1 Ut ergo cognovit Iesus quia audierunt pharisaei quia Iesus plures discipulos facit et baptizat quam Ioannes
2 - quamquam Iesus ipse non baptizaret sed discipuli eius -
3 reliquit Iudaeam et abiit iterum in Galilaeam.
4 Oportebat autem eum transire per Samariam.
5 Venit ergo in civitatem Samariae, quae dicitur Sichar, iuxta praedium, quod dedit Iacob Ioseph filio suo;
6 erat autem ibi fons Iacob. Iesus ergo fatigatus ex itinere sedebat sic super fontem; hora erat quasi sexta.
7 Venit mulier de Samaria haurire aquam. Dicit ei Iesus: "Da mihi bibere";
8 discipuli enim eius abierant in civitatem, ut cibos emerent.
9 Dicit ergo ei mulier illa Samaritana: "Quomodo tu, Iudaeus cum sis, bibere a me poscis, quae sum mulier Samaritana?". Non enim coutuntur Iudaei Samaritanis.
10 Respondit Iesus et dixit ei: "Si scires donum Dei, et quis est, qui dicit tibi: "Da mihi bibere", tu forsitan petisses ab eo, et dedisset tibi aquam vivam".
11 Dicit ei mulier: "Domine, neque in quo haurias habes, et puteus altus est; unde ergo habes aquam vivam?
12 Numquid tu maior es patre nostro Iacob, qui dedit nobis puteum, et ipse ex eo bibit et filii eius et pecora eius?".
13 Respondit Iesus et dixit ei: "Omnis, qui bibit ex aqua hac, sitiet iterum;
14 qui autem biberit ex aqua, quam ego dabo ei, non sitiet in aeternum; sed aqua, quam dabo ei, fiet in eo fons aquae salientis in vitam aeternam".
15 Dicit ad eum mulier: "Domine, da mihi hanc aquam, ut non sitiam neque veniam huc haurire".
16 Dicit ei: "Vade, voca virum tuum et veni huc".
17 Respondit mulier et dixit ei: "Non habeo virum". Dicit ei Iesus: "Bene dixisti: "Non habeo virum";
18 quinque enim viros habuisti, et nunc, quem habes, non est tuus vir. Hoc vere dixisti".
19 Dicit ei mulier: "Domine, video quia propheta es tu.
20 Patres nostri in monte hoc adoraverunt, et vos dicitis quia in Hierosolymis est locus, ubi adorare oportet".
21 Dicit ei Iesus: "Crede mihi, mulier, quia venit hora, quando neque in monte hoc neque in Hierosolymis adorabitis Patrem.
22 Vos adoratis, quod nescitis; nos adoramus, quod scimus, quia salus ex Iudaeis est.
23 Sed venit hora, et nunc est, quando veri adoratores adorabunt Patrem in Spiritu et veritate; nam et Pater tales quaerit, qui adorent eum.
24 Spiritus est Deus, et eos, qui adorant eum, in Spiritu et veritate oportet adorare".
25 Dicit ei mulier: "Scio quia Messias venit - qui dicitur Christus C; cum venerit ille, nobis annuntiabit omnia".
26 Dicit ei Iesus: "Ego sum, qui loquor tecum".
27 Et continuo venerunt discipuli eius et mirabantur quia cum muliere loquebatur; nemo tamen dixit: "Quid quaeris aut quid loqueris cum ea?".
28 Reliquit ergo hydriam suam mulier et abiit in civitatem et dicit illis hominibus:
29 "Venite, videte hominem, qui dixit mihi omnia, quaecumque feci; numquid ipse est Christus?".
30 Exierunt de civitate et veniebant ad eum.
31 Interea rogabant eum discipuli dicentes: "Rabbi, manduca".
32 Ille autem dixit eis: "Ego cibum habeo manducare, quem vos nescitis".
33 Dicebant ergo discipuli ad invicem: "Numquid aliquis attulit ei manducare?".
34 Dicit eis Iesus: "Meus cibus est, ut faciam voluntatem eius, qui misit me, et ut perficiam opus eius.
35 Nonne vos dicitis: "Adhuc quattuor menses sunt, et messis venit"? Ecce dico vobis: Levate oculos vestros et videte regiones, quia albae sunt ad messem! Iam
36 qui metit, mercedem accipit et congregat fructum in vitam aeternam, ut et qui seminat, simul gaudeat et qui metit.
37 In hoc enim est verbum verum: Alius est qui seminat, et alius est qui metit.
38 Ego misi vos metere, quod vos non laborastis; alii laboraverunt, et vos in laborem eorum introistis".
39 Ex civitate autem illa multi crediderunt in eum Samaritanorum propter verbum mulieris testimonium perhibentis: "Dixit mihi omnia, quaecumque feci!".
40 Cum venissent ergo ad illum Samaritani, rogaverunt eum, ut apud ipsos maneret; et mansit ibi duos dies.
41 Et multo plures crediderunt propter sermonem eius;
42 et mulieri dicebant: "Iam non propter tuam loquelam credimus; ipsi enim audivimus et scimus quia hic est vere Salvator mundi!".
43 Post duos autem dies exiit inde in Galilaeam;
44 ipse enim Iesus testimonium perhibuit, quia propheta in sua patria honorem non habet.
45 Cum ergo venisset in Galilaeam, exceperunt eum Galilaei, cum omnia vidissent, quae fecerat Hierosolymis in die festo; et ipsi enim venerant in diem festum.
46 Venit ergo iterum in Cana Galilaeae, ubi fecit aquam vinum. Et erat quidam regius, cuius filius infirmabatur Capharnaum;
47 hic, cum audisset quia Iesus advenerit a Iudaea in Galilaeam, abiit ad eum et rogabat, ut descenderet et sanaret filium eius; incipiebat enim mori.
48 Dixit ergo Iesus ad eum: "Nisi signa et prodigia videritis, non credetis".
49 Dicit ad eum regius: "Domine, descende priusquam moriatur puer meus".
50 Dicit ei Iesus: "Vade. Filius tuus vivit". Credidit homo sermoni, quem dixit ei Iesus, et ibat.
51 Iam autem eo descendente, servi eius occurrerunt ei dicentes quia puer eius vivit.
52 Interrogabat ergo horam ab eis, in qua melius habuerit. Dixerunt ergo ei: "Heri hora septima reliquit eum febris".
53 Cognovit ergo pater quia illa hora erat, in qua dixit ei Iesus: "Filius tuus vivit ", et credidit ipse et domus eius tota.
54 Hoc iterum secundum signum fecit Iesus, cum venisset a Iudaea in Galilaeam.
King James Version
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.
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.
31 ¶ In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
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.
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.
37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
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.
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.
