1 When Jesus knew that the Pharisees heard He was making and baptizing more disciples than John
5 so He came to a town of Samaria called Sychar near the property that Jacob had given his son Joseph.
6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, worn out from His journey, sat down at the well. It was about six in the evening.
9 "How is it that You, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" she asked Him. For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered, "If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would ask Him, and He would give you living water."
11 "Sir," said the woman, "You don't even have a bucket, and the well is deep. So where do you get this 'living water'?
12 You aren't greater than our father Jacob, are you? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and livestock."
14 But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again-ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life."
15 "Sir," the woman said to Him, "give me this water so I won't get thirsty and come here to draw water."
17 "I don't have a husband," she answered. "You have correctly said, 'I don't have a husband,' " Jesus said.
18 "For you've had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true."
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, yet you [Jews] say that the place to worship is in Jerusalem."
21 Jesus told her, "Believe Me, woman, an hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know. We worship what we do know, because salvation is from the Jews.
23 But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship Him.
25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will explain everything to us."
27 Just then His disciples arrived, and they were amazed that He was talking with a woman. Yet no one said, "What do You want?" or "Why are You talking with her?"
35 "Don't you say, 'There are still four more months, then comes the harvest'? Listen [to what] I'm telling you: Open your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ready for harvest.
36 The reaper is already receiving pay and gathering fruit for eternal life, so the sower and reaper can rejoice together.
38 I sent you to reap what you didn't labor for; others have labored, and you have benefited from their labor."
39 Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of what the woman said when she testified, "He told me everything I ever did."
40 Therefore, when the Samaritans came to Him, they asked Him to stay with them, and He stayed there two days.
42 And they told the woman, "We no longer believe because of what you said, for we have heard for ourselves and know that this really is the Savior of the world."
45 When they entered Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him because they had seen everything He did in Jerusalem during the festival. For they also had gone to the festival.
46 Then He went again to Cana of Galilee, where He had turned the water into wine. There was a certain royal official whose son was ill at Capernaum.
47 When this man heard that Jesus had come from Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and pleaded with Him to come down and heal his son, for he was about to die.
50 "Go," Jesus told him, "your son will live." The man believed what Jesus said to him and departed.
52 He asked them at what time he got better. "Yesterday at seven in the morning the fever left him," they answered.
53 The father realized this was the very hour at which Jesus had told him, "Your son will live." Then he himself believed, along with his whole household.
