went into Galilee. For Jesus himself testified, that a Prophet hath no Honour in his own Country. Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans received him, having seen all the Things that he did at Jerusalem at the Feast, for they also went unto the Feast. So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the Water Wine. And there was a certain NOBLEMAN, whose Son was fick at Capernaum. When he heard that Fesus was come out of Judea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down and HEAL bis Son : for he was at the Point of Death. Then said Fesus unto him, Except ye fee Signs and Wonders, ye will not BELIEVE. The Nobleman faith unto him, Sir, come down ere my Child die. Jesus faith unto him, Go thy way, thy Son liveth. And the Man BELIEVED the WORD



that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his Servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy Son liveth. Then inquired he of them the Hour when he began to amend : 'And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh Hour the FEVER left him. So the Father knew that it was at the same Hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy Son LivETH; and himself BELIEVED, and his whole House. This is again the second Miracle that Jesus did when he was come out of Judea into Galilee.
