2:4

2:5
His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
2:6

2:8
And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

2:10
And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.
2:11

2:14
And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
2:15
And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
2:16
And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
2:17
