John 4

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 But when Jesus found out about the [hearing of the] Pharisees’s rumor that He was more acquiring disciples and baptizing than John,
2 although Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples, -
3 He left Judah and went back to Galilee.

4 It was necessary for Him to pass through Samaria.
5 So He comes to the city of Samaria, called Sychar, near a piece of land given to Jacob by his son Joseph.
6 There was a well of Jacob. Jesus, having labored from the way, sat down at the well. It was about six o’clock.
7 A woman comes from Samaria to draw water. Jesus tells her: give me a drink.
eight For his disciples went away to the city to buy food.
nine The Samaritan woman tells Him: how do you, being a Jew, ask me to drink from me, the Samaritan? for the Jews do not communicate with the Samaritans.
ten Jesus answered her: if you knew the gift of God and Who says to you: give Me a drink, you yourself would ask Him, and He would give you living water.
eleven The woman says to him: Sir! you have nothing to draw, but the well is deep; where did you get live water?
12 Are you really more than our father Jacob, who gave us this well and drank from it himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered her: everyone who drinks this water will thirst again,
fourteen but whoever drinks the water that I will give him, he will not thirst forever; but the water that I will give him will become in him a source of water flowing into eternal life.
fifteen The woman says to him: Sir! give me this water so that I do not have thirst and do not come here to draw.
16 Jesus says to her: Go, call your husband and come here.
17 The woman said in response: I do not have a husband. Jesus says to her: you said the truth that you have no husband,
18 for you had five husbands, and the one you have now is not your husband; that's right you said.
19 The woman says to him: Lord! I see that you are a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you say that the place where you should worship is in Jerusalem.
21 Jesus says to her: Believe Me, the time is coming when you will not worship the Father both on this mountain and not in Jerusalem.
22 You do not know what you are bowing to, but we know what we are bowing for salvation from the Jews.
23 But the time will come and it will already be when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such worshipers for Himself.
24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman says to him: I know that the Messiah will come, that is, Christ; when he comes, he will tell us everything.
26 Jesus says to her: it is I who speak with you.

27 At that time His disciples came, and were surprised that He was speaking with a woman; However, no one said: What do you require? or: what are you talking about with her?
28 Then the woman left her water carrier and went into the city, and said to the people:
29th go, look at the Man who told me everything that I did: is he not Christ?
thirty They left the city and went to him.
31 Meanwhile, the disciples asked Him, saying: Rabbi! eat it.
32 But He told them: I have food that you do not know.
33 Therefore, the disciples said among themselves: Has anyone brought him something to eat?
34 Jesus tells them: My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to complete His work.
35 Do you not say that another four months and the harvest will come? But I say unto you, raise up your eyes and look at the fields, how they have turned white and have ripened to the harvest.
36 The reaper receives the reward and collects the fruit into eternal life, so that he who sows and reaps together will rejoice,
37 for in this case the saying is true: one sows, and the other reaps.
38 I sent you to reap what you did not work on: others worked, and you went into their work.
39 And many Samaritans from that city believed in Him according to the woman who testified that He told her everything that she had done.
40 And therefore, when the Samaritans came to Him, they asked Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
41 And even more believed on His word.
42 And they said to that woman: we do not believe in your speeches any more, for we ourselves have heard and learned that He is truly the Savior of the world, Christ.

43 After two days He went out and went to Galilee,
44 for Jesus himself testified that the prophet has no honor in his own country.
45 When He came to Galilee, the Galileans accepted Him, seeing everything that He did in Jerusalem on the feast, because they also went to the feast.
46 So Jesus again came to Cana of Galilee, where he turned the water into wine. In Capernaum there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick.
47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he came to Him and asked Him to come and heal his son, who was near death.
48 Jesus said to him: you will not believe unless you see signs and wonders.
49 The courtier says to him: Lord! come until my son dies.
50 Jesus tells him: go, your son is well. He believed the word Jesus told him and went.
51 On the road his servants met him and said: your son is healthy.
52 He asked them: what time did he feel better? He was told: yesterday at the seventh hour a fever left him.
53 From this, the father learned that this was the hour in which Jesus told him: your son is healthy, and he and his whole house have believed.
54 This second miracle was performed by Jesus, returning from Judea to Galilee.
