The Wedding at Cana

1Three days after, there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee; where the mother of Jesus was present. 2as likewise Jesus and his disciples, who were all invited to the feast. 3now when the wine was out, the mother of Jesus said to him, they have no wine. 4Jesus answer'd her, woman, leave that affair to me, is not that my concern? 5upon which his mother bid the servants do whatever he should order. 6now there were six cisterns of stone plac'd there for the use of the Jews in their purifications, containing two or three firkins a-piece. 7these Jesus order'd the waiters to fill with water, so they filled them up to the brim. 8now fill out, said he, and carry it to the steward of the feast, which accordingly they did. 9as soon as the steward had tasted the water that was made wine, (for he did not know whence it came, but the servants who drew the water knew it,) he called the bridegroom, 10and said to him, 'tis usual to present the best wine first, and afterwards the worse, when the guests have drank pretty freely: but you have reserved the best wine to the last. 11thus was the first miracle of Jesus wrought at Cana in Galilee, by which he displayed his power; and his disciples believed on him.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple
(Matthew 21:12–17; Mark 11:15–19; Luke 19:45–48)

12After this he went down to Capernaum, in company with his mother, his brethren, and his disciples: but they stay'd there only a few days.

13for the Jews passover being nigh, Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14where he found in the temple those that sold oxen, sheep, and doves, besides the changers of money, who were sitting there. 15upon which he made a whip of small cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with their sheep, and oxen; and threw about the changers money, and over-set the tables; and said to the dove-sellers, 16away with these things; make not my father's house a market-house. 17which put his disciples in mind of that passage, "my zeal for thine house does prey upon me." 18whereupon the Jews said, what miracle can you show to justify your behaviour? 19Jesus answered them, saying, destroy this temple, and within three days I will raise it up. 20to this said the Jews, forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21but by the temple he meant his body. 22and when he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembred that expression of his: and they believed the scripture, and what Jesus had said.

23Now whilst he was in Jerusalem at the feast of the passover, many believed in him when they saw the miracles which he did. 24but Jesus did not trust his person with them, because he knew them all. 25and he did not want any information concerning man: for he knew of himself the secret of their hearts.
