6 After these things Jesus went away across the sea of Galilee, that is of Tiberias;
2 and there was following him a great multitude, because they had been viewing the signs which he did upon such as were sick.
3 But Jesus had gone up into the mountain, and there was sitting with his disciples.
4 Now the passover was near, the feast of the Jews.
5 So then Jesus lifting up his eyes and beholding that a great multitude was coming unto him saith unto Philip—Whence are we to buy loaves, that these may eat?
6 But this he was saying to test him; for he himself knew what he was about to do.
7 Philip answered him—Two hundred denaries-worth of loaves are not sufficient for them, that each one may take a little.
8 One from among his disciples, Andrew the brother of Simon Peter, saith unto him—
9 There is a little lad here, that hath five barley loaves and two small fishes,—But these—what are they for such numbers?
10 Jesus said—Make the people recline. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men reclined, to the number of about five thousand.
11 Jesus therefore took the loaves, and giving thanks went on distributing unto them that reclined; in like manner of the small fishes also: as much as they were wishing.
12 And when they were well-filled he saith unto his disciples—Gather up the broken pieces left over, that nothing be lost.
13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces out of the five barley loaves,—which were left over by them who had eaten.
14 The people therefore seeing what signs he wrought began to say—This is of a truth the prophet who was to come into the world.
15 Jesus therefore getting to know that they were about to come and seize him, that they might make him king retired again into the mountain himself alone.
16 But when evening came his disciples went down unto the sea;
17 and entering into a boat were going across the sea into Capernaum. And dark already had it become, and not yet had Jesus reached them;
18 moreover the sea by reason of a great wind that blew was rising high.
19 Having therefore rowed about twenty-five or thirty furlongs they observe Jesus walking upon the sea, and near the boat coming; and they were affrighted.
20 But he saith unto them—It is I: be not affrighted!
21 They were willing therefore to receive him into the boat; and straightway the boat was at land whither they had been slowly going.
22 On the morrow the multitude that was standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was not another small-boat there save one,—and that Jesus entered not along with his disciples into the boat, but that alone his disciples departed:—
23 howbeit there came boats out of Tiberias, near the place where they did eat the bread after the Lord had given thanks:—
24 When therefore the multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor yet his disciples they themselves got into the small boats, and came unto Capernaum seeking Jesus;
25 and finding him on the other side of the sea they said unto him—Rabbi! when camest thou hither?
26 Jesus answered them and said—Verily, verily I say unto you: Ye seek me Not because ye saw signs, But because ye did eat of the loaves and were filled.
27 Be working Not for the food that perisheth, But for the food that endureth unto life age-abiding,—Which the Son of Man unto you will give; For upon the same hath the Father even God set his seal.
28 They said therefore unto him—What are we to do, that we may be working the works of God?
29 Jesus answered and said unto them—This is the work of God: That ye believe on him whom he hath sent forth.
30 They said therefore unto him—What then art thou doing by way of sign, That we may see and believe in thee: What art thou working?
31 Our fathers did eat the manna in the desert,—Just as it is written: Bread out of heaven he gave them to eat.
32 Jesus said unto them—Verily, verily I say unto you: Not Moses gave you the bread out of heaven; But my Father giveth you the real bread out of heaven.
33 For the bread of God is That which is coming down out of heaven, And giving life unto the world.
34 They said therefore unto him—Sir! evermore give us this bread.
35 Jesus said unto them—I am the bread of life: He that cometh unto me in nowise shall hunger, And he that believeth on me in nowise shall thirst any more.
36 But I told you—Ye have even seen [me] And yet do not believe.
37 All that which the Father is giving me Unto me will have come, And him that cometh unto me In nowise will I cast out,—
38 Because I have come down from heaven,—Not that I should be doing my own will, But the will of him that sent me.
39 And this is the will of him that sent me, That of all that which he hath given me I should lose nothing, But should raise it up at the last day.
40 For this is the will of my Father, That every one that vieweth the Son and believeth on him Should have life age-abiding, And I should raise him up at the last day.
41 The Jews therefore began to murmur concerning him, because he said—I am the bread that came down out of heaven;
42 and were saying—Is not this Jesus the son of Joseph,—Of whom we know the father and the mother! How is it then that he now saith: Out of heaven have I come down?
43 Jesus answered and said unto them—Be not murmuring one with another:
44 No one can come unto me, except the Father who sent me draw him,—And I will raise him up in the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets,—And they shall be all the instructed of God: Every one who hath heard of the Father and learned Cometh unto me.
46 Not that any one hath seen the Father, Save he who is from God,—This one hath seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily I say unto you: He that believeth hath life age-abiding.
48 I am the bread of life:—
49 Your fathers did eat in the desert the manna,—And died:
50 This is the bread which out of heaven cometh down, That one thereof may eat,—And not die.
51 I am the living bread which out of heaven came down: If one eat of this bread He shall live unto times age-abiding; And the bread moreover which I will give Is my flesh—for the world’s life.
52 The Jews therefore began to strive one with another, saying—How can this one unto us give his flesh to eat?
53 Jesus therefore said unto them—Verily, verily I say unto you—Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man And drink his blood Ye have not life within yourselves.
54 He that feedeth upon my flesh And drinketh my blood Hath life age-abiding, And I will raise him up at the last day;
55 For my flesh is true food, And my blood is true drink:
56 He that feedeth upon my flesh And drinketh my blood In me abideth, And I in him.
57 Just as the living Father sent me,—And I live by reason of the Father He also that feedeth upon me Even he shall live by reason of me.
58 This is the bread which out of heaven came down:—Not just as your fathers did eat—and died! He that feedeth upon this bread Shall live unto times age-abiding.
59 These things said he as in a synagogue he was teaching, in Capernaum.
60 Many of his disciples therefore when they heard said—Hard is this discourse,—Who can thereunto hearken?
61 But Jesus knowing within himself that his disciples were murmuring concerning this said unto them—Doth this cause you to stumble?
62 [What] then if ye should view the Son of Man ascending where he was before? . . .
63 The spirit it is that giveth life,—The flesh profiteth nothing: The declarations which I have spoken unto you Are spirit and Are life.
64 But there are some from among you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that did not believe, and who it was would deliver him up;—
65 and he went on to say—For this cause have I said unto you: No one can come unto me, except it have been given him of the Father.
66 Because of this many from among his disciples went away back, and no longer with him were walking.
67 Jesus therefore said unto the twelve—Are ye also wishing to withdraw?
68 Simon Peter answered him—Lord! unto whom shall we go? Declarations of life age-abiding thou hast;
69 And we have believed and come to know,—That thou art the Holy One of God.
70 Jesus answered them—Did not I make choice of you the twelve? And yet from among you one is an adversary.
71 Now he was speaking of Judas son of Simon Iscariot: for the same was about to deliver him up,—one of the twelve.
