João 2

1 ON the third day a wedding took place in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.

2 Jesus also was invited, with his disciples, to the wedding.

3 When the wine ran short, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no wine."

4 Jesus said to her, "What have you to do with my work, woman? My hour has not yet come."

5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever he tells you, do it."

6 There were standing there six stone water jars in accordance with the Jewish custom of purification, holding about twenty or thirty gallons apiece.

7 Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." They filled them to the brim.

8 Then he said to them, "Dip out now and carry it to the Master of the feast." They carried it,

9 and when the Master of the feast tasted the water that had become wine, not knowing where it came from \'97 though the servants who had dipped out the water knew \'97 he called to the bridegroom

10 and said to him, "Every man sets on first the fine wine, and when they have drunk freely he sets on the poorer. You have kept the fine wine till now."

11 This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana in Galilee and displayed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

12 After this Jesus went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and his brothers and his disciples, and there they stayed a few days.

13 The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

14 Finding in the Temple courts the sellers of cattle and sheep and doves and the money-changers sitting there,

15 he made a whip of cords and drove them all from the courts \'97 all the sheep and the cattle, \'97 and he poured out the small coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.

16 He said to those who were selling doves, "Take these things out. Do not make my Father's house a house of trade."

17 His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for thy house will devour me."

18 The Jews said to him, "What sign do you show us, since you act in this way?"

19 Jesus answered them, "Demolish this Temple and in three days I will raise it again."

20 The Jews said, "It took forty-six years to build this Temple, and will you raise it in three days?"

21 But he was speaking of the temple of his body.

22 So when he arose from the dead his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

23 When he was in Jerusalem at the Feast of the Passover, many believed in his name, seeing his signs that he did,

24 but Jesus did not trust himself to them because he knew all men

25 and had no need for any one to inform him about man, for he knew what was in man.
