“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:13

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,

“Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:20

Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:21

“Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:22

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

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:25

Tools specific to Jhn 4:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:28

Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the 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 everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:30

Tools specific to Jhn 4:31

Tools specific to Jhn 4:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:32

Tools specific to Jhn 4:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:36

Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:37

Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:38

I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:39

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

Tools specific to Jhn 4:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:40

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

Tools specific to Jhn 4:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:41

And because of his words many more became believers.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:43

After the two days he left for Galilee.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:44

Tools specific to Jhn 4:45

When he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him. They had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, for they also had been there.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:46

Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:47

When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:48

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:48

“Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:49

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:49

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

Tools specific to Jhn 4:50

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:51

While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living.

Tools specific to Jhn 4:52

When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”

Tools specific to Jhn 4:53

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 4:53
