Context
The Wedding at Cana

1And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus said to him, They have no wine. 4Jesus said to her, Woman, what have I to do with you? my hour is not yet come. 5His mother said to the servants, Whatever he said to you, do it. 6And there were set there six water pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7Jesus said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8And he said to them, Draw out now, and bear to the governor of the feast. And they bore it. 9When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not from where it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10And said to him, Every man at the beginning does set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but you have kept the good wine until now. 11This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
