“And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:20 A new cruse - That there might be no legal pollution in it which might offend God, and hinder his miraculous operation. Put salt - A most improper remedy; for salt naturally makes waters brackish, and lands barren. Hereby therefore he would shew, that this was effected solely by the Divine power, which could work either without means, or against them.
