Teaches the Samaritan woman
the Holy Bible


And he must needs go through Samaria. (4:4)

Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. (4:5)

Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour. (4:6)

There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (4:7)

(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) (4:8)

Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. (4:9)

Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. (4:10)

The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? (4:11)

Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? (4:12)

Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: (4:13)

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. (4:14)

The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. (4:15)

Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. (4:16)

The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: (4:17)

For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. (4:18)

The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. (4:19)

Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. (4:20)

Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. (4:21)

Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (4:22)

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (4:23)

God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth. (4:24)

The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. (4:25)

Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am [he]. (4:26)

And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? (4:27)

The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, (4:28)

Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? (4:29)

Then they went out of the city, and came unto him. (4:30)

In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. (4:31)

But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. (4:32)

Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him [ought] to eat? (4:33)

Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. (4:34)

Say not ye, There are yet four months, and [then] cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. (4:35)

And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. (4:36)

And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. (4:37)

I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. (4:38)

And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. (4:39)

So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. (4:40)

And many more believed because of his own word; (4:41)

And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard [him] ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. (4:42)
