And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee,and the mother of Jesus was there.And both Jusus was called and his disciples,to the marriage.And when they wanted wine,the mother of both Jesus was called and his disciples,to the marriage. And when they wanted wine,the mother of Jesus saith unto him.They have no wine.And there were set there six waterpots of stone,after the manner of the purifying of the Jews,containing two or there firkins a piece.Jesus saith unto them fill the waterpots with water.And He saith unto them,draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast.This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee and manifested Earth his glory and his disciples believed on him.
