2 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

2 1ON THE THIRD DAY there was a wedding at Cana-in-Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there,The Wedding at Cana Jn.2.1-12 (Cana)Καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ γάμος ἐγένετο ἐν Κανὰ τῆς Γαλιλαίας, καὶ ἦν ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ἐκεῖ·
2and Jesus and his disciples were guests also. ἐκλήθη δὲ καὶ ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν γάμον.
3The wine gave out, so Jesus's mother said to him, 'They have no wine left.' καὶ ὑστερήσαντος οἰνου λέγει ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν, Οἶνον οὐκ ἐχουσιν.
4He answered, 'Your concern, mother, is not mine. My hour has not yet come.' καὶ λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Τί ἐμοὶ καὶ σοί, γύναὶ οὐπω ἡκει ἡ ὡρα μου.
5His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you.' λέγει ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ τοῖς διακόνοις, Ὅ τι ἂν λέγῃ ὑμῖν ποιήσατε.
6There were six stone water-jars standing near, of the kind used for Jewish rites of purification; each held from twenty to thirty gallons. ἦσαν δὲ ἐκεῖ λίθιναι ὑδρίαι ἓξ κατὰ τὸν καθαρισμὸν τῶν Ἰουδαίων κείμεναι, χωροῦσαι ἀνὰ μετρητὰς δύο ἢ τρεῖς.
7Jesus said to the servants, 'Fill the jars with water', and they filled them to the brim. λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Γεμίσατε τὰς ὑδρίας ὑδατος. καὶ ἐγέμισαν αὐτὰς ἑως ἀνω.
8'Now draw some off', he ordered, 'and take it to the steward of the feast'; and they did so. καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς, Ἀντλήσατε νῦν καὶ φέρετε τῷ ἀρχιτρικλίνῳ· οἱ δὲ ἠνεγκαν.
9The steward tasted the water now turned into wine, not knowing its source; though the servants who had drawn the water knew. He hailed the bridegroom ὡς δὲ ἐγεύσατο ὁ ἀρχιτρίκλινος τὸ ὑδωρ οἶνον γεγενημένον, καὶ οὐκ ᾐδει πόθεν ἐστίν, οἱ δὲ διάκονοι ᾐδεισαν οἱ ἠντληκότες τὸ ὑδωρ, φωνεῖ τὸν νυμφίον ὁ ἀρχιτρίκλινος (10) καὶ λέγει αὐτῷ,
10and said, 'Everyone serves the best wine first, and waits until the guests have drunk freely before serving the poorer sort; but you have kept the best wine till now.'
 Πᾶς ἄνθρωπος πρῶτον τὸν καλὸν οἶνον τίθησιν, καὶ ὁταν μεθυσθῶσιν τὸν ἐλάσσω· σὺ τετήρηκας τὸν καλὸν οἶνον ἑως ἀρτι.
11This deed at Cana-in-Galilee is the first of the signs by which Jesus revealed his glory and led his disciples to believe in him.
 Ταύτην ἐποίησεν ἀρχὴν τῶν σημείων ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐν Κανὰ τῆς Γαλιλαίας καὶ ἐφανέρωσεν τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπίστευσαν εἰς αὐτὸν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ.
12AFTER THIS he went down to Capernaum in company with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples, but they did not stay there long. Μετὰ τοῦτο κατέβη εἰς Καφαρναοὺμ αὐτὸς καὶ ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἐμειναν οὐ πολλὰς ἡμέρας.
