4:1 When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard
that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
4:2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
4:3 He left Judea, and departed again into Galilee.
4:4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
4:5 Then he cometh to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar,
near to the parcel of ground, that Jacob gave to his son
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.
4:7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith
to her, Give me to drink.
4:8 (For his disciples had gone to the city to buy provisions.)
4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria to him, How is it that thou,
being a Jew, askest drink of me, who am a woman of Samaria? for
the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, If thou knewest the gift of
God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou
wouldst have asked him, and he would have given thee living
4:11 The woman saith to him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw
with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that
4:12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the
well, and drank of it himself, and his children, and his
4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, Whoever drinketh of this
water, shall thirst again:
4:14 But whoever 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.
4:15 The woman saith to him, Sir, give me this water, that I may
not thirst, neither come hither to draw.
4:16 Jesus saith to her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
4:17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said
to her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
4:18 For thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast,
is not thy husband: in that thou hast spoken truth.
4:19 The woman saith to him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a
4:20 Our fathers worshiped in this mountain; and ye say, that in
Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
4:21 Jesus saith to her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh,
when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem,
worship the Father.
4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship, for
salvation is from the Jews.
4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers
shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father
seeketh such to worship him.
4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him, must worship
[him] in spirit and in truth.
4:25 The woman saith to him, I know that Messiah cometh, who is
called Christ; when he is come, he will tell us all things.
4:26 Jesus saith to her, I that speak to thee am [he].
4:27 And upon this came his disciples, and marveled that he
talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or,
Why talkest thou with her?
4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went into the city,
and saith to the men,
4:29 Come, see a man who hath told me all things that ever I
did: is not this the Christ?
4:30 Then they went out of the city, and came to him.
4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master,
4:32 But he said to them, I have food to eat that ye know not
4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man
brought him [aught] to eat?
4:34 Jesus saith to them, My food is to do the will of him that
sent me, and to finish his work.
4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and [then] cometh
harvest? behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on
the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
4:36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit to
life eternal: that both he that soweth, and he that reapeth,
may rejoice together.
4:37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another
4:38 I sent you to reap that on which ye bestowed no labor:
other men labored, and ye have entered into their labors.
4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for
the saying of the woman, who testified, He told me all that
ever I did.
4:40 So when the Samaritans had come to him, they besought him
that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
4:41 And many more believed, because of his own word;
4:42 And said to 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 Savior of the world.
4:43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into
4:44 For Jesus himself testified that a prophet hath no honor in
his own country.
4:45 Then when he had come into Galilee, the Galileans received
him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the
feast: for they also went to the feast.
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.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea into Galilee,
he went to him, and besought him that he would come down, and
heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Then said Jesus to him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye
will not believe.
4:49 The nobleman saith to him, Sir, come down ere my child
4:50 Jesus saith to him, Go; thy son liveth. And the man
believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him, and he
4:51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and
told [him], saying, Thy son liveth.
4:52 Then he inquired of them the hour when he began to amend:
and they said to him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever
4:53 So the father knew that [it was] at the same hour in which
Jesus said to him, Thy son liveth: and he himself believed, and
his whole house.
4:54 This [is] again the second miracle [that] Jesus performed,
when he had come from Judea into Galilee.
