Joh 4:40) So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
(Joh 4:41) And many more believed because of his own word;
(Joh 4:42) 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.
(Joh 4:43) Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
(Joh 4:44) For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
(Joh 4:45) 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.
(Joh 4:46) 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.
(Joh 4:47) 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.
(Joh 4:48) Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
(Joh 4:49) The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
(Joh 4:50) 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.
(Joh 4:51) And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told {him}, saying, Thy son liveth.
(Joh 4:52) Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
(Joh 4:53) 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.
(Joh 4:54) This {is} again the second miracle {that} Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
