4:1 When therefore Jesus knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John.
2 though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples baptized.
3 he left Judea and went away again into Galilee.
4 But he must needs go through Samaria.
5 He comes therefore to a city of Samaria called Sychar, near the place which Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 And Jacob’s well was there. Jesus then, having been wearied with the journey, sat thus on the well: it was about the sixth hour.
7 There comes a woman from Samaria to draw water. Jesus says to her: Give me to drink.
8 For his disciples had gone away into the city, to buy food,
9 The woman, who was a Samaritan, says to him: How dost thou, being a Jew, ask drink of me, who am a woman of Samaria?
10 Jesus answered and said to her: If thou hadst known the gift of God, and who he is that says to thee: Give me to drink, thou wouldst have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman says to him: Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: whence hast thou the living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself and his sons and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said to her: Everyone that drinks of this water shall thirst again;
14 but whoever shall drink of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a fountain of water springing up to life eternal.
15 The woman says to him: Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 He says to her: Go, call thy husband and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said: I have no husband, Jesus says to her: Well hast thou said: I have no husband;
18 for thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband. This thou hast spoken truly.
19 The woman says to him: Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where we ought to worship.
21 Jesus says to her: Believe me, woman, that the hour comes when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall you worship the Father.
22 You worship you know not what; we worship what we know, for salvation is of the Jews;
23 but the hour comes and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeks such to worship him.
24 God is spirit; and they that worship must worship in spirit and truth.
25 The woman says to him: I know that Messiah comes, who is called Christ: when he has come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus says to her: I that speak to thee am he.
27 And on this came his disciples, and wondered that he talked with the woman: no one, however, said: What seekest thou or why talkest thou with her?
28 The woman therefore left her water-pot and went away into the city, and said to the men:
29 Come, see a man that has told me all things that I have done; is this the Christ?
30 They went forth from the city and came to him.
31 In the meantime his disciples besought him, saying: Rabbi, eat.
32 But he said to them: I have food to eat that you know not of.
33 Then said the disciples one to another: Has any one brought him food?
34 Jesus says to them: My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and finish his work.
35 Say you not that there are yet four months, and harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and behold the fields, that they are white for the harvest.
36 Already he that reaps receives reward and gathers fruit for eternal life, that he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together.
37 For in this is the saying true, that there is one that sows and another that reaps.
38 I have sent you to reap that on which you have not labored: others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him because of the word of the woman who testified that he told me all things that I had done.
40 When therefore the Samaritans came to him, they besought him to abide with them; and he abode; there two days.
41 And many more believed because of his word,
42 and said to the woman: We no longer believe because of thy saying; for we ourselves have heard, and know that this is in truth the Saviour of the world.
43 But after the two days he went forth thence into Galilee.
44 For Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.
45 When therefore he came into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had come to the feast.
46 He came then again into Cana of Galilee, where he had made the water wine. And there was in Capernaum a nobleman, whose son was sick;
47 he, hearing that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, came to him, and besought him that he would come down and restore his son to health; for he was about to die.
48 Jesus therefore said to him: Unless you see signs and wonders, you will not believe.
49 The nobleman said to him: Sir, come down before my child die.
50 Jesus said to him: Go, thy son lives. The man believed the word that Jesus had spoken to him, and went.
51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him and told him: Thy son lives.
52 He then inquired of them the hour in which he began to mend: they then said to him: Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
53 The father therefore knew that it was in that hour in which Jesus had said to him: Thy son lives; and he himself believed and all his house.
54 This again is the second sign that Jesus did on coming out of Judea into Galilee.
