Ch 4 John

John 4

4:1 Ary noho izany, when Jesus realized that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made more disciples and baptized more than John,
4:2 (though Jesus himself was not baptizing, but only his disciples)
4:3 he left behind Judea, and he traveled again to Galilee.
4:4 Now he needed to cross through Samaria.
4:5 Noho izany, he went into a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the estate which Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
4:6 And Jacob’s well was there. Ary toy izany koa i Jesosy, being tired from the journey, was sitting in a certain way on the well. It was about the sixth hour.
4:7 A woman of Samaria arrived to draw water. Jesosy nanao taminy hoe:, “Give me to drink.”
4:8 For his disciples had gone into the city in order to buy food.
4:9 Ary noho izany, that Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, being a Jew, are requesting a drink from me, though I am a Samaritan woman?” For the Jews do not associate with the Samaritans.
4:10 Jesus responded and said to her: “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to you, ‘Give me to drink,’ perhaps you would have made a request of him, and he would have given you living water.”
4:11 The woman said to him: "Tompo ô, you do not have anything with which to draw water, and the well is deep. From where, avy eo, do you have living water?
4:12 Azo antoka, you are not greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and who drank from it, with his sons and his cattle?"
4:13 Jesus responded and said to her: “All who drink from this water will thirst again. But whoever shall drink from the water that I will give to him will not thirst for eternity.
4:14 Fa tsy, the water that I will give to him will become in him a fountain of water, springing up into eternal life.”
4:15 The woman said to him, "Tompo ô, give me this water, so that I may not thirst and may not come here to draw water.”
4:16 Jesosy nanao taminy hoe:, "Mandehana, call your husband, and return here.”
4:17 The woman responded and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her: “You have spoken well, in nanao hoe:, ‘I have no husband.’
4:18 For you have had five husbands, but he whom you have now is not your husband. You have spoken this in truth.”
4:19 The woman said to him: "Tompo ô, I see that you are a Prophet.
4:20 Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, but you say that Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
4:21 Jesosy nanao taminy hoe:: "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when you shall worship the Father, neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem.
4:22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know. For salvation is from the Jews.
4:23 But the hour is coming, fa efa, when true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeks such persons who may worship him.
4:24 God is Spirit. Ary noho izany, those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”
4:25 The woman said to him: “I know that the Messiah is coming (who is called the Christ). Ary avy eo, when he will have arrived, he will announce everything to us.”
4:26 Jesosy nanao taminy hoe:: "Izaho no izy, the one who is speaking with you.”
4:27 And then his disciples arrived. And they wondered that he was speaking with the woman. Yet no one said: "Inona no mitady?"na, “Why are you talking with her?"
4:28 And so the woman left behind her water jar and went into the city. And she said to the men there:
4:29 “Come and see a man who has told me all the things that I have done. Is he not the Christ?"
4:30 Noho izany, they went out of the city and came to him.
4:31 Mandritra izany fotoana izany, the disciples petitioned him, nanao hoe:, "Rabbi, eat.”
4:32 Fa hoy Izy taminy:, “I have food to eat which you do not know.”
4:33 Noho izany, the disciples said to one another, “Could someone have brought him something to eat?"
4:34 Hoy Jesosy taminy:: “My food is to do the will of the One who sent me, so that I may perfect his work.
4:35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months, and then the harvest arrives?’ Behold, Lazaiko aminareo: Lift up your eyes and look at the countryside; for it is already ripe for the harvest.
4:36 For he who reaps, receives wages and gathers fruit unto eternal life, so that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
4:37 For in this the word is true: that it is one who sows, and it is another who reaps.
4:38 I have sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”
4:39 Now many of the Samaritans from that city believed in him, because of the word of the woman who was offering testimony: “For he told me all the things that I have done.”
4:40 Noho izany, when the Samaritans had come to him, they petitioned him to lodge there. And he lodged there for two days.
4:41 And many more believed in him, because of his own word.
4:42 And they said to the woman: “Now we believe, not because of your speech, but because we ourselves have heard him, and so we know that he is truly the Savior of the world.”
4:43 Avy eo, rehefa afaka roa andro, dia niala teo Izy, Ary nandeha ho any Galilia.
4:44 Fa ny tenan'i Jesosy nanolotra fijoroana ho vavolombelona fa tsy misy mpaminany manan-daza eo amin'ny taniny.
4:45 Ary noho izany, rehefa tonga tany Galilia, nandray Azy ny Galiliana, satria efa hitany izay rehetra nataony tany Jerosalema, amin'ny andro firavoravoana. Fa izy ireo koa mba niakatra tamin'ny andro firavoravoana.
4:46 Avy eo dia lasa indray ho any Kana any Galilia, dia tany amin'ilay nampodiany ny rano ho divay. Ary nisy mpanapaka anankiray, izay nanana zanakalahy narary tany Kapernaomy.
4:47 Satria efa reny fa Jesosy tonga tany Galilia avy tany Jodia, dia naniraka ho any aminy ka nangataka azy hidina hanasitrana ny zanany. Fa dia manomboka ho faty.
4:48 Noho izany, Fa hoy Jesosy taminy, "Raha tsy efa nahita famantarana sy fahagagana, tsy mino. "
4:49 Ny mpitondra nanao taminy hoe:, "Tompo ô, tonga teo anatrehany maty ny zanako. "
4:50 Fa hoy Jesosy taminy, "Mandehana, velona ny zanakao. "Ary ralehilahy nino ny teny izay nolazain'i Jesosy taminy, ka dia lasa nandeha.
4:51 Avy eo, nony nidina, nitsena azy ny mpanompony. Dia nilaza taminy, nilaza fa velona ny zanany.
4:52 Noho izany, dia nanontany azy ireo tamin'ny ora izay efa ho tonga tsara kokoa. Ary hoy izy ireo taminy, "Omaly, tamin'ny ora fahafito, no nialan'ny tazo taminy. "
4:53 Ary ny rainy fantany fa tamin'izay indrindra no ora izay hoy Jesosy taminy:, "Velona ny zanakao." Ary dia izy sy ny ankohonany rehetra dia nino.
4:54 Zavatra tsy manaraka no famantarana faharoa nataon'i Jesosy vita, taorian 'ny efa tonga tany Galilia avy tany Jodia.
