1. Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John
5. So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6. Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
9. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
"If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
11. The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?
12. Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?"
14. but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life."
17. The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband,'
18. for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly."
20. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship."
"Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
23. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
25. The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."
27. And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He talked with a woman; yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why are You talking with her?"
35. Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
36. And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
38. I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."
39. And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified, "He told me all that I ever did."
40. So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
42. Then they said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
45. So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had gone to the feast.
46. So Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He had made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47. When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.
48. Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe."
50. Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your son lives." So the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
52. Then he inquired of them the hour when he got better. And they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."
53. So the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives." And he himself believed, and his whole household.
