4:2 (although Jesus himself didn`t baptize, but his disciples),
4:3 he left Judea, and departed again into Galilee.
4:4 He needed to pass through Samaria.
4:5 So he came to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son, Joseph.
4:6 Jacob`s well was there. Jesus therefore, being tired from his journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
4:7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give me a drink."
4:9 The Samaritan woman therefore said to him, "How is it that you, being a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)
4:12 Are you greater than our father, Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, as did his sons, and his cattle?"
4:13 Jesus answered her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again,
4:15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water, so that I don`t get thirsty, neither come all the way here to draw."
4:16 Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
4:17 The woman answered, "I have no husband." Jesus said to her, "You said well, `I have no husband,`
4:18 for you have had five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband. This you have said truly."
4:19 The woman said to him, "Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet.
4:22 You worship that which you don`t know. We worship that which we know; for salvation is from the Jews.
4:23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.
4:24 God is a Spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."
4:25 The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah comes," (he who is called Christ). "When he has come, he will declare to us all things."
4:26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am he."
4:27 At this, his disciples came. They marveled that he was speaking with a woman; yet no one said, "What are you looking for?" or, "Why do you speak with her?"
4:29 Come, see a man who told me everything that I did. Can this be the Christ?"
4:30 They went out of the city, and were coming to him.
4:31 In the meanwhile, the disciples urged him, saying, "Rabbi, eat."
4:32 But he said to them, "I have food to eat that you don`t know about."
4:33 The disciples therefore said one to another, "Has anyone brought him something to eat?"
4:37 For in this the saying is true, `One sows, and another reaps.`
4:38 I sent you to reap that for which you haven`t labored. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor."
4:39 From that city many of the Samaritans believed in him because of the word of the woman, who testified, `He told me everything that I did."
4:40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they begged him to stay with them. He stayed there two days.
4:41 Many more believed because of his word.
4:42 They said to the woman, "Now we believe, not because of your speaking; for we have heard for ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world."
4:43 After the two days he went forth from there and went into Galilee.
4:44 For Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.
4:45 So when he came into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast, for they also went to the feast.
4:47 When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to him, and begged him that he would come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Jesus therefore said to him, "Unless you see signs and wonders, you will in no way believe."
4:49 The nobleman said to him, "Sir, come down before my child dies."
4:50 Jesus said to him, "Go your way. Your son lives." The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and he went his way.
4:51 As he was now going down, his servants met him and reported, saying "your child lives!"
4:54 This is again the second sign that Jesus did, having come out of Judea into Galilee.
