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!

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’?

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.”

John 4 New English Translation (NET Bible)
Departure From Judea
4 Now when Jesus knew that the Pharisees had heard that he was winning and baptizing more disciples than John 2 (although Jesus himself was not baptizing, but his disciples were), 3 he left Judea and set out once more for Galilee.
Conversation With a Samaritan Woman
4 But he had to pass through Samaria. 5 Now he came to a Samaritan town called Sychar, near the plot of land that Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, so Jesus, since he was tired from the journey, sat right down beside the well. It was about noon.
7 A Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me some water to drink.” 8 (For his disciples had gone off into the town to buy supplies.) 9 So the Samaritan woman said to him, “How can you—a Jew—ask me, a Samaritan woman, for water to drink?” (For Jews use nothing in common with Samaritans.)
10 Jesus answered her, “If you had known the gift of God and who it is who said to you, ‘Give me some water to drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” 11 “Sir,” the woman said to him, “you have no bucket and the well is deep; where then do you get this living water? 12 Surely you’re not greater than our ancestor Jacob, are you? For he gave us this well and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his livestock.”
13 Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again. 14 But whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.” 15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.” 16 He said to her, “Go call your husband and come back here.” 17 The woman replied, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “Right you are when you said, ‘I have no husband,’ 18 for you have had five husbands, and the man you are living with now is not your husband. This you said truthfully!”
19 The woman said to him, “Sir, I see that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you people say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You people worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because salvation is from the Jews. 23 But a time is coming—and now is here—when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such people to be his worshipers. 24 God is spirit, and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 25 The woman said to him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (the one called Christ); “whenever he comes, he will tell us everything.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I, the one speaking to you, am he.”
The Disciples Return
27 Now at that very moment his disciples came back. They were shocked because he was speaking with a woman. However, no one said, “What do you want?” or “Why are you speaking with her?” 28 Then the woman left her water jar, went off into the town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Surely he can’t be the Messiah, can he?” 30 So they left the town and began coming to him.
Workers for the Harvest
31 Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, “Rabbi, eat something.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” 33 So the disciples began to say to one another, “No one brought him anything to eat, did they?” 34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me and to complete his work. 35 Don’t you say, ‘There are four more months and then comes the harvest?’ I tell you, look up and see that the fields are already white for harvest! 36 The one who reaps receives pay and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that the one who sows and the one who reaps can rejoice together. 37 For in this instance the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
The Samaritans Respond
39 Now many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the report of the woman who testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they began asking him to stay with them. He stayed there two days, 41 and because of his word many more believed. 42 They said to the woman, “No longer do we believe because of your words, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this one really is the Savior of the world.”
Onward to Galilee
43 After the two days he departed from there to Galilee. 44 (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) 45 So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him because they had seen all the things he had done in Jerusalem at the feast (for they themselves had gone to the feast).
Healing the Royal Official’s Son
46 Now he came again to Cana in Galilee where he had made the water wine. In Capernaum there was a certain royal official whose son was sick. 47 When he heard that Jesus had come back from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and begged him to come down and heal his son, who was about to die. 48 So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders you will never believe!” 49 “Sir,” the official said to him, “come down before my child dies.” 50 Jesus told him, “Go home; your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and set off for home.
51 While he was on his way down, his slaves met him and told him that his son was going to live. 52 So he asked them the time when his condition began to improve, and they told him, “Yesterday at one o’clock in the afternoon the fever left him.” 53 Then the father realized that it was the very time Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live,” and he himself believed along with his entire household. 54 Jesus did this as his second miraculous sign when he returned from Judea to Galilee.
