CHAP. IV. 4 And he must needs go through Samaria. 5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria,” which is called Sichar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his Son Joseph. 6 Now Jacob's well was there, Jesus therefore being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well : and it was about the sixth hour. 7. There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. - 8 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 Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep : from whence then hast thou that living water : 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him, shall never thirst: but the
