John 4:31-54 Darby’s Translation

31  But meanwhile the disciples asked him saying, Rabbi, eat. 32  But he said to them, I have food to eat which ye do not know. 33  The disciples therefore said to one another, Has any one brought him [anything] to eat? 34  Jesus says to them, My food is that I should do the will of him that has sent me, and that I should finish his work. 35  Do not ye say, that there are yet four months and the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes and behold the fields, for they are already white to harvest. 36  He that reaps receives wages and gathers fruit unto life eternal, that both he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together. 37  For in this is [verified] the true saying, It is one who sows and another who reaps. 38  I have sent you to reap that on which ye have not laboured; others have laboured, and ye have entered into their labours. 39  But many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him because of the word of the woman who bore witness, He told me all things that I had ever done. 40  When therefore the Samaritans came to him they asked him to abide with them, and he abode there two days. 41  And more a great deal believed on account of his word; 42  and they said to the woman, [It is] no longer on account of thy saying that we believe, for we have heard him ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Saviour of the world.

Jesus Heals a Nobleman's Son

43  But after the two days he went forth thence and went away into Galilee, 44  for Jesus himself bore witness that a prophet has no honour in his own country. 45  When therefore he came into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all that he had done in Jerusalem during the feast, for they also went to the feast. 46  He came therefore again to Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain courtier in Capernaum whose son was sick. 47  He, having heard that Jesus had come out of Judaea into Galilee, went to him and asked [him] that he would come down and heal his son, for he was about to die. 48  Jesus therefore said to him, Unless ye see signs and wonders ye will not believe. 49  The courtier says to him, Sir, come down ere my child die. 50  Jesus says to him, Go, thy son lives. And the man believed the word which Jesus said to him, and went his way. 51  But already, as he was going down, his servants met him and brought [him] word saying, Thy child lives. 52  He inquired therefore from them the hour at which he got better. And they said to him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. 53  The father therefore knew that [it was] in that hour in which Jesus said to him, Thy son lives; and he believed, himself and his whole house. 54  This second sign again did Jesus, being come out of Judaea into Galilee.
