Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:1 - Now when Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:2 - (although Jesus himself did not baptize, but only his disciples),

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:3 - he left Judea and departed again for Galilee.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:4 - And he had to pass through Samaria.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:5 - So he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field that Jacob had given to his son Joseph.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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 BoxJhn 4:7 - A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:8 - (For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.)

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.)

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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?

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:13 - Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:14 - but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.[fn] The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:16 - Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:17 - The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband’;

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:18 - for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:19 - The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:20 - Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you say that in Jerusalem is the place where people ought to worship.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:22 - You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:24 - God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:26 - Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am he.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:28 - So the woman left her water jar and went away into town and said to the people,

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:29 - “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:30 - They went out of the town and were coming to him.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:31 - Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:32 - But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:33 - So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:34 - Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:36 - Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:37 - For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:38 - I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:39 - Many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me all that I ever did.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:40 - So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:41 - And many more believed because of his word.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:43 - After the two days he departed for Galilee.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:44 - (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own hometown.)

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:48 - So Jesus said to him, “Unless you[fn] see signs and wonders you will not believe.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:49 - The official said to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:51 - As he was going down, his servants[fn] met him and told him that his son was recovering.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.”

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 4:54 - This was now the second sign that Jesus did when he had come from Judea to Galilee.
