A Samaritan woman came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me some water to drink.” (For
His disciples had gone off into the town to buy supplies.) So the Samaritan woman said to Him,
“How can you—a Jew—ask me, a Samaritan woman, for water to drink?” (For Jews use nothing in
common with Samaritans.)

Jesus answered her, “If you had known the gift of God and who it is who said to you, ‘Give me
some water to drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” “Sir,”
the woman said to Him, “you have no bucket and the well is deep; Where then do you get this
living water? Surely you’re not greater than our ancestor Jacob, are you? For he gave us this well
and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his livestock.”

Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks
some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him
will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.” The woman said to Him, “Sir,
give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water.” He said to her,
“Go call your husband and come back here.” The woman replied, “I have no husband.” Jesus said
to her, “Right you are when you said, ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the
man you are living with now is not your husband. This you said truthfully!”

The woman said to Him, “Sir, I see that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain,
and you people say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem.” Jesus said to her,
“Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain
nor in Jerusalem. You people worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because
salvation is from the Jews. But a time is coming—and now is here—when the true worshipers will
worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. God
is spirit, and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” The woman said to
him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (the one called Christ); “whenever He comes, He will tell us
everything.” Jesus said to her, “I, the one speaking to you, am He…”

Now many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the report of the woman who
testified, “He told me everything I ever did.”
