1And on the third day a marriage happened in Cana of Galilee and the mother of Jesus was there. 2And also Jesus was invited and His disciples unto the marriage. 3And having been deficient of wine (oinou), Jesus’ mother says to Him, They do not have wine. 4And Jesus says to her, Woman, What to Me and to you? My hour is not yet come. 5His mother says to the servants (diakonois), Whatever He might say to you, do. gallons or 39.39 liters). 6Now there were lying six waterpots of stone according to the purification of the Jews having space for two or three metretae ( a liquid measure containing 8.75 gallons or 39.39 liters). 7Jesus says to them, Fill full (load, greek-gemisate) the waterpots with water. And they were filled them full as far as the top (brim, above, up, latin-summum-top). 8And He says to them, Draw out now and carry to the banquet-superintendent (ruler/head of a dining room with three couches). And they carried it. 9And when the banquet-superintendent had tasted the water having become wine and did not know from where it is, however the servants having drawn the water knew, the banquet-superintendent calls the bridegroom (nymphion, latin-sponsum-spouse), 10And says to him, Every man places first the good (kalon-winsomely good) wine and when they might have become drunk (methysthosin- common word for being intoxicated, latin-inebriati-intoxicated like inebriated), then the inferior (lesser, smaller); you have kept the good wine until just now. 11This beginning of the signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and made apparent His glory; and His disciples believed in (unto) Him.

12After this He went down unto Capernaum, He and His mother and His brothers and His disciples and there they stayed not many days.

13And the Passover (pascha-the feast of Passover) of the Jews was near and Jesus went up unto Jerusalem. 14And He found in the temple those selling oxen and sheep and doves and the money-changers sitting. 15And having made a whip from out of cords, He drove out all from the temple, both sheep and oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money-changers, and overturned the tables. 16And to those selling doves, He said, Take these things from here; Do not make the house of My Father a house of trade (emporiou like an emporium, a marketplace for trading). 17His disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal of Your house will consume Me. 18Then the Jews answered and said to Him, What sign do You show to us that You do these things? 19Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. 20Then the Jews said, Forty and six years was this temple built and You will raise it up in three days? 21However He spoke concerning the temple of His body. 22When therefore He was raised up from out of the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this and believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

23And when He was in Jerusalem in the Passover, at the Feast, many believed unto His name, beholding His signs which He was doing. 24However Jesus Himself did not entrust Himself to them, because of His knowing all [men]. 25And that He had no need that any should testify concerning man, for He knew what was in man.
