John 2:1-11 - The Wedding At Cana: Water Turned Into Wine

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.
