(Koine Greek)

λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς , Πίστευέ μοι , γύναι, ὅτι ἔρχεται ὥρα  , ὅτε οὔτε ἐν τῷ ὄρει τούτῳ , οὔτε ἐν Ἱεροσολύμοις , προσκυνήσετε τῷ Πατρί  .

(Raw word-translation)
Says to her  –  Jesus believe me Woman that is coming an hour when neither on the mountain this nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father

<<v 22>>

hymeis proskyneite ho ouk oidate hēmeis proskynoumen ho oidamen hoti sōtēria ek tōn Ioudaiōn estin

ὑμεῖς προσκυνεῖτε ὃ οὐκ οἴδατε; ἡμεῖς προσκυνοῦμεν ὃ οἴδαμεν; ὅτι ἡ σωτηρία ἐκ τῶν Ἰουδαίων ἐστίν  .

You worship what not you know we worship what we know for –  salvation of the Jews is

<<v 23>>

alla erchetai hōra kai nyn estin hote hoi alēthinoi proskynētai proskynēsousin Patri en pneumati kai alētheia kai gar ho Patēr toioutous zētei tous proskynountas auton

ἀλλὰ ἔρχεται ὥρα καὶ νῦν ἐστιν , ὅτε οἱ ἀληθινοὶ προσκυνηταὶ προσκυνήσουσιν τῷ Πατρὶ ἐν πνεύματι καὶ ἀληθείᾳ; καὶ γὰρ ὁ Πατὴρ τοιούτους ζητεῖ, τοὺς προσκυνοῦντας αὐτόν.

But is coming an hour and now is when the TRUE worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth also indeed the Father such seeks who worship him

<<v 24>>

Pneuma ho Theos kai tous proskynountas auton en pneumati kai alētheia dei proskynein

Πνεῦμα ὁ Θεός ,καὶ τοὺς προσκυνοῦντας ‹αὐτὸν› ἐν πνεύματι καὶ ἀληθείᾳ δεῖ προσκυνεῖν

Spirit God [is]  and those worshipping     him in  [the] spirit and [the] truth it behoves to worship

λέγει αὐτῷ ἡ γυνή, Οἶδα ὅτι Μεσσίας ἔρχεται, ὁ λεγόμενος Χριστός ; ὅταν ἔλθῃ ἐκεῖνος , ἀναγγελεῖ ἡμῖν ἅπαντα .

Says to him the woman I know that Messiah is coming who is called Christ when comes he he will tell us all things

<<v 26>>

λέγει αὐτῇ ὁ Ἰησοῦς , Ἐγώ εἰμι , ὁ λαλῶν σοι  .

Says to her  –  Jesus I am [he] who am speaking to you

John 4: 21-26 NIV

21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”

26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”


…hope this helps and informs the future discussions on John Chapter 4 and exploring where ‘True Worshippers’ draw their strength and character…
