The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:1-2 (NKJ)
And from there they (Jesus and His disciples) went out and began to go through Galilee,
and He (Jesus) was unwilling for anyone to know about it.
For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, "The Son of Man is to be delivered
into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will
rise three days later."
But they did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him. Mark
And He (Jesus) had to pass through Samaria. So He came to a city of Samaria, called
Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph; and Jacob's
well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, was sitting thus
by the well. It was about the sixth hour. There came a woman of Samaria to draw
water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink." For His disciples had gone away into
the city to buy food.
The Samaritan woman therefore said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask
me for a drink since I am a Samaritan woman?" (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)
Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who
says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given
you living water." She said to Him, "Sir, you have nothing to draw with and the
well is deep; where then do you get that living water? You are not greater than
our father Jacob, are you, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, and his
sons, and his cattle?"
Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst
again; but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing
up to eternal life." The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, so I will
not be thirsty, nor come all the way here to draw." He said to her, "Go, call your
husband, and come here." The woman answered and said, "I have no husband." Jesus
said to her, "You have well said, 'I have no husband'; for you have had five husbands,
and the one whom you now have is not your husband; this you have said truly."
The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped
in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought
to worship." Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither
in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall you worship the Father. You worship that
which you do not know; we worship that which we know, for salvation is from the
Jews. But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship
the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." The
woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming (He who is called Christ); when
that One comes, He will declare all things to us." Jesus said to her, "I who speak
to you am He." And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He had
been speaking with a woman; yet no one said, "What do You seek?" or, "Why do You
speak with her?" So the woman left her waterpot, and went into the city, and said
to the men, "Come, see a man who told me all the things that I have done; this is
not the Christ, is it?" They went out of the city, and were coming to Him. John
