4:1 Therfor as Jhesu knew, that the Farisees herden, that Jhesu makith and baptisith mo disciplis than Joon,
4:2 thouy Jhesus baptiside not, but hise disciplis, he lefte Judee,
4:3 and wente ayen in to Galilee.
4:4 And it bihofte hym to passe bi Samarie.
4:5 Therfor Jhesus cam in to a citee of Samarie, that is seid Sicar, bisidis the place, that Jacob yaf to Joseph, his sone.
4:6 And the welle of Jacob was there; and Jhesus was weri of the iourney, and sat thus vpon the welle. And the our was, as it were the sixte.
4:7 And a womman cam fro Samarie, to drawe watir. And Jhesus seith to hir, Yyue me drynk.
4:8 And hise disciplis weren gon in to the citee, to bie mete.
4:9 Therfor thilke womman of Samarie seith to him, Hou thou, `whanne thou art a Jewe, axist of me drynk, that am a womman of Samarie? for Jewis vsiden not to dele with Samaritans.
4:10 Jhesus answerde, and seide to hir, If thou wistist the yifte of God, and who `he is, that seith to thee, Yyue me drynk, thou perauenture woldist haue axid of hym, and he schulde haue youun to thee quyk watir.

4:12 Whethir thou art grettere than oure fadir Jacob, that yaf to vs the pit? and he drank therof, and hise sones, and hise beestis.
4:13 Jhesus answerde, and seide to hir, Eche man that drynkith of this watir, schal thirste efte soone; but he that drynkith of the watir that Y schal yyue hym, schal not thirste with outen ende; but the watir that Y schal yyue hym,
4:14 schal be maad in hym a welle `of watir, spryngynge vp in to euerlastynge lijf.
4:15 The womman seith to hym, Sire, yyue me this watir, that Y thirste not, nether come hidur to drawe.
4:16 Jhesus seith to hir, Go, clepe thin hosebonde, and come hidir.
4:17 The womman answerde, and seide, Y haue noon hosebonde. Jhesus seith to hir, Thou seidist wel, That Y haue noon hosebonde;
4:18 for thou hast hadde fyue hosebondis, and he that thou hast, is not thin hosebonde. This thing thou seidist sotheli.
4:19 The womman seith to hym, Lord, Y se, that thou art a prophete.
4:20 Oure fadris worschipiden in this hil, and ye seien, that at Jerusalem is a place, where it bihoueth to worschipe.
4:21 Jhesus seith to hir, Womman, bileue thou to me, for the our schal come, whanne nether in this hil, nethir in Jerusalem, ye schulen worschipe the fadir.
4:22 Ye worschipen that ye knowen not; we worschipen that that we knowen; for helthe is of the Jewis.
4:23 But the tyme is comun, and now it is, whanne trewe worschiperis schulen worschipe the fadir in spirit and treuthe; for also the fadir sekith suche, that worschipen hym.

4:25 The womman seith to hym, Y woot that Messias is comun, that is seid Crist; therfor whanne he cometh, he schal telle vs alle thingis.
4:26 Jhesus seith to hir, Y am he, that spekith with thee.
4:27 And anoon hise disciplis camen, and wondriden, that he spak with the womman; netheles no man seide to hym, What sekist thou, or, What spekist thou with hir?
4:28 Therfor the womman lefte hir watir pot, and wente in to the citee, and seide to tho men,
4:29 Come ye, and se ye a man, that seide to me alle thingis that Y haue don; whether he be Crist?
4:30 And thei wenten out of the citee, and camen to hym.
4:31 In the mene while hise disciplis preieden hym, and seiden, Maistir, ete.
4:32 But he seide to hem, Y haue mete to ete, that ye knowen not.
4:33 Therfor disciplis seiden togidir, Whether ony man hath brouyt him mete to ete?
4:34 Jhesus seith to hem, My mete is, that Y do the wille of hym that sente me, that Y perfourme the werk of hym.
4:35 Whether ye seien not, that yit foure monethis ben, and rype corn cometh? Lo! Y seie to you, lifte vp youre iyen, and se ye the feeldis, for now thei ben white to repe.
4:36 And he that repith takith hire, and gaderith fruyt in to euerlastynge lijf; that bothe he that sowith, and he that repith, haue ioye togidere.
4:37 In this thing is the word trewe, for anothir is that sowith, and anothir that repith.
4:38 Y sente you to repe, that that ye `haue not trauelid; `othere men han trauelid, and ye han entrid `in to her trauels.
4:39 And of that citee many Samaritans bileueden in hym, for the word of the womman, that bare witnessyng, That he seide to me alle thingis that Y haue don.
