3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 aThis man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for bno one can do these signs that You do unless cGod is with him.”
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, dunless one is born 1again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old?
Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, eunless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is fflesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 1

But the water that I shall give him iwill become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
15 jThe woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”
16 Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”
17 The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.”
Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ 18 for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”
19 The woman said to Him, “Sir, kI perceive that You are a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshiped on lthis mountain, and you Jews say that in mJerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming nwhen you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 You worship owhat you do not know; we know what we worship, for psalvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will qworship the Father in rspirit sand truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
24 tGod is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah uis coming” (who is called Christ).
“When He comes, vHe will tell us all things.”
26 Jesus said to her, w“I who speak to you am He.”2

39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him gbecause of the word of the woman who testified, “He told me all that I ever did.”
40 So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they urged Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
41 And many more believed because of His own hword.
42 Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for iwe ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed 1the Christ, the Savior of the world.”4
