Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 After these things Jesus went away beyond the sea of Galilee (of Tiberias), 1 Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias),
2 and there was following him a great multitude, because they were seeing his signs that he was doing on the ailing; 2 and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the miraculous signs he had performed on the sick.
3 and Jesus went up to the mount, and he was there sitting with his disciples, 3 Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples.
4 and the passover was nigh, the feast of the Jews. 4 The Jewish Passover Feast was near.
5 Jesus then having lifted up [his] eyes and having seen that a great multitude doth come to him, saith unto Philip, `Whence shall we buy loaves, that these may eat?' -- 5 When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?"
6 and this he said, trying him, for he himself had known what he was about to do. 6 He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.
7 Philip answered him, `Two hundred denaries' worth of loaves are not sufficient to them, that each of them may receive some little;' 7 Philip answered him, "Eight months' wages would not buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!"
8 one of his disciples -- Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter -- saith to him, 8 Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, spoke up,
9 `There is one little lad here who hath five barley loaves, and two fishes, but these -- what are they to so many?' 9 "Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?"
10 And Jesus said, `Make the men to sit down;' and there was much grass in the place, the men then sat down, in number, as it were, five thousand, 10 Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." There was plenty of grass in that place, and the men sat down, about five thousand of them.
11 and Jesus took the loaves, and having given thanks he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those reclining, in like manner, also of the little fishes as much as they wished. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.
12 And when they were filled, he saith to his disciples, `Gather together the broken pieces that are over, that nothing may be lost;' 12 When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, "Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted."
13 they gathered together, therefore, and filled twelve hand-baskets with broken pieces, from the five barley loaves that were over to those having eaten. 13 So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.
14 The men, then, having seen the sign that Jesus did, said -- `This is truly the Prophet, who is coming to the world;' 14 After the people saw the miraculous sign that Jesus did, they began to say, "Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world."
15 Jesus, therefore, having known that they are about to come, and to take him by force that they may make him king, retired again to the mountain himself alone. 15 Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.
16 And when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, 16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake,
17 and having entered into the boat, they were going over the sea to Capernaum, and darkness had already come, and Jesus had not come unto them, 17 where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them.
18 the sea also -- a great wind blowing -- was being raised, 18 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.
19 having pushed onwards, therefore, about twenty-five or thirty furlongs, they behold Jesus walking on the sea, and coming nigh to the boat, and they were afraid; 19 When they had rowed three or three and a half miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified.
20 and he saith to them, `I am [he], be not afraid;' 20 But he said to them, "It is I; don't be afraid."
21 they were willing then to receive him into the boat, and immediately the boat came unto the land to which they were going. 21 Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.
22 On the morrow, the multitude that was standing on the other side of the sea, having seen that there was no other little boat there except one -- that into which his disciples entered -- and that Jesus went not in with his disciples into the little boat, but his disciples went away alone, 22 The next day the crowd that had stayed on the opposite shore of the lake realized that only one boat had been there, and that Jesus had not entered it with his disciples, but that they had gone away alone.
23 (and other little boats came from Tiberias, nigh the place where they did eat the bread, the Lord having given thanks), 23 Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.
24 when therefore the multitude saw that Jesus is not there, nor his disciples, they also themselves did enter into the boats, and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus; 24 Once the crowd realized that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum in search of Jesus.
25 and having found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, `Rabbi, when hast thou come hither?' 25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, "Rabbi, when did you get here?"
26 Jesus answered them and said, `Verily, verily, I say to you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were satisfied; 26 Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.
27 work not for the food that is perishing, but for the food that is remaining to life age-during, which the Son of Man will give to you, for him did the Father seal -- [even] God.' 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval."
28 They said therefore unto him, `What may we do that we may work the works of God?' 28 Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"
29 Jesus answered and said to them, `This is the work of God, that ye may believe in him whom He did send.' 29 Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
30 They said therefore to him, `What sign, then, dost thou, that we may see and may believe thee? what dost thou work? 30 So they asked him, "What miraculous sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?
31 our fathers the manna did eat in the wilderness, according as it is having been written, Bread out of the heaven He gave them to eat.' 31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written: 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.' "
32 Jesus, therefore, said to them, `Verily, verily, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread out of the heaven; but my Father doth give you the true bread out of the heaven; 32 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.
33 for the bread of God is that which is coming down out of the heaven, and giving life to the world.' 33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."
34 They said, therefore, unto him, `Sir, always give us this bread.' 34 "Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."
35 And Jesus said to them, `I am the bread of the life; he who is coming unto me may not hunger, and he who is believing in me may not thirst -- at any time; 35 Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
36 but I said to you, that ye also have seen me, and ye believe not; 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
37 all that the Father doth give to me will come unto me; and him who is coming unto me, I may in no wise cast without, 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
38 because I have come down out of the heaven, not that I may do my will, but the will of Him who sent me. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.
39 `And this is the will of the Father who sent me, that all that He hath given to me I may not lose of it, but may raise it up in the last day; 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
40 and this is the will of Him who sent me, that every one who is beholding the Son, and is believing in him, may have life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day.' 40 For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."
41 The Jews, therefore, were murmuring at him, because he said, `I am the bread that came down out of the heaven;' 41 At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."
42 and they said, `Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we have known? how then saith this one -- Out of the heaven I have come down?' 42 They said, "Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, 'I came down from heaven'?"
43 Jesus answered, therefore, and said to them, `Murmur not one with another; 43 "Stop grumbling among yourselves," Jesus answered.
44 no one is able to come unto me, if the Father who sent me may not draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day; 44 "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
45 it is having been written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God; every one therefore who heard from the Father, and learned, cometh to me; 45 It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.
46 not that any one hath seen the Father, except he who is from God, he hath seen the Father. 46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.
47 `Verily, verily, I say to you, He who is believing in me, hath life age-during; 47 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
48 I am the bread of the life; 48 I am the bread of life.
49 your fathers did eat the manna in the wilderness, and they died; 49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.
50 this is the bread that out of the heaven is coming down, that any one may eat of it, and not die. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.
51 `I am the living bread that came down out of the heaven; if any one may eat of this bread he shall live -- to the age; and the bread also that I will give is my flesh, that I will give for the life of the world.' 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."
52 The Jews, therefore, were striving with one another, saying, `How is this one able to give us [his] flesh to eat?' 52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
53 Jesus, therefore, said to them, `Verily, verily, I say to you, If ye may not eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and may not drink his blood, ye have no life in yourselves; 53 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
54 he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, hath life age-during, and I will raise him up in the last day; 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 for my flesh truly is food, and my blood truly is drink; 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
56 he who is eating my flesh, and is drinking my blood, doth remain in me, and I in him. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
57 `According as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, he also who is eating me, even that one shall live because of me; 57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
58 this is the bread that came down out of the heaven; not as your fathers did eat the manna, and died; he who is eating this bread shall live -- to the age.' 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever."
59 These things he said in a synagogue, teaching in Capernaum; 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
60 many, therefore, of his disciples having heard, said, `This word is hard; who is able to hear it?' 60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?"
61 And Jesus having known in himself that his disciples are murmuring about this, said to them, `Doth this stumble you? 61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, "Does this offend you?
62 if then ye may behold the Son of Man going up where he was before? 62 What if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before!
63 the spirit it is that is giving life; the flesh doth not profit anything; the sayings that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life; 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.
64 but there are certain of you who do not believe;' for Jesus had known from the beginning who they are who are not believing, and who is he who will deliver him up, 64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe." For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him.
65 and he said, `Because of this I have said to you -- No one is able to come unto me, if it may not have been given him from my Father.' 65 He went on to say, "This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him."
66 From this [time] many of his disciples went away backward, and were no more walking with him, 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
67 Jesus, therefore, said to the twelve, `Do ye also wish to go away?' 67 "You do not want to leave too, do you?" Jesus asked the Twelve.
68 Simon Peter, therefore, answered him, `Sir, unto whom shall we go? thou hast sayings of life age-during; 68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
69 and we have believed, and we have known, that thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.' 69 We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."
70 Jesus answered them, `Did not I choose you -- the twelve? and of you -- one is a devil. 70 Then Jesus replied, "Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!"
71 And he spake of Judas, Simon's [son], Iscariot, for he was about to deliver him up, being one of the twelve. 71 (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)
