Jesus Goes to Galilee

1 Therefore when athe Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and bbaptizing more disciples than John 2 (although aJesus Himself was not baptizing, but His bdisciples were), 3 He left aJudea and went away bagain into Galilee. 4 And He had to pass through aSamaria. 5 So He *came to a city of aSamaria called Sychar, near bthe parcel of ground that cJacob gave to his son Joseph; 6 and Jacob’s well was there. So Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting thus by the well. It was about Ithe sixth hour.

The Woman of Samaria

7 ¶ There *came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus *said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8 For His adisciples had gone away into bthe city to buy food. 9 Therefore the aSamaritan woman *said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask me for a drink since I am a Samaritan woman?” (For bJews have no dealings with Samaritans.) 10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you aliving water.” 11 She *said to Him, “ISir, You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep; where then do You get that aliving water? 12 You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who agave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?” 13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him ashall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to beternal life.”

15 ¶ The woman *said to Him, “ISir, agive me this water, so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way here to draw.” 16 He *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 correctly said, ‘I have no husband’; 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; this you have said truly.” 19 The woman *said to Him, “ISir, I perceive that You are aa prophet. 20 aOur fathers worshiped in bthis mountain, and you [people] say that cin Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.” 21 Jesus *said to her, “Woman, believe Me, aan hour is coming when bneither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 aYou worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for bsalvation is from the Jews. 23 But aan hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father bin spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 God is Ispirit, and those who worship Him must worship ain spirit and truth.” 25 The woman *said to Him, “I know that aMessiah is coming (bHe who is called Christ); when that One comes, He will declare all things to us.” 26 Jesus *said to her, aI who speak to you am [He].”

27 ¶ At this point His adisciples came, and they were amazed that He had been speaking with a woman, yet no one said, “What do You seek?” or, “Why do You speak with her?” 28 So the woman left her waterpot, and went into the city and *said to the men, 29 “Come, see a man awho told me all the things that I [have] done; bthis is not Ithe Christ, is it?” 30 They went out of the city, and were coming to Him.

31 ¶ Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, saying, “aRabbi, eat.” 32 But He said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the adisciples were saying to one another, “No one brought Him [anything] to eat, did he?” 34 Jesus *said to them, “My food is to ado the will of Him who sent Me and to baccomplish His work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and [then] comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white afor harvest. 36 Already he who reaps is receiving awages and is gathering bfruit for clife eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this [case] the saying is true, ‘aOne sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”

The Samaritans

39 ¶ From athat city many of the Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, “bHe told me all the things that I [have] done.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to Jesus, they were asking Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days. 41 Many more believed because of His word; 42 and they were saying to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this One is indeed athe Savior of the world.”

43 ¶ After athe two days He went forth from there into Galilee. 44 For Jesus Himself testified that aa prophet has no honor in his own country. 45 So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, ahaving seen all the things that He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they themselves also went to the feast.

Healing a Nobleman’s Son

46 ¶ Therefore He came again to aCana of Galilee bwhere He had made the water wine. And there was a royal official whose son was sick at cCapernaum. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come aout of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and was imploring [Him] to come down and heal his son; for he was at the point of death. 48 So Jesus said to him, “Unless you [people] see Iasigns and awonders, you [simply] will not believe.” 49 The royal official *said to Him, “ISir, come down before my child dies.” 50 Jesus *said to him, aGo; your son lives.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and started off. 51 As he was now going down, [his] slaves met him, saying that his Ison was living. 52 So he inquired of them the hour when he began to get better. Then they said to him, “Yesterday at the Iseventh hour the fever left him.” 53 So the father knew that [it was] at that hour in which Jesus said to him, “Your son lives; and he himself believed and ahis whole household. 54 This is again a asecond Isign that Jesus performed when He had bcome out of Judea into Galilee.

Christ talketh with a woman of Samaria, and revealeth himself to her.

1 ¶ When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) 3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. 4 And he must needs go through Samaria. 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. 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. 7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. 8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 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. 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. 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? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 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. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. 17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. 19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 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. 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 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. 24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth. 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. 26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am [he].

His disciples marvel.

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? 28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? 30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.

Many Samaritans believe on him.

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. 40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. 41 And many more believed because of his own word; 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.

He departeth into Galilee, and healeth the ruler's son that lay sick at Capernaum.

43 ¶ Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee. 44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country. 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. 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. 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. 48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. 49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. 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. 51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told [him], saying, Thy son liveth. 52 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. 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. 54 This [is] again the second miracle [that] Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
