John 2 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
2 1 Christ turneth water into Wine, 11 which was the beginning of his miracles. 12 He goeth down to Capernaum: 13 from thence he goeth up to Jerusalem, 15 and casteth the merchandise out of the Temple. 19 He foretelleth that the Temple, that is, his body shall be destroyed of the Jews. 23 Many believe in him, seeing the miracles which he did.
2 And Jesus was called also, and his disciples unto the marriage.
3 [c]Now when the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said unto him, They have no wine.
4 Jesus said unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine [d]hour is not yet come.
5 His mother said unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
7 And Jesus said unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. Then they filled them up to the brim.
8 Then he said unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. So they bare it.
9 Now when the governor of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, (for he knew not whence it was, but the servants, which drew the water, knew) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And said unto him, All men at the beginning set forth good wine, and when men have [g]well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept back the good wine until now.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana a town of Galilee, and showed forth his glory: and his disciples believed on him.
12 After that, he went down into Capernaum, he and his mother, and his [h]brethren, and his disciples: but they continued not many days there.
13 [i]For the Jews’ Passover was at hand. Therefore Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 [j]And he found in the Temple those that sold oxen, and sheep, and doves, and changers of money sitting there.
15 Then he made a scourge of small cords and drove them all out of the Temple with the sheep and oxen, and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew their tables,
16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence: make not my father’s house, an house of merchandise.
17 And his disciples remembered, that it was written, The [k]zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
19 Jesus answered, and said unto them, Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this Temple a building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the [n]temple of his body.
22 As soon therefore as he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he thus said unto them: and they believed the Scriptures, and the word which Jesus had said.
23 Now when he was at Jerusalem at the Passover in the feast, many believed in his Name, when they saw his miracles which he did.
24 [o]But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew them all.
25 [p]And had no need that any should testify of man, for he knew what was in man.
John 2 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Changes Water Into Wine
2 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”
4 “Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.[b]
7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”
They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
Jesus Clears the Temple Courts
13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”[c]
18 The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”
19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”
20 They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body. 22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs he was performing and believed in his name.[d] 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people. 25 He did not need any testimony about mankind, for he knew what was in each person.
