And herein is that saying true, One sows, and another reaps.
ContextThe Disciples Return and Marvel
27And on this came his disciples, and marveled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seek you? or, Why talk you with her? 28The woman then left her water pot, and went her way into the city, and said to the men, 29Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? 30Then they went out of the city, and came to him. 31In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. 32But he said to them, I have meat to eat that you know not of. 33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Has any man brought him ought to eat? 34Jesus said to them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. 35Say not you, There are yet four months, and then comes harvest? behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. 36And he that reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit to life eternal: that both he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together. 37And herein is that saying true, One sows, and another reaps. 38I sent you to reap that where on you bestowed no labor: other men labored, and you are entered into their labors.
