John 6

Whiston(i) 1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, unto the parts of Tiberias. 2 But a great multitude followed him, because they saw the miracle which he did on them that were diseased. 3 Jesus therefore went away into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 5 When Jesus then lift up [his] eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith also unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread that these may eat? 6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered him, So much bread as two hundred denarii will buy is not sufficient for them, that every one may take a little. 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peters brother, saith unto him, 9 There is a lad here, who hath five barley-loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 10 Jesus said therefore, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 Jesus therefore took the five loaves, and when he had given thanks he distributed to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes also, as much as they would. 12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing thereof may be lost. 13 But they gathered [them] together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the barley-loaves, which remained over and above, unto them that had eaten. 14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that he did, said, This is that prophet that should come into the world. 15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they were about to come and take him by force, to make [him] king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone, and there prayed. 16 And when even was come, his disciples went down unto the sea. 17 And entred into a ship, and went to the other side of the sea to Caphanaum, and darkness had already overtaken them, and Jesus was not come to them. 18 But the sea was rough, and great wind blowing. 19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty, or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. 20 But he saith unto them, It is I, be not afraid. 21 They would therefore receive him into the ship, and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went. 22 The day following, when the multitude who stood on the other side of the sea, saw that there was no other boat there, save one whereinto Jesus's own disciples were entred, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boar, but [that] his disciples were gone away alone: 23 Howbeit other boats came from Tiberias, nigh unto the place where they did eat bread. 24 When the multitude therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they took boats for themselves, and came to Caphanaum, seeking for Jesus. 25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou higher? 26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily verily I say unto you, Ye seek me; not because ye saw the signs and wonders, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto eternal life, which the Son of man giveth unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. 28 Then said they unto him, What shall we work that we may do the works of God? 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye may believe on him whom he hath sent. 30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what thou dost work? 31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily verily I say to you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he who cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 Jesus therefore said unto them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me, shall not hunger at all; and he that believeth on me, shall not thirst at all. 36 But I said unto you, that ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me, will come to me; and him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast away. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of the father that sent me. 39 And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all which he hath given me, I should lose nothing, but that I should raise it up again at the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father that sent me, that every one who seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 41 But the Jews murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. 42 And they said, It not this Jesus the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith that I came down from heaven? 43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among your selves. 44 No one can come to me, except the father who hast sent me, draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Everyone that heareth, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. 46 Not that any one hath seen the Father, save he who is of God, he hath seen God. 47 Verily verily I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers did eat bread and manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that if a man eat thereof, he shall not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if therefore any one shall eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: The bread that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world. 52 The Jews therefore strove amonst themselves, saying, How can he give us his flesh to eat? 53 Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily verily I say unto you, Except ye take the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth his flesh, and drinketh his blood, hath eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed. 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the father is in me, so I am in the father; Verily verily I say unto you unless ye take the body of the Son of Man as the bread of life, ye have not life in him. 57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that taketh me, even he shall live by me. 58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth this bread, shall live for ever. 59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Caphanaum on the Sabbath. 60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard it, said, This is an hard saying, who can hear it? 61 When Jesus knew that his disciples murmured at it among themselves, he said unto them, Doth this scandalize you? 62 If therefore ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? 63 It is the spirit that quickneth, the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I have spoken unto you, are spirit, are life. 64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, who they were that believed not, and who would betray him. 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no one can come unto me, except it were given unto him of the Father. 66 From this [time] many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 67 But Jesus said to the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 But Simon Peter said, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we have believed, and have known thee, that thou art the Holy One of God. 70 Jesus answered, saying, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 71 He spake of Judas Scarioth [the son] of Simon: for he was to betray him, [being] one of the twelve.
