John 2 (Peshitta)

2:1On the third day there was a marriage feast in Cana, a city of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there.

2:2And Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the marriage feast.

2:3And when the wine ran low, his mother said to Jesus, They have no wine.

2:4Jesus said to her, What is it to me and to you, woman? My turn has not yet come.

2:5His mother said to the helpers, Whatever he tells you, do it.

2:6And there were Six stone jars placed there for the purification of the Jews, which could hold several gallons each.

2:7Jesus said to them, Fill the jars with water; and they filled them up to the brim.

2:8Then he said to them, Draw out now and bring it to the chief guest [Master of ceremonies.] of the feast. And they brought it.

2:9And when the chief guest tasted the water that had become wine, he did not know whence it had come; but the helpers knew, who had drawn the water. Then the chief guest called the bridegroom

2:10And said to him, Every man at the first brings the best wine; and when they have drunk, then that which is weak; but you have kept the best wine until now.

2:11This is the first miracle which Jesus performed in Cana of Galilee, and thus he showed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

2:12After this he went down to Capernaum, he and his mother and his brothers and his disciples; and they remained there a few days.

2:13And the Jewish passover was nearing; so Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2:14And he found in the temple those who were buying oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting.

2:15And he made a whip of cord, and drove them all out of the temple, even the sheep and the oxen and the money changers; and he threw out their exchange money and upset their trays;

2:16And to those who sold doves he said, Take these away from here; do not make my Father's house a house of trading.

2:17And his disciples remembered that it is written, The zeal for thy house has given me courage.

2:18The Jews answered, saying to him, What sign do you show us, that you are doing these things?

2:19Jesus answered, saying to them, Tear down this temple and in three days I will raise it up.

2:20The Jews said to him, It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?

2:21But he spoke concerning the temple of his body.

2:22When he rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scriptures and the word which Jesus had said.

2:23Now when Jesus was in Jerusalem at the passover, during the feast, a great many believed in him, because they saw the miracles which he did.

2:24But Jesus did not entrust himself to them, because he understood every man.

2:25And he needed no man to testify to him concerning any man; for he knew well what was in man.
