John 2 (JSV - Joel Standard Version)

Another translation attempt. Check here, here, and here for info on my translation procedures.

And on the third day a wedding came to be in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. But Jesus and the disciples of him were invited to the wedding. And lacking wine, the mother of Jesus said to him, “Wine, they do not have.”

And Jesus said to her, “What with me and you, woman? Not yet is here, the hour of me.”

The mother of him said to the servants, “Anything which he may say to you, you do.”

But there were there stone water pots from the purification of the Jews, containing each two or three gallons. Jesus said to them, “Fill the water pots of water,” and they filled them to the brim.

And he said to them, “Now draw out and carry to the headwaiter.”

So they carried. But when he tasted – the headwaiter – the water to wine it became, and he had not known from where it is, but the servants had known, the ones having drawn the water.

The headwaiter called the bridegroom and he said to him, “Every man, first the good wine he sets out, and when they drank much, the poorer. You have kept the good wine until now.”

This he did, the beginning of the signs of Jesus, in Cana of Galilee, and he manifested the glory of him, and they believed in him, the disciples of him.

After this he went down into Capernaum, he and the mother of him and the brothers and the disciples of him, and there they remained not many days.

And near was the Passover of the Jews, and Jesus went up into Jerusalem.

And he found in the temple those selling oxen and sheep and doves and those changing money seated, and having made a scourge from cords, he drove all out from the temple, and the sheep and the oxen and the money changers. He poured out the coins, and the tables he overturned, and to those selling doves, he said, “Take these things from here, do not make the house of the Father of me a house of merchandise.”

They remembered – the disciples of him – that it is written, “The zeal of the house of you will be consuming me.”

Then the Jews answered and said to him, “What sign do you show to us that these things to do?”

Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it.”

Then the Jews said, “Forty and six years it was being built, this temple, and you in three days will raise it?”

But that he said about the temple of the body of him.

When, therefore, he was raised from the dead, they remembered – the disciples of him – that this he said, and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus said.

But when he was in Jerusalem in the Passover feast, many believed in the name of him, seeing the miracles which he did. But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men, and because he did not have a need that anyone may testify about man, for he knew what was in man.
