"Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."1235
Then Jesus declared, "I am13 the bread of life.14 He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes15 in me will never be thirsty.1636But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.37All that the Father gives me17 will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
