Jesus and Woman at the Well 耶稣和井边的妇人

Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John— although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. Now he had to go through Samaria. So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph.Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) 10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” 11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock? 13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” 15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” 16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.” 17 “I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband.18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.” 19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” 21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” 25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.” 26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.” 27 Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?” or “Why are you talking with her?" 28 Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 29 “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” 30 They came out of the town and made their way toward him. 31 Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” 33 Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” 34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. 35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. 36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37 Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.” 39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41 And because of his words many more became believers. 42 They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.”

耶稣知道,法利赛人听说他收门徒和施洗比约翰更多。 其实不是耶稣亲自施洗,而是他的门徒们施洗。 于是耶稣离开犹太地区,又前往加利利地区。 但他定要经过撒马利亚这样就来到了撒马利亚的一个城,叫叙加。这城靠近雅各给他儿子约瑟的那块地, 雅各井就在那里。耶稣因旅途劳累,就坐在井边。那时大约是中午十二点。有一个撒马利亚妇人来打水。耶稣对她说:“请给我一点水喝。” 那时,他的门徒们进城买食物去了。撒马利亚妇人对他说:“你是犹太人,怎么向我一个撒马利亚妇人要水喝呢?”原来犹太人不和撒马利亚人来往。10 耶稣回答她,说:“如果你明白神的恩赐,也知道是谁对你说‘给我一点水喝’,你早就求他了,他也把活水给你了。” 11 妇人问:“先生,你没有打水的器具,井又深,你从哪里得来那活水呢? 12 难道你比我们的先祖雅各更大吗?他给我们留下了这口井。他自己、他的子孙、他的牲畜都喝这井里的水!” 13 耶稣回答说:“所有喝这水的人,还会再渴。 14 但如果有人喝了我给他的水,就绝不干渴,直到永远。不但如此,我给他的水将要在他里面成为泉源,一直涌流到永恒的生命。” 15 妇人说:“先生,请给我那水,使我不渴,我也不用到这里来打水了。” 16 耶稣说:“去叫你的丈夫,再回到这里来。” 17 妇人回答说:“我没有丈夫。” 耶稣说:“你说你没有丈夫,这话没错。 18 其实你已经有过五个丈夫,你现在有的,不是你的丈夫。你说的是真的。” 19 妇人对他说:“先生,我看出你是先知! 20 我们的祖先在这山上敬拜,而你们却说敬拜的地方必须在耶路撒冷。” 21 耶稣说:“妇人,你当相信我,时候就要到了!那时你们敬拜父,既不在这山上,也不在耶路撒冷22 你们敬拜你们所不认识的;我们却敬拜我们所认识的,因为救恩是出自犹太人的。 23 然而,时候就要到了,现在就是了!那时真正敬拜的人,要在灵里和真理中敬拜父,因为父就是想要这样的人来敬拜他。 24 神是灵,敬拜他的人必须在灵里和真理中敬拜。” 25 妇人说:“我知道那称为基督的弥赛亚要来。他来的时候,就会把一切都传讲给我们。” 26 耶稣说:“这和你说话的我,就是那一位。” 27 正在这时,他的门徒们回来了。他们见耶稣与一个妇人一同说话,就感到惊奇。只是没有人问“你想要什么?”或“你为什么与她说话?” 28 那妇人放下她的水罐,回到城里告诉人们说: 29 “你们来看!有个人把我过去所做的一切都说了出来,这个人会不会就是基督呢?” 30 大家就出城,来到耶稣那里。 31 这其间,门徒们劝耶稣说:“拉比,请吃。” 32 但耶稣说:“我有食物吃,是你们所不知道的。” 33 门徒彼此问:“难道有人拿东西来给他吃了吗?” 34 耶稣对他们说:“我的食物就是遵行那派我来者的旨意,并且完成他的工作。 35 你们不是说‘收割的季节还有四个月才到’吗?看哪,我告诉你们:举目向田里观望,庄稼已经成熟,可以收割了! 36 收割的人得酬报,收集果实归入永恒的生命,好使撒种的和收割的一同快乐。 37 实际上,这样的说法是真实的:‘一人撒种,另一个人收割。’ 38 我派你们去收你们未曾劳苦的;别人劳苦了,你们也进入了他们的劳苦中。” 39 当时,那城里有许多撒马利亚人信了耶稣。这是因为那妇人见证说:“他把我过去所做的一切都说了出来。” 40 这样,撒马利亚人来到耶稣那里的时候,请求他住在他们那里。于是耶稣在那里住了两天。 41 后来,因着耶稣的话,信的人就更多了。42 他们告诉那妇人说:“现在我们信,不再是因为你的话,而是因为我们亲耳听到了,并且知道这一位真是世界的救主。”

We find true fulfilment only in Jesus who gives us the living water and spiritual food.

只有在耶稣里我们才能找到真正的满足,祂给我们活水和灵粮。

Jesus witnessed to the woman at the well, to His disciples and to the Samaritans. How has He witnessed to you?

耶稣曾被井边的妇人,门徒们和撒玛利亚人见证,祂又怎样被你见证?
