And [on] the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
ἐκλήθη δὲ καὶ ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν γάμον.
Now both Jesus and his disciples were invited to the wedding.
καὶ ὑστερήσαντος οἴνου λέγει ἡ μήτηρ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν• οἶνον οὐκ ἔχουσιν.
And when the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine."

My hour has not yet come."

Now there were six stone water jars sitting there, according to the Jewish [custom of] purification, holding two or three measures each.
