(To the woman of Samaria)
Give me a drink.
If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, “Give me a drink,” you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.
Go, call your husband, and come here.
You are right in saying, “I have no husband”; for you have had five husbands, and the one you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.
I who speak to you am he.
(To his disciples in Samaria)
I have food to eat that you do not know about.
My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. Do you not say, “There are yet four months, then comes the harvest”? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, “One sows and another reaps.” I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.
