Context
Jesus and the Samaritan Woman

1When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, 2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,) 3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee. 4And he must needs go through Samaria. 5Then comes he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. 7There comes a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus said to her, Give me to drink. 8(For his disciples were gone away to the city to buy meat.) 9Then said the woman of Samaria to him, How is it that you, being a Jew, ask drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that said to you, Give me to drink; you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water. 11The woman said to him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from where then have you that living water? 12Are you greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13Jesus answered and said to her, Whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again: 14But whoever drinks 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 everlasting life. 15The woman said to him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come here to draw. 16Jesus said to her, Go, call your husband, and come here. 17The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have well said, I have no husband: 18For you have had five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband: in that said you truly. 19The woman said to him, Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and you say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21Jesus said to her, Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when you shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22You worship you know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him. 24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25The woman said to him, I know that Messias comes, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26Jesus said to her, I that speak to you am he.
