2 1And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the
mother of Jesus was there:
2and Jesus also was bidden, and his disciples,
to the marriage.
3And when the wine failed, the mother of Jesus saith
unto him, They have no wine.
4And Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have
I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
5His mother saith unto the
servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
6Now there were six
waterpots of stone set there after the Jews' manner of purifying, containing
two or three firkins apiece.
7Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots
with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
8And he saith unto them,
Draw out now, and bear unto the ruler of the feast. And they bare it.
9And when the ruler of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and
knew not whence it was (but the servants that had drawn the water knew), the
ruler of the feast calleth the bridegroom,
10and saith unto him, Every
man setteth on first the good wine; and when men have drunk freely,
then that which is worse: thou hast kept the good wine until now.
11This beginning of his signs did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
12After this he
went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his
disciples; and there they abode not many days.
13And the passover of the
Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14And he found in the
temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money
15and he made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the
temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money,
and overthrew their tables;
16and to them that sold the doves he said,
Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise.
17His disciples remembered that it was written, Zeal for thy house shall
eat me up.
18The Jews therefore answered and said unto him, What sign
showest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will
raise it up.
20The Jews therefore said, Forty and six years was this
temple in building, and wilt thou raise it up in three days?
spake of the temple of his body.
22When therefore he was raised from the
dead, his disciples remembered that he spake this; and they believed the
scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
23Now when he was in
Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, many believed on his name,
beholding his signs which he did.
24But Jesus did not trust himself unto
them, for that he knew all men,
25and because he needed not that any one
should bear witness concerning man; for he himself knew what was in man.
