21. Christ's discourse with Nicodemus. THERE was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: aActs 2.22. for a no man can do these miracles that thou Acts 10. doest, except "God be with him. Jesus answered 3 and said unto him, "Verily, verily, I say unto Gal.6.15." thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." Nicodemus saith 4 1Pet. 1.23. unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, 5 Acts 2. "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man "be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot "enter into the kingdom of God. That which 6 "is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is "born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that 7 I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. "The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou 8 hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell "whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit." Nico- 9 demus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto 10 him, "Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest "not these things? verily, verily, I say unto 11 thee, We speak that we do know, and testify "that we have seen; and ye receive not our "witness.

And "this is the condemnation, that light is come "into the world, and men loved darkness rather 20" than light, because their deeds were evil.

25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same 2 according to God. Geneva English. agreeable to God. C.

J. 4. And he must needs go through Samaria. 4, 5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground "that Gen. 33. 6 Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied 24. 32. with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it 7 was about the sixth hour. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith 8 unto her, "Give me to drink." (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the 2 Kings Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Acts 10. 10 Jesus answered and said unto her, "If thou 28. "knewest the gift of God, and who it is that "saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou would"est have asked of him, and he would have 11" given thee living water." The woman saith d Is. 12. 3. unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, Jer. 2. 13. and the well is deep: from whence then hast Zech.13.1. 12 thou that living water? art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his 13 cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, "Who"soever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14" but whosoever drinketh of the water that I

"The Rom. 6. woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, 5. 20. that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16 Jesus saith unto her, "Go, call thy husband, and hung upon him. D. 3 reverenced.

And upon this came his disciples, and mar- 27 velled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her? The woman then left her water- 28 pot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come, see a man, which told me 29 all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto 30 him.
