American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the sea of Galilee, which is [the sea] 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 a great multitude followed him, because they beheld the signs which he did on them that were sick. 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 into the mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 3 Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples.
4 Now the passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. 4 The Jewish Passover Feast was near.
5 Jesus therefore lifting up his eyes, and seeing that a great multitude cometh unto him, saith unto Philip, Whence are we to buy bread, 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 to prove him: for he himself knew what he would 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 shillings' worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one may take a 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, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, 8 Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, spoke up,
9 There is a lad here, who hath five barley loaves, and two fishes: but what are these among 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 Jesus said, Make the people sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about 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 Jesus therefore took the loaves; and having given thanks, he distributed to them that were set down; likewise also of the fishes as much as they would. 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 unto his disciples, Gather up the broken pieces which remain over, that nothing 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 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which remained over unto them that had 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 When therefore the people saw the sign which he did, they said, This is of a truth the prophet that cometh into 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 perceiving that they were about to come and take him by force, to make him king, withdrew again into 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 unto the sea; 16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake,
17 and they entered into a boat, and were going over the sea unto Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to 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 And the sea was rising by reason of a great wind that blew. 18 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.
19 When therefore they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they behold Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto 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 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. 20 But he said to them, "It is I; don't be afraid."
21 They were willing therefore to receive him into the boat: and straightway the boat was at the land whither 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 stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, save one, and that Jesus entered not with his disciples into the boat, but [that] 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 (howbeit there came boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had 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 the multitude therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they themselves got 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 when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou 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 unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled. 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 which perisheth, but for the food which abideth unto eternal life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him the Father, even God, hath sealed. 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 must 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 unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. 29 Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
30 They said therefore unto him, What then doest thou for a sign, that we may see, and believe thee? what workest thou? 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 ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, He gave them bread out of heaven 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 unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, It was not Moses that gave you the bread out of heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread out of 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 cometh down out of heaven, and giveth life unto 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, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 34 "Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."
35 Jesus said unto them. I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 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 unto you, that ye have seen me, and yet believe not. 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
37 All that which the Father giveth me shall come unto me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
38 For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that 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 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. 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 For this is the will of my Father, that every one that beholdeth the Son, and believeth on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at 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 murmured concerning him, because he said, I am the bread which came down out of 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 know? how doth he now say, I am come down out of heaven? 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 and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 43 "Stop grumbling among yourselves," Jesus answered.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me 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 written in the prophets, And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard from the Father, and hath learned, cometh unto 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 man hath seen the Father, save he that 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 unto you, He that believeth hath eternal life. 47 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
48 I am the bread of life. 48 I am the bread of life.
49 Your fathers ate 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 which cometh down out of heaven, that a man may eat thereof, 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 which came down out of heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: yea and the bread which I will give is my flesh, 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 strove one with another, saying, How can this man 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 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 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 that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath eternal life: and I will raise him up at 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 is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
56 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me, and I in him. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father; so he that eateth me, he also 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 which came down out of heaven: not as the fathers ate, and died; he that eateth this bread shall live for ever. 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 said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when the heard [this], said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it? 60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?"
61 But Jesus knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this, said unto them, Doth this cause you to stumble? 61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, "Does this offend you?
62 [What] then if ye should behold the Son of man ascending where he was before? 62 What if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before!
63 It is the spirit that giveth life; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit, are 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 some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who it was that should betray him. 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, For this cause have I said unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it be given unto him of the 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 Upon this many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
67 Jesus said therefore unto the twelve, Would ye also go away? 67 "You do not want to leave too, do you?" Jesus asked the Twelve.
68 Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
69 And we have believed and know that thou art the Holy One of 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 one of you is a devil? 70 Then Jesus replied, "Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!"
71 Now he spake of Judas [the son] of Simon Iscariot, for he it was that should betray him, [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.)
