4 Now oun when hōs Jesus Iēsous learned ginōskō · ho that hoti the ho Pharisees Pharisaios had heard akouō that hoti Jesus Iēsous was making poieō and kai baptizing baptizō more polys disciples mathētēs than ē John Iōannēs 2 — although kaitoige Jesus Iēsous himself autos was not ou baptizing baptizō, but alla · ho his autos disciples mathētēs were— 3 he left aphiēmi · ho Judea Ioudaia and kai departed aperchomai again palin for eis · ho Galilee Galilaia. 4 Now de it was necessary dei that he autos pass dierchomai through dia · ho Samaria Samareia. 5 So oun he came erchomai to eis a town polis in ho Samaria Samareia called legō Sychar Sychar, near plēsion the ho plot chōrion of ground that hos Jacob Iakōb had given didōmi to ho his autos son hyios Joseph Iōsēph. · ho 6 Jacob’ s Iakōb well pēgē was eimi · de there ekei. · ho · ho So oun Jesus Iēsous, weary kopiaō from ek his ho journey hodoiporia, sat kathezomai down by epi the ho well pēgē. It was eimi about hōs the sixth hektos hour hōra.
7 There came erchomai a woman gynē of ek · ho Samaria Samareia to draw antleō water hydōr. Jesus Iēsous said legō to her autos, · ho “ Give didōmi me egō a drink pinō.” 8 · ho ( For gar his autos disciples mathētēs had gone aperchomai off to eis the ho town polis to hina buy agorazō food trophē.) 9 The ho Samaritan Samaritis woman gynē said legō to him autos, · ho “ How pōs is it that you sy, being eimi a Jew Ioudaios, are asking for aiteō a drink pinō from para me egō, a woman gynē who is eimi from Samaria Samaritis?” ( For gar Jews Ioudaios use nothing ou in common synchraomai with Samaritans Samaritēs.) 10 Jesus Iēsous answered apokrinomai · kai her autos, saying legō, “ If ei you had known oida the ho gift dōrea of ho God theos and kai who tis it was eimi that ho said legō to you sy, ‘ Give didōmi me egō a drink pinō,’ you sy would an have asked aiteō him autos, and kai he would an have given didōmi you sy living zaō water hydōr.” 11 The ho woman gynē said legō to him autos, “ Sir kyrios, you have echō no oute bucket antlēma and kai the ho well phrear is eimi deep bathus. How pothen then oun are you going echō to draw the ho living zaō water hydōr? · ho 12 Surely you sy are eimi not mē greater megas than ho our hēmeis father patēr Jacob Iakōb, are you , who hos gave didōmi us hēmeis the ho well phrear and kai drank pinō from ek it autos himself autos, as kai did · ho his autos sons hyios and kai · ho his autos flocks thremma?” 13 Jesus Iēsous replied apokrinomai, and kai said legō to her autos, “ Everyone pas who ho drinks pinō of ek · ho this houtos water hydōr will be thirsty dipsaō again palin, 14 but de whoever hos drinks pinō of ek the ho water hydōr that hos I egō will give didōmi him autos will never ou mē be thirsty dipsaō for eis all ho time aiōn, but alla the ho water hydōr that hos I will give didōmi him autos will become ginomai in en him autos a fountain pēgē of water hydōr gushing hallomai up to eis eternal aiōnios life zōē.” 15 The ho woman gynē said legō to pros him autos, “ Sir kyrios, give didōmi me egō this houtos · ho water hydōr, so hina that I will not mē be thirsty dipsaō or mēde have to keep coming dierchomai here enthade to draw antleō water.”
16 Jesus said legō to her autos, “ Go hypagō, call phōneō · ho your sy husband anēr, and kai come erchomai back here enthade.” 17 The ho woman gynē replied apokrinomai and kai said legō to him autos, “ I do not ou have echō a husband anēr.” Jesus Iēsous said legō to her autos, · ho “ You are right kalōs in saying legō, ‘ I do echō not ou have echō a husband anēr,’ 18 for gar you have had echō five pente husbands anēr, and kai the man hos you now nyn have echō is eimi not ou your sy husband anēr. You have spoken legō the houtos truth alēthēs.” 19 The ho woman gynē said legō to him autos, “ Sir kyrios, I can see theōreō that hoti you sy are eimi a prophet prophētēs. 20 · ho Our hēmeis fathers patēr worshiped proskyneō on en · ho this houtos mountain oros, but kai you hymeis Jews say legō that hoti the ho place topos where hopou people should dei worship proskyneō is eimi in en Jerusalem Hierosolyma.” 21 Jesus Iēsous said legō to her autos, · ho “ Believe pisteuō me egō, woman gynē, the hour hōra is coming erchomai when hote you will worship proskyneō the ho Father patēr neither oute on en · ho this houtos mountain oros nor oute in en Jerusalem Hierosolyma. 22 You hymeis Samaritans worship proskyneō what hos you do not ou know oida; we hēmeis worship proskyneō what hos we know oida, because hoti · ho salvation sōtēria is eimi from ek the ho Jews Ioudaios. 23 But alla the hour hōra is coming erchomai, and kai is eimi here nyn already , when hote · ho true alēthinos worshipers proskynētēs will worship proskyneō the ho Father patēr in en spirit pneuma and kai in truth alētheia; for gar indeed kai the ho Father patēr is seeking zēteō just toioutos such people · ho to be his autos worshipers proskyneō. 24 God theos is spirit pneuma, · ho and kai those ho who worship proskyneō him autos must dei worship proskyneō in en spirit pneuma and kai in truth alētheia.” 25 The ho woman gynē said legō to him autos, “ I know oida that hoti Messiah Messias is coming erchomai ( the ho one called legō Christ Christos). When hotan he comes erchomai, he ekeinos will explain anangellō everything hapas to us hēmeis.” 26 Jesus Iēsous said legō to her autos, · ho “ I egō, the ho one speaking laleō to you sy, am eimi he.”
27 · kai Just epi then houtos his autos disciples mathētēs came erchomai back. · ho · kai They were astonished thaumazō that hoti he was talking laleō with meta a woman gynē; however mentoi, no oudeis one said legō to her, “ What tis do you want zēteō?” or ē to him, “ Why tis are you talking laleō with meta her autos?” 28 Then oun the ho woman gynē left aphiēmi · ho her autos water hydria jar and kai went aperchomai off to eis the ho town polis. · kai She told legō the ho people anthrōpos there, 29 “ Come deute and see a man anthrōpos who hos told legō me egō everything pas I have ever hosos done poieō! Could mēti this houtos man be eimi the ho Messiah Christos?” 30 So they went exerchomai out of ek the ho town polis and kai made their way erchomai to pros Jesus autos.
31 In en the ho meantime metaxy the ho disciples mathētēs kept urging erōtaō Jesus autos, saying legō, “ Rabbi rhabbi, take esthiō something to eat .” 32 But de he ho said legō to them autos, “ I egō have echō food brōsis to eat esthiō of which hos you hymeis know oida nothing ou.” 33 Then oun the ho disciples mathētēs began to say legō to pros one allēlōn another , “ No mē one tis has brought pherō him autos something to eat esthiō, have they?” 34 Jesus Iēsous said legō to them autos, · ho “ My emos food brōma is eimi to hina do poieō the ho will thelēma of ho him who sent pempō me egō and kai to accomplish teleioō the ho work ergon he autos gave me to do. 35 Do you hymeis not ou say legō, ‘ There are eimi still eti four tetramēnos months and kai then comes erchomai the ho harvest therismos’? Look idou, I tell legō you hymeis, lift epairō up · ho your hymeis eyes ophthalmos and kai look theaomai at the ho fields chōra; they are eimi white leukos, ready for pros harvest therismos. 36 The ho reaper therizō is lambanō already receiving lambanō wages misthos and kai gathering synagō a crop karpos for eis eternal aiōnios life zōē, so hina that the ho sower speirō and kai the ho reaper therizō may rejoice chairō together homou. 37 For gar in en this houtos the ho saying logos is eimi true alēthinos, ‘ One allos · ho sows speirō and kai another allos · ho reaps therizō.’ 38 I egō sent apostellō you hymeis to reap therizō a crop for which hos you hymeis did not ou labor kopiaō. Others allos have done kopiaō the hard work , and kai you hymeis have reaped the benefits eiserchomai of eis · ho their autos labor kopos.”
39 Many polys of the ho Samaritans Samaritēs from ek · de · ho that ekeinos town polis believed pisteuō in eis him autos because dia of what ho the ho woman gynē had said logos when she testified martyreō, “ He told legō me egō everything pas that hos I ever did poieō.” 40 When hōs therefore oun the ho Samaritans Samaritēs came erchomai to pros him autos, they urged erōtaō him autos to stay menō with para them autos. · kai He stayed menō there ekei for two dyo days hēmera. 41 and kai many polys more polys believed pisteuō because dia of what ho they heard logos from him autos. 42 They said legō to the ho woman gynē, “ No longer ouketi is it because dia of what ho you sos said lalia that we believe pisteuō, for gar we have heard akouō him for ourselves autos, and kai we know oida that hoti this houtos man truly alēthōs is eimi the ho Savior sōtēr of the ho world kosmos.”
43 Two dyo days hēmera later meta · de · ho Jesus left exerchomai from there ekeithen and went to eis · ho Galilee Galilaia 44 ( for gar Jesus Iēsous himself autos had testified martyreō that hoti a prophet prophētēs has echō no ou honor timē in en · ho his own idios country patris). 45 When hote he arrived erchomai in eis · ho Galilee Galilaia, the ho Galileans Galilaios welcomed dechomai him autos, having seen horaō all pas that hosos he had done poieō in en Jerusalem Hierosolyma during en the ho feast heortē ( for gar they autos too kai had gone erchomai to eis the ho feast heortē).

John 4 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman
4 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John— 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. 3 So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.
4 Now he had to go through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])
10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”
16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”
17 “I have no husband,” she replied.
Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”
19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time 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, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”
26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”
The Disciples Rejoin Jesus
27 Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?” or “Why are you talking with her?”
28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him.
31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.”
32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?”
34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. 35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. 36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37 Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”
Many Samaritans Believe
39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41 And because of his words many more became believers.
42 They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”
Jesus Heals an Official’s Son
43 After the two days he left for Galilee. 44 (Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) 45 When he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him. They had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, for they also had been there.
46 Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine. And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death.
48 “Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”
49 The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”
50 “Go,” Jesus replied, “your son will live.”
The man took Jesus at his word and departed. 51 While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. 52 When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”
53 Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” So he and his whole household believed.
54 This was the second sign Jesus performed after coming from Judea to Galilee.
