John 2:1-11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And the third day weddings were made in the Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there.

And Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the weddings.

And when wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, They have not wine.

And Jesus saith to her, What to me and to thee, woman? mine hour came not yet.

His mother saith to the ministers, Whatever thing he saith to you, do ye.

And there were set six stone cans, after the cleansing of the Jews, holding each two or three metretes. [Forsooth there were put six stone pots, after the cleansing of Jews, taking each two or three measures.]

And Jesus saith to them, Fill ye the pots with water. And they filled them, up to the mouth. [Jesus saith to them, Fill ye the pots with water. And they filled them unto the highest part.]

And Jesus said to them, Draw ye now, and bear ye to the master of the feast[a]. And they bare.

And when the master of the feast had tasted the water made wine, and knew not whereof it was, but the ministers knew that drew the water[b], the master of the feast calleth the spouse,

10 and saith to him, Each man setteth first good wine, and when men be filled, then that that is worse; but thou hast kept the good wine into this time. [and saith to him, Each man putteth first good wine, and when men shall be full-filled, then that that is worse; soothly thou hast kept good wine till now.]

11 Jesus did this the beginning of signs in the Cana of Galilee, and showed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

John 2:1-11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Christ turns the water into wine, and drives the buyers and sellers out of the temple.

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana, a village of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. And Jesus was invited also, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when the wine failed, Jesus’ mother said to him, They have no wine. Jesus said to her, Woman, what have I to do with you? My hour is not yet come. And his mother said to the servants, Whatever he says to you, do it.

And there were standing there six waterpots of stone, for the purification rites of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. And Jesus said to them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, Draw some out now, and bring it to the master of the feast. And they brought it.

When the master of the feast tasted the water that was turned to wine, and did not know where it was from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), he called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, All men at the beginning set out good wine, and when people have drunk, then that which is worse. But you have kept back the good wine until now.

11 This beginning of miracles Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and showed his glory, and his disciples believed on him.

John 2:1-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 Christ turneth water into Wine, 11 which was the beginning of his miracles. 12 He goeth down to Capernaum: 13 from thence he goeth up to Jerusalem, 15 and casteth the merchandise out of the Temple. 19 He foretelleth that the Temple, that is, his body shall be destroyed of the Jews. 23 Many believe in him, seeing the miracles which he did.

And [a]the [b]third day, was there a marriage in Cana a town of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.

And Jesus was called also, and his disciples unto the marriage.

[c]Now when the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said unto him, They have no wine.

Jesus said unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine [d]hour is not yet come.

His mother said unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

And there were set there, six [e]waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three [f]firkins apiece.

And Jesus said unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. Then they filled them up to the brim.

Then he said unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. So they bare it.

Now when the governor of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, (for he knew not whence it was, but the servants, which drew the water, knew) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

10 And said unto him, All men at the beginning set forth good wine, and when men have [g]well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept back the good wine until now.

11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana a town of Galilee, and showed forth his glory: and his disciples believed on him.

John 2:1-11 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: and both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 and saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
