1 Three days after, there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee; where the mother of Jesus was present. 2 as likewise Jesus and his disciples, who were all invited to the feast. 3 now when the wine was out, the mother of Jesus said to him, they have no wine.
4 Jesus answer'd her, woman, leave that affair to me, is not that my concern?
5 upon which his mother bid the servants do whatever he should order.
6 now there were six cisterns of stone plac'd there for the use of the Jews in their purifications, containing two or three firkins a-piece.
7 these Jesus order'd the waiters to fill with water. so they filled them up to the brim. 8 now fill out, said he, and carry it to the steward of the feast, which accordingly they did.
9 as soon as the steward had tasted the water that was made wine, (for he did not know whence it came, but the servants who drew the water knew it,) he called the bridegroom, 10 and said to him, 'tis usual to present the best wine first, and afterwards the worse, when the guests have drank pretty freely: but you have reserved the best wine to the last.
11 thus was the first miracle of Jesus wrought at Cana in Galilee, by which he displayed his power; and his disciples believed on him.
12 After this he went down to Capernaum, in company with his mother, his brethren, and his disciples: but they stay'd there only a few days.
13 for the Jews passover being nigh, Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 where he found in the temple those that sold oxen, sheep, and doves, besides the changers of money, who were sitting there. 15 upon which he made a whip of small cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with their sheep, and oxen; and threw about the changers money, and over-set the tables; and said to the dove-sellers, 16 away with these things; make not my father's house a market-house.
17 which put his disciples in mind of that passage, "my zeal for thine house does prey upon me."
18 whereupon the Jews said, what miracle can you show to justify your behaviour?
19 Jesus answered them, saying, destroy this temple, and within three days I will raise it up.
20 to this said the Jews, forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 but by the temple he meant his body. 22 and when he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembred that expression of his: and they believed the scripture, and what Jesus had said.
23 Now whilst he was in Jerusalem at the feast of the passover, many believed in him when they saw the miracles which he did. 24 but Jesus did not trust his person with them, because he knew them all. 25 and he did not want any information concerning man: for he knew of himself the secret of their hearts.
