João 4

1 But when Jeshu knew that the Pharishee had heard that he had made many disciples, and baptized more than Juchanon,

2 (though it was not Jeshu himself baptized, but his disciples,)

3 he left Jihuda, and came again into Galila.

4 AND he needed that in going he should pass through among the Shomroyee;

5 and he came to a city of the Shomroyee which is called Shokar, nigh to the field which Jakub gave unto Jauseph his son.

6 And the fountain of water of Jakub was there. But Jeshu was wearied with the labour of the way, and sat by the fountain; and it was six hours.

7 There came a woman from Shomreen to draw waters, and Jeshu said to her, Give me waters to drink.

8 Now his disciples had gone into the city to buy for them meat.

9 The woman, the Shomroytha, saith to him, How (canst) thou who art a Jihudoya ask drink of me who am a woman, a Shomroytha? For the Jihudoyee have no accommodation with the Shomroyee.

10 Jeshu answered and said to her, If thou hadst known the gift of Aloha, and who He is who hath said to thee, Give me to drink, thou wouldst have asked of him, and he had given thee living waters.

11 That woman saith to him, My Lord, thou hast no vessel, and the well is deep; whence hast thou living waters?

12 Art thou greater than our father Jakub, he who gave us this well, and himself drank of it, and his children, and his flocks?

13 Jeshu answered and said to her, Every one who shall drink of these waters again will thirst;

14 but every one who shall drink of the waters that I will give him shall never thirst; but those waters that I shall give him shall be in him a fountain of waters, that shall spring forth to the life of eternity.

15 That woman saith to him, My Lord, give me of those waters, that I thirst not again, nor come to draw from hence.

16 Jeshu saith to her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

17 She saith to him, I have no husband. Jeshu saith to her, Well hast thou said, I have no husband;

18 for five husbands hast thou had, and this whom thou now hast is not thy husband; this hast thou said truly.

19 That woman saith to him, My Lord, I perceive that thou art a prophet.

20 Our fathers in this mountain worshipped, and you say that in Urishlem is the place where it behoves to worship.

21 Jeshu saith to her, Woman, believe me that the hour cometh when neither in this mountain, nor at Urishlem, you shall worship the Father:

22 you worship something you know not; but we worship whom we know; for salvation is from the Jihudoyee.

23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father also requireth worshippers such as these.

24 For Aloha is a Spirit; and they who worship him, in spirit and in truth must worship.

25 That woman saith to him, I know that the Meshicha cometh; and when he hath come, he will teach us all things.

26 Jeshu saith to her, I am (he), I who speak with thee.

27 And as he spoke, his disciples came, and they wondered that with the woman he spoke; but no man said, What inquirest thou? or, Why speakest thou with her?

28 The woman left her water-pot, and went into the city, and saith,

29 Come, see a man who hath told me every thing that I have done: is not this the Meshicha?

30 And the men went out of the city, and came with her.

31 Between these things his disciples entreated of him, saying to him, Raban, eat.

32 But he said to them, I have food to eat of which you know not.

33 The disciples say among themselves, Has any man brought him somewhat to eat?

34 Jeshu saith to them, My meat is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to accomplish his work.

35 Say you not, that after four moons cometh harvest? Behold, I tell you, Lift up your eyes, and see the lands which have become white for the harvest already.

36 And he who reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal; and the sower and the reaper shall rejoice together.

37 For in this is the proverb true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

38 I sent you to reap that (for) which you did not toil; for others toiled, and you have entered upon their labour.

39 Now of that city many Shomroyee believed in him, because of the saying of that woman, who testified, He told me every thing that I have done.

40 And when those Shomroyee came to him, they besought him to be with them. And he was with them two days,

41 and many believed through his word.

42 And they said to the woman, Now not through thy word believe we in him; for we have heard and known that this is truly the Meshicha, the Saviour of the world.

43 AND after two days Jeshu went forth from thence, and came into Galila;

44 for he himself testified, that a prophet in his own city is not honoured.

45 But when he came to Galila, the Galiloyee received him, because they had seen all the signs which he had done in Urishlem at the feast; for they also went to the feast.

46 So Jeshu came again into Kotna of Galila, where he had made the waters wine. And there was at Kapher-nachum the servant of a certain king, whose son was ill.

47 This (man) heard that Jeshu had come from Jihuda into Galila; and he came to him, and besought him that he would come down and heal his son, for he was near to die.

48 Jeshu saith to him, If signs and wonders you do not SEE, you will not believe.

49 The servant of the king saith to him, My lord, come down ere my child die!

50 Jeshu saith to him, Go, thy son liveth. And the man believed in the word which Jeshu had spoken to him, and went.

51 But as he was going down, his servants met him, and gave him good news, saying to him, Thy son liveth.

52 And he asked at what time he was healed. They say to him, Yesterday, at seven hours, the fever left him.

53 And his father knew that in that hour it was in which Jeshu said to him, Thy son liveth; and he believed, and all his house.

54 This is again the second sign (which) Jeshu did when he had come from Jihuda into Galila.
