Chapter 2John

2

1 And the third :day there was a marriage in Cana of :Galilee; and the mother of :Jesus was there: 2 and :Jesus also was bidden, and his :disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when the wine failed, the mother of :Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4 And :Jesus saith to her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine :hour is not yet come. 5 His :mother saith to the servants, Whatever he saith to you, do. 6 Now six waterpots of stone were set there according to the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7 Saith :Jesus to them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he saith to them, Draw out now, and bear to the feast-ruler. And they brought it. 9 And when the feast-ruler tasted the water become wine, and knew not whence it was (but the servants that had drawn the water knew), the feast-ruler calleth the bridegroom, 10 and saith to him, Every man setteth on the good wine first; and when they have drunk freely, then the inferior: THOU till now hast kept the good wine. 11 This beginning of :signs did :Jesus in Cana of :Galilee, and manifested his :glory; and his disciples believed on him.
 
12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his :mother, and the brethren, and his :disciples; and there they abode not many days.
13 And the passover of the Jews was nigh, and :Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 And he found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers sitting: 15 and he made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the money of the changers, and overthrew their tables; 16 and to the :dove-sellers he said, Take these hence; make not the house of my :Father a house of merchandise. 17 His :disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal for thy :house is devouring me. 18 The Jews therefore answered and said to him, What sign showest thou us, because thou doest these things? 19 Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this :sanctuary, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this :sanctuary in building, and wilt THOU raise it up in three days? 21 But HE spake of the sanctuary of his :body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his :disciples remembered that he said this, and believed the scripture, and the word which :Jesus had said.

23 Now when he was in :Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, many believed unto his :name, beholding his :signs which he did. 24 But Jesus himself did not trust himself to them, for that he knew all men, 25 and because he had no need that anyone bear witness concerning :man; for himself knew what was in :man.
