John 4:4–26

And he emust needs go through fSamaria. Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called gSychar, near to the parcel of ground hthat Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied iwith his journey, sat kthus on the well: and it was about lthe sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto mthe city to buy meat.) 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 nthe Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10 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 oliving water. 11 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? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But pwhosoever 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 ppeverlasting life. 15 The woman saith unto him, qSir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, rcall thy husband, and come hither. 17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. 19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art sa prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped in tthis mountain; and ye say, that in uJerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, wthe hour cometh, xwhen ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship ythe Father. 22 Ye worship zye know not what: we know what we worship: afor salvation is of the Jews. 23 But wthe hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in bspirit and in ctruth: for the Father dseeketh such to worship him. 24 eGod is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in bspirit and in ctruth. 25 The woman saith unto him, I know that fMessias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, ghe will htell us all things. 26 Jesus saith unto her, iI that speak unto thee am he.
