15 The woman said to him, “Sir, (A)give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.”

16 Jesus said to her, “Go, (B)call your husband, and come here.” 17 The woman answered him, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You are right in saying, ‘I have no husband’; 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.” 19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that (C)you are (D)a prophet. 20 (E)Our fathers worshiped on (F)this mountain, but you say that (G)in Jerusalem is (H)the place where people ought to worship.” 21 Jesus said to her, (I)“Woman, believe me, (J)the hour is coming when (K)neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 (L)You worship what you do not know; (M)we worship what we know, for (N)salvation is (O)from the Jews. 23 But (P)the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father (Q)in spirit and (R)truth, for the Father (S)is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that (T)Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, (U)he will tell us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, (V)“I who speak to you am he.”
