John, iv. I When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than

John;

2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples ;) 3 He left Judæa, and departed again into Galilee. 4 And he must needs go through Samaria.

5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
