João 2

1 AND on the third day there was a feast in Kotna, a city of Galila; and the mother of Jeshu was there:

2 and Jeshu and his disciples were called to the feast.

3 And the wine failed, and his mother saith to him, to Jeshu, They have no wine.

4 Jeshu saith to her, What (is it) to me and to thee, woman? Not yet hath come mine hour.

5 His mother saith to the servitors, Whatever he telleth you, do.

6 Now there were six waterpots of stone set there, unto the purification of the Jihudoyee, which contained each two quarantals or three.

7 Jeshu saith to them, Fill these water-pots with waters; and they filled them to the top.

8 He saith to them, Draw now, and carry to the chief of the guests. And they carried.

9 And when that chief of the guests had tasted those waters which were made wine, and knew not whence it was, (but the servitors knew, who had filled them with waters,) the chief of the guests called the bridegroom,

10 and said to him, Every man at first the good wine produceth, and when they are satisfied, then that which is inferior; but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

11 This is the first sign that Jeshu wrought in Kotna of Galila, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

12 AFTER this he went to Kapher-nachum, he and his mother and his brethren and his disciples. And they were there a few days.

13 And the petscha of the Jihudoyee was nigh, and Jeshu went up to Urishlem.

14 And he found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money-changers sitting.

15 And he made him a scourge of cord, and drove them all from the temple, and the sheep and the oxen and the money-changers; and he shed their money, and their tables he overturned.

16 And to those who sold doves he said, Take these hence; make not the house of my Father a house of merchandise.

17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thy house hath devoured me.

18 The Jihudoyee answered and said to him, What sign showest thou to us, as these things thou doest?

19 Jeshu answered, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it.

20 The Jihudoyee say to him, Forty-and six years was this temple being built, and wilt thou in three days raise it?

21 But he spake of the temple of his body.

22 But when he was risen from the house of the dead, his disciples remembered that this he had said; and they believed the scriptures, and the word which Jeshu had spoken.

23 WHILE Jeshu was in Jerusalem at the petscha, at the feast, Many believed in him who saw the signs which he wrought.

24 But he, Jeshu, did not confide himself to them, because he knew every man,

25 and needed not that any should testify to him concerning any man, because he knew what is in man.
