2And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.2Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding as well.
3And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.3When the wine ran out, Jesus' mother told Him, "They don't have any wine."
4Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.4"What has this concern of yours to do with Me, woman?" Jesus asked. "My hour has not yet come.""
5His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.5Do whatever He tells you," His mother told the servants.
6And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.6Now six stone water jars had been set there for Jewish purification. Each contained 20 or 30 gallons.
7Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.7"Fill the jars with water," Jesus told them. So they filled them to the brim.
8And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.8Then He said to them, "Now draw some out and take it to the chief servant." And they did.
9When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,9When the chief servant tasted the water (after it had become wine), he did not know where it came from--though the servants who had drawn the water knew. He called the groom
10And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.10and told him, "Everyone sets out the fine wine first, then, after people have drunk freely, the inferior. But you have kept the fine wine until now."
11This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.11Jesus performed this first sign in Cana of Galilee. He displayed His glory, and His disciples believed in Him.
12After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.12After this, He went down to Capernaum, together with His mother, His brothers, and His disciples, and they stayed there only a few days.
13And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,13The Jewish Passover was near, so Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:14In the temple complex He found people selling oxen, sheep, and doves, and He also found the money changers sitting there.
15And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;15After making a whip out of cords, He drove everyone out of the temple complex with their sheep and oxen. He also poured out the money changers' coins and overturned the tables.
16And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.16He told those who were selling doves, "Get these things out of here! Stop turning My Father's house into a marketplace!"
17And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.17And His disciples remembered that it is written: Zeal for Your house will consume Me.
18Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?18So the Jews replied to Him, "What sign of authority will You show us for doing these things?"
19Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.19Jesus answered, "Destroy this sanctuary, and I will raise it up in three days."
20Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?20Therefore the Jews said, "This sanctuary took 46 years to build, and will You raise it up in three days?"
21But he spake of the temple of his body.21But He was speaking about the sanctuary of His body.
22When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.22So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this. And they believed the Scripture and the statement Jesus had made.
23Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.23While He was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many trusted in His name when they saw the signs He was doing.
24But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,24Jesus, however, would not entrust Himself to them, since He knew them all
25And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.25and because He did not need anyone to testify about man; for He Himself knew what was in man.
