he left Judea and departed again for Galilee.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:4

And he had to pass through Samaria.

So he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:6

Jacob’s well was there; so Jesus, wearied as he was from his journey, was sitting beside the well. It was about the sixth hour.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:7

A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:8

(For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.)

Tools specific to Jhn 4:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:9

The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)

Tools specific to Jhn 4:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:10

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:11

The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water?

Tools specific to Jhn 4:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:12

Are you greater than our father Jacob? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and his livestock.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:13

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,

Tools specific to Jhn 4:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:14

Tools specific to Jhn 4:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:15

The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:16

Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:17

The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband’;

Tools specific to Jhn 4:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:18

for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:19

The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:20

Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:21

Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:22

You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:23

But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:24

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:25

The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:26

Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:27

Just then his disciples came back. They marveled that he was talking with a woman, but no one said, “What do you seek?” or, “Why are you talking with her?”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:28

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:28

So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people,

Tools specific to Jhn 4:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:29

“Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:30

They went out of the town and were coming to him.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:31

Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:32

But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:33

So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:34

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:35

Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:36

Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:37

For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’

Tools specific to Jhn 4:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:38

I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:39

Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:40

So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:41

And many more believed because of his word.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:42

They said to the woman, “It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:43

After the two days he departed for Galilee.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:44

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:44

(For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown.)

Tools specific to Jhn 4:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:45

So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the feast. For they too had gone to the feast.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:46

So he came again to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And at Capernaum there was an official whose son was ill.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:47

When this man heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and asked him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:48

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:48

So Jesus said to him, “Unless you[fn] see signs and wonders you will not believe.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:49

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:49

The official said to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:50

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:50

Jesus said to him, “Go; your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and went on his way.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:51

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:51

As he was going down, his servants[fn] met him and told him that his son was recovering.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:52

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:52

So he asked them the hour when he began to get better, and they said to him, “Yesterday at the seventh hour[fn] the fever left him.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:53

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:53

The father knew that was the hour when Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” And he himself believed, and all his household.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:54

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:54

This was now the second sign that Jesus did when he had come from Judea to Galilee.
