the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship; for salvation is of the Jews.
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.
God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he. 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?
The woman then left her water-pot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
Come, see a man which told me all things that ever I did : Is not this the Christ?
Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
In the mean-while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest ? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look ou the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal; that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon
bestowed no labour : other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
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.
So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they bęsought him that he would tarry with them : and he abode there two days.
And many more believed because of his own word;
And said unto the woman, Now we believe, pot because of thy saying; for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
CHAPTER XXII. At Cana, Jesus cures a youth that was lying
sick at Capernaum. HEROD had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.
Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God.
And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent ye, and believe the gospel,
And there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.
And he taught in their synagogues being glorified of all.
The Galileans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him,
So the father knew that it was at the same hour in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judea inta Galilee.
CHAPTER XXIII. Jesus goes to Nazareth, but is expelled by his
Countrymen. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor: he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son ?
And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country:
And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.
But I tell you of a truth, Many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land ;
But unto none of thein was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.
And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
