2 Kings chapter 21

1
Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign; and he reigned five and fifty years in Jerusalem: and his mother`s name was Hephzibah.
2
And he did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, after the abominations of the nations whom Jehovah cast out before the children of Israel.
3
For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made an Asherah, as did Ahab king of Israel, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
4
And he built altars in the house of Jehovah, whereof Jehovah said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.
5
And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of Jehovah.
6
And he made his son to pass through the fire, and practised augury, and used enchantments, and dealt with them that had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of Jehovah, to provoke him to anger.
7
And he set the graven image of Asherah, that he had made, in the house of which Jehovah said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever;
8
neither will I cause the feet of Israel to wander any more out of the land which I gave their fathers, if only they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.
9
But they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced them to do that which is evil more than did the nations whom Jehovah destroyed before the children of Israel.
10
And Jehovah spake by his servants the prophets, saying,
11
Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, that were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols;
12
therefore thus saith Jehovah, the God of Israel, Behold, I bring such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
13
And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab; and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
14
And I will cast off the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;
15
because they have done that which is evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day.
16
Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; besides his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah.
17
Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all that he did, and his sin that he sinned, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
18
And Manasseh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
19
Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem: and his mother`s name was Meshullemeth the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
20
And he did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, as did Manasseh his father.
21
And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them:
22
and he forsook Jehovah, the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of Jehovah.
23
And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house.
24
But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.
25
Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
26
And he was buried in his sepulchre in the garden of Uzza: and Josiah his son reigned in his stead.

2 Chronicles chapter 33

1
Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign; and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem.
2
And he did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, after the abominations of the nations whom Jehovah cast out before the children of Israel.
3
For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down; and he reared up altars for the Baalim, and made Asheroth, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
4
And he built altars in the house of Jehovah, whereof Jehovah said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.
5
And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of Jehovah.
6
He also made his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; and he practised augury, and used enchantments, and practised sorcery, and dealt with them that had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of Jehovah, to provoke him to anger.
7
And he set the graven image of the idol, which he had made, in the house of God, of which God said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
8
neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from off the land which I have appointed for your fathers, if only they will observe to do all that I have commanded them, even all the law and the statutes and the ordinances [given] by Moses.
9
And Manasseh seduced Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that they did evil more than did the nations whom Jehovah destroyed before the children of Israel.
10
And Jehovah spake to Manasseh, and to his people; but they gave no heed.
11
Wherefore Jehovah brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.
12
And when he was in distress, he besought Jehovah his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers.
13
And he prayed unto him; and he was entreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that Jehovah he was God.
14
Now after this he built an outer wall to the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entrance at the fish gate; and he compassed Ophel about [with it], and raised it up to a very great height: and he put valiant captains in all the fortified cities of Judah.
15
And he took away the foreign gods, and the idol out of the house of Jehovah, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of Jehovah, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city.
16
And he built up the altar of Jehovah, and offered thereon sacrifices of peace-offerings and of thanksgiving, and commanded Judah to serve Jehovah, the God of Israel.
17
Nevertheless the people sacrificed still in the high places, but only unto Jehovah their God.
18
Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and his prayer unto his God, and the words of the seers that spake to him in the name of Jehovah, the God of Israel, behold, they are written among the acts of the kings of Israel.
19
His prayer also, and how [God] was entreated of him, and all his sin and his trespass, and the places wherein he built high places, and set up the Asherim and the graven images, before he humbled himself: behold, they are written in the history of Hozai.
20
So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him in his own house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.
21
Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem.
22
And he did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, as did Manasseh his father; and Amon sacrificed unto all the graven images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them.
23
And he humbled not himself before Jehovah, as Manasseh his father had humbled himself; but this same Amon trespassed more and more.
24
And his servants conspired against him, and put him to death in his own house.
25
But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.

John chapter 4

1
When therefore the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John
2
(although Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples),
3
he left Judea, and departed again into Galilee.
4
And he must needs pass through Samaria.
5
So he cometh to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph:
6
and Jacob`s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
7
There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8
For his disciples were gone away into the city to buy food.
9
The Samaritan woman therefore saith unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, who am a Samaritan woman? (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)
10
Jesus answered and said unto unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11
The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: whence then hast thou that living water?
12
Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his sons, and his cattle?
13
Jesus answered and said unto her, Every one that drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14
but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto eternal life.
15
The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come all the way hither to draw.
16
Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17
The woman answered and said unto him, I have no husband. Jesus saith unto her, Thou saidst well, I have no husband:
18
for thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: this hast thou said truly.
19
The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20
Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall ye worship the Father.
22
Ye worship that which ye know not: we worship that which we know; for salvation is from the Jews.
23
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers.
24
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
25
The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh (he that is called Christ): when he is come, he will declare unto us all things.
26
Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am [he].
27
And upon this came his disciples; and they marvelled that he was speaking with a woman; yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why speakest thou with her?
28
So the woman left her waterpot, and went away into the city, and saith to the people,
29
Come, see a man, who told me all things that [ever] I did: can this be the Christ?
30
They went out of the city, and were coming to him.
31
In the mean while the disciples prayed him, saying, Rabbi, eat.
32
But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not.
33
The disciples therefore said one to another, Hath any man brought him [aught] to eat?
34
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to accomplish his work.
35
Say not ye, There are yet four months, and [then] cometh the harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white already unto harvest.
36
He that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal; that he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37
For herein is the saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38
I sent you to reap that whereon ye have not labored: others have labored, and ye are entered into their labor.
39
And from that city many of the Samaritans believed on him because of the word of the woman, who testified, He told me all things that [ever] I did.
40
So when the Samaritans came unto him, they besought him to abide with them: and he abode there two days.
41
And many more believed because of his word;
42
and they said to the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy speaking: for we have heard for ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Saviour of the world.
43
And after the two days he went forth from thence into Galilee.
44
For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honor in his own country.
45
So when he came into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did in Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
46
He came therefore again unto Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47
When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought [him] that he would come down, and heal his son; for he was at the point of death.
48
Jesus therefore said unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will in no wise believe.
49
The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
50
Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. The man believed the word that Jesus spake unto him, and he went his way.
51
And as he was now going down, his servants met him, saying, that his son lived.
52
So he inquired of them the hour when he began to amend. They said therefore unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
53
So the father knew that [it was] at that hour in which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
54
This is again the second sign that Jesus did, having come out of Judaea into Galilee.
