19 The woman *said to Him, “[a]Sir, I perceive that You are (A)a prophet. 20 (B)Our fathers worshiped on (C)this mountain, and yet you Jews say that (D)in Jerusalem is the place where one must worship.” 21 Jesus *said to her, “Believe Me, woman, that [b](E)a time is coming when you will worship the Father (F)neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 (G)You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, because (H)salvation is from the Jews. 23 But [c](I)a time is coming, and [d]even now has arrived, when the true worshipers will worship the Father (J)in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be [e]His worshipers. 24 God is [f]spirit, and those who worship Him must worship (K)in spirit and truth.”
