4:1 Therefore as Jesus knew, that the Pharisees heard, that Jesus maketh and baptizeth more disciples than John, As soon as the lord had knowledge, how that it was come to the ears of the pharises, that Jesus made and baptised more disciples than Jhon Now when the Lord knew, how the Pharises had heard, that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,

4:6 And the well of Jacob was there; soothly Jesus made weary of the journey, sat thus on the well. And the hour was, as it were the sixth. and there was Jacob’s well. Jesus then wearied in his journey, sat thus on the well. It was about the sixth hour: And there was Jacob’s well. Jesus then wearied in the journey, sat thus on the well: it was about the sixth hour.

4:8 And his disciples were gone into the city, to buy meat. (for his disciples were gone away unto the town to buy meat) For his disciples were gone away into the city, to buy meat. For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.
4:9 Therefore that woman of Samaria saith to him, How thou, that art a Jew, askest of me a drink, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews used not to deal with the Samaritans.

(for the jews meddle not with the Samaritans) Then said the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it, that thou being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?

4:10 Jesus answered, and said to her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is, that saith to thee, Give me to drink, thou peradventure wouldest have asked of him, and he should have given to thee quick water. Jesus answered and said unto her: if thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is, that saith to thee give me drink: thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee water of life. Jesus answered & said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me drink, thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee water of life. Jesus answered, and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
4:11 The woman saith to him, Sire, neither thou hast in what thing thou shalt draw, and the pit is deep; whereof then hast thou quick water? The woman said unto him: Sir thou hast nothing to draw it withal, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that water of life? The woman said unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, & the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that water of life? The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the Well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
4:12 Whether thou art greater than our father Jacob, that gave to us the pit? and he drank thereof, and his sons, and his beasts. Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us this well, and he himself drank thereof and his children and his cattle? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, & he himself drank thereof, & his children, and his cattle? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the Well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

4:14 but he that drinketh of the water that I shall give him, shall not thirst into without end; but the water that I shall give him, shall be made in him a well of water, springing up into everlasting life.

4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this hill, and ye say, that at Jerusalem is a place, where it behooveth to worship. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain: and ye say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to pray. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain, and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.

When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea into Galile, he went unto him, & besought him that he would go down, & heal his son: for he was even ready to die. When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
4:48 Therefore Jesus said to him, But ye see tokens and great wonders, ye believe not. Then said Jesus unto him: Except ye see signs and wonders, ye believe not.

4:49 The little king saith to him, Lord, come down, before that my son die. The ruler said unto him: Sir come away or ever that my child die. The ruler said unto him, Sir, go down before my son die. The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
4:50 Jesus saith to him, Go, thy son liveth. The man believed to the word, that Jesus said to him, and he went. Jesus said unto him go thy way, thy son liveth. And the man believed the words that Jesus had spoken unto him, and went his way. Jesus said unto him, Go thy way, thy son liveth: and the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, & went his way. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way, thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
4:51 Soothly now him coming down, the servants came to meet him, and told to him, and saying, That his son lived. And anon as he went on his way, his servants met him, and told him, saying: Thy son liveth, And as he was now going down, his servants met him, saying, Thy son liveth. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
4:52 And he asked of them the hour, in which he was amended. And they said to him, For yesterday in the seventh hour the fever left him. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him: Yesterday the seventh hour, the fever left him. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday the seventh hour the fever left him. Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend: and they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
4:53 Therefore the father knew, that that hour it was, in which Jesus said to him, Thy son liveth; and he believed, and all his house. And the father knew that it was the same hour when Jesus said unto him: Thy son liveth. And he believed, and all his household. Then the father knew, that it was the same hour in the which Jesus had said unto him, Thy son liveth. And he believed, and all his household. So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth, and himself believed, and his whole house.
4:54 Jesus did again this second token, when he came from Judaea into Galilee. This is again the second miracle, that Jesus did, after he came out of jewry into Galile. This second miracle did Jesus again, after he was come out of Judea into Galile. This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judea into Galilee.
