[1] 14791479    Mark vii. 31.And Jesus went out again from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came to the [2] sea of Galilee, towards the borders of Decapolis.  14801480    Mark vii. 32.And they brought unto him one dumb and deaf, and entreated him that he would lay his hand upon him and heal [3] him.  14811481    Mark vii. 33.And he drew him away from the multitude, and went away alone, and spat [4] upon his fingers, and thrust them into his ears, and touched his tongue; 14821482    Mark vii. 34.and looked [5] to heaven, and sighed, and said unto him, Be opened.  14831483    Mark vii. 35.And in that hour his ears [6] were opened, and the bond of his tongue was loosed, and he spake with ease.  14841484    Mark vii. 36.And Jesus charged them much that they should not tell this to any man:  but the more [7] he charged them, the more they increased in publishing, and marvelled much, 14851485    Mark vii. 37.and [Arabic, p. 82] said, This man doeth everything well:  he made the deaf to hear, and those that lacked speech to speak.

[8, 9] 14861486    John iv. 4.And while he was passing through the land of Samaria, 14871487    John iv. 5.he came to one of the cities of the Samaritans, called Sychar, beside the field which Jacob gave to Joseph to [10] his son.  14881488    John iv. 6.And there was there a spring of water of Jacob’s.  And Jesus was fatigued from the exertion of the way, and sat at the spring.  And the time was about the [11] sixth hour.14891489    Lit. six hours (cf. Syr.).  14901490    John iv. 7.And a woman of Samaria came to draw water; and Jesus said unto [12] her, Give me water, that I may drink.  14911491    John iv. 8.And his disciples had entered into the city [13] to buy for themselves food.  14921492    John iv. 9.And that Samaritan woman said unto him, How dost thou, being a Jew, ask me to give thee to drink, while I am a Samaritan woman?  [14] 14931493    John iv. 10.(And the Jews mingle not with the Samaritans.14941494    For the form cf. below, § 34, 40.)  Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who this is that said unto thee, Give me [15] to drink; thou wouldest ask him, and he would give thee the water of life.  14951495    John iv. 11.That woman said unto him, My Lord, thou hast no bucket, and the well is deep:  from [16] whence hast thou the water of life?  14961496    John iv. 12.Can it be that thou art greater than our father Jacob, who gave us this well, and drank from it, and his children, and his sheep?  [17] 14971497    John iv. 13.Jesus answered and said unto her, Every one that drinketh of this water shall thirst [18] again:  14981498    John iv. 14.but whosoever drinketh of the water which I shall give him shall not thirst for ever:  but the water which I shall give him shall be in him a spring of water springing [19] up unto eternal life.  14991499    John iv. 15.That woman said unto him, My Lord, give me of this water, that [20] I may not thirst again, neither come and draw water from here.  15001500    John iv. 16.Jesus said unto her, [21] [Arabic, p. 83] Go and call thy husband, and come hither.  15011501    John iv. 17.She said unto him, I have no [22] husband.  15021502    John iv. 18.Jesus said unto her, Thou saidst well, I have no husband:  five husbands hast thou had, and this man whom thou hast now is not thy husband; and [23] in this thou saidst truly.  15031503    John iv. 19.That woman said unto him, My Lord, I perceive thee to [24] be a prophet.  15041504    John iv. 20.Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say that in Jerusalem [25] is the place in which worship must be.  15051505    John iv. 21.Jesus said unto her, Woman, believe me, an hour cometh, when neither in this mountain, nor yet in Jerusalem, shall ye worship [26] the Father.  15061506    John iv. 22.Ye worship that which ye know not:  but we worship that which [27] we know:  for salvation is of the Jews.  15071507    John iv. 23.But an hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth:  and the Father also [28] seeketh such as these worshippers.  15081508    John iv. 24.For God is a Spirit:  and they that worship him [29] must worship him in spirit and in truth.  15091509    John iv. 25.That woman said unto him, I know that [30] the Messiah cometh:  15101510    John iv. 26.and when he is come, he will teach us everything.  Jesus said unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

[31] 15111511    John iv. 27.And while he was speaking, his disciples came; and they wondered how he would speak15121512    Or, was speaking. with a woman; but not one of them said unto him, What seekest thou? or, [32] What15131513    But see note to § 7, 38. speakest thou with her?  15141514    John iv. 28.And the woman left her waterpot, and went to the [33] city, and said to the people, 15151515    John iv. 29.Come, and see a man who told me all that ever I did:  [34] perhaps then he is the Messiah.  15161516    John iv. 30.And people went out from the city, and came to [35] him.  15171517    John iv. 31.And in the mean while his disciples besought him, and said unto him, Our [36, 37] master, eat.  15181518    John iv. 32.And he said unto them, I have food to eat that ye know not.  15191519    John iv. 33.And the disciples said amongst themselves, Can any one have brought him aught to eat?15201520    The text is uncertain.  77[38] 15211521    John iv. 34.Jesus said unto them, My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish [39] [Arabic, p. 84] his work.  15221522    John iv. 35.Said ye not that after four months cometh the harvest? behold, I therefore say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and behold the lands, [40] that they have become white, and the harvest is already come.15231523    Or, come beforehand.  15241524    John iv. 36.And he that reapeth receiveth his wages, and gathereth the fruit of eternal life;15251525    So in the Arabic, contrary to the usual practice of this writer (cf. § 6, 19). and the sower and [41] the reaper rejoice together.  15261526    John iv. 37.For in this is found the word of truth, One soweth, and [42] another reapeth.  15271527    John iv. 38.And I sent you to reap that in which ye have not laboured:  others laboured, and ye have entered on their labour.

[43] 15281528    John iv. 39.And from that city many of the Samaritans believed in him because of the words [44] of that woman, who testified and said, He told me all that ever I did.  15291529    John iv. 40.And when those Samaritans came unto him, they besought him to abide with them; and he [45, 46] abode with them two days.  15301530    John iv. 41.And many believed in him because of his word; 15311531    John iv. 42.and they said to that woman, Now not because of thy saying have we believed in him:  we have heard and known that this truly is the Messiah, the Saviour of the world.

[47, 48] 15321532    John iv. 43.And after two days Jesus went out thence and departed to Galilee.  15331533    John iv. 44.And Jesus [49] testified that a prophet is not honoured in his own city.  15341534    John iv. 45a.And when he came to Galilee, the Galilæans received him.
