4:1 hat believeth on the Son hath everlasting Life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see Life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

The Samaritan woman

4:1 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

4:2 (though Jesus himself baptized not, but His disciples,)

4:3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.

4:4 And He must needs go through Samaria.

4:5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

4:7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, "Give Me to drink."

4:8 (For His disciples were gone away unto the city to buy food.)

4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto Him, "How is it that Thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?" for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, "If thou knewest the gift of God, and Who it is that saith to thee, 'Give Me to drink;' thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee living water."

4:11 The woman saith unto Him, "My Lord, Thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast Thou that living water?

4:12 Art Thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?"

4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, "Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

4:14 but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting Life."

4:15 The woman saith unto Him, "My Lord, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw."

4:16 Jesus saith unto her, "Go, call thy husband, and come hither."

4:17 The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus said unto her, "Thou hast well said, 'I have no husband:

4:18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.'"

4:19 The woman saith unto Him, "My Lord, I perceive that Thou art a prophet.

4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship."

4:21 Jesus saith unto her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, venerate the Father.

4:22 Ye venerate ye know not what: we know what we venerate: for salvation is of the Jews.

4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true venerators shall venerate the Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father seeketh such to venerate Him.

4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that venerate Him must venerate Him in Spirit and in Truth."

4:25 The woman saith unto Him, "I know that Messias cometh, Which is called Christ: when He is come, He will tell us all things."

4:26 Jesus saith unto her, "I that speak unto thee, I AM."

The harvest is ready

4:27 And upon this came His disciples, and marvelled that He talked with the woman: yet no man said, "What seekest Thou?" or, "Why talkest Thou with her?"

4:28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,

4:29 "Come, see a Man, Which told me all things that ever I did: is not This the Christ?"

4:30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto Him.

4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed Him, saying, "Master, eat."

4:32 But He said unto them, "I have food to eat that ye know not of."

4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, "Hath any man brought Him ought to eat?"

4:34 Jesus saith unto them, "My food is to do the will of Him that sent me, and to finish His work.

4:35 Say not ye, 'There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest?' behold, I say unto you, 'Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.'

4:36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto Life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

4:37 And herein is that saying true, 'One soweth, and another reapeth.'

4:38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours."

4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on Him for the saying of the woman, which testified, "He told me all that ever I did."

4:40 So when the Samaritans were come unto Him, they besought Him that He would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.

4:41 And many more believed because of His own word;

4:42 And said unto the woman, "Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard Him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world."

4:43 Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.

4:44 For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.

4:45 Then when He was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received Him, having seen all the things that He did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.

A nobleman's son is healed

4:46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where He made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.

4:47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto Him, and besought Him that He would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.

4:48 Then said Jesus unto him, "Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe."

4:49 The nobleman saith unto Him, "My Lord, come down ere my child die."

4:50 Jesus saith unto him, "Go thy way; thy son liveth." And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.

4:51 And as he was now going down, his slaves met him, and told him, saying, "Thy son liveth."

4:52 Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."

4:53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, "Thy son liveth:" and himself believed, and his whole house.
