Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, that is 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; for they saw the tokens, that 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 Therefore Jesus went into an hill, and sat there with his disciples [and there he sat with his disciples]. 3 Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples.
4 And the pask was full nigh, a feast day of the Jews. 4 The Jewish Passover Feast was near.
5 Therefore when Jesus had lifted up his eyes, and had seen, that a great multitude came to him, he saith to Philip, Whereof shall we buy loaves, that these men 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 But he said this thing, tempting him; for he knew what he was 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 to him, The loaves of two hundred pence suffice not to them, that each man take a little what. 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 A child is here, that hath five barley loaves and two fishes; but what be 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 Therefore Jesus saith, Make them sit to the meat [Make ye men to sit at the meat]. And there was much hay in the place. And so men sat to the meat, as five thousand in number [Therefore men sat at the meat, in number as 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] five loaves, and when he had done thankings, he parted to the men that sat to the meat [he parted to men sitting at the meat], and 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 said to his disciples, Gather ye the remnants that be left [Gather ye the reliefs that be left], that they perish not. 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 And so they gathered, and filled twelve baskets of the remnant of the five barley loaves and two fishes [Therefore they gathered, and filled twelve coffins of reliefs of the five barley loaves and two fishes], that left to 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 Therefore those men, when they had seen the sign [when they had seen the token, or miracle,] that he had done, said, For this is verily the prophet, that is to come 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 And when Jesus had known, that they were to come to take him, and make him king, he flew alone again into an hill. [+Therefore when Jesus had known, that they were to come that they should snatch him, and make him king, he alone fled again into an hill.] 15 Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.
16 And when eventide was come [Soothly as even was made], his disciples went down to the sea. 16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake,
17 And they went up into a boat, and they came over the sea into Capernaum. And darknesses were made then, and Jesus was not come to them [And darknesses were now made, and Jesus had not 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 for a great wind blew, the sea rose up. 18 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.
19 Therefore when they had rowed as five and twenty furlongs or thirty, they see Jesus walking on the sea/they saw Jesus walking on the sea, and to be nigh the boat; and they dreaded. 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 said to them, I am; do not ye dread. 20 But he said to them, "It is I; don't be afraid."
21 Therefore they would take him into the boat, and at once [and anon] the boat was at the land, to which they went. 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 tother day the people, that stood over the sea, saw, that there was none other boat there but that one, and that Jesus entered not with his disciples into the boat, but his disciples alone went [but his disciples went 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 But other boats came from Tiberias beside the place, where they had eaten bread [where they ate bread], and did thankings to God. 23 Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.
24 Therefore when the people had seen, that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they went up into 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 had found him over the sea, they said to him, Rabbi, how 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 to them, and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, ye seek me, not for ye saw the miracles, but for 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 ye not (for) meat that perisheth, but that that dwelleth into everlasting life, which meat man's Son shall give to you; for God the Father hath marked him. 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 Therefore they said to him, What shall we do, that we 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 believe to him, whom he sent. 29 Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
30 Therefore they said to him, What token then doest thou, that we see, and believe to 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 manna in desert, as it is written, He gave to them bread from 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 Therefore Jesus saith to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses gave you not bread from heaven, but my Father giveth you very bread from 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 it is very bread that cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world. 33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."
34 Therefore they said to him, Lord, ever give us this bread. [Therefore they said to him, Lord, evermore give to us this bread.] 34 "Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."
35 And Jesus said to them, I am bread of life; he that cometh to me, shall not hunger; and he that believeth in 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 to you, that ye have seen me, and ye believe not. [But I said to you, for and ye have seen me, and believed not.] 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
37 All thing, that the Father giveth to me, shall come to me; and I shall not cast him out [and I shall not cast out him], that cometh to me. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
38 For I came down from heaven, not that I do my 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 the Father that sent me, that all thing that the Father gave to me, I lose not of it [I lose nought of it], but again-raise it 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 my Father that sent me, that each man that seeth the Son, and believeth in him, have everlasting life; and I shall again-raise him 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 Therefore the Jews grumbled of him, for he had said [Therefore Jews grutched of him, for he said], I am bread that came down from 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, Whether this is not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we have known. How then saith he this, That I came down from heaven [Therefore how saith he this, I came down from 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 Therefore Jesus answered, and said to them, Do not ye grumble together [Do not ye grutch together]. 43 "Stop grumbling among yourselves," Jesus answered.
44 No man may come to me, but if the Father that sent me, draw him [no but the Father that sent me, draw him]; and I shall again-raise him 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 all men shall be able to be taught of God. Each man that hath heard of the Father, and hath 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 for any man hath seen the Father, but this that is of God, 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 Soothly, soothly, I say to you, he that believeth in me, hath everlasting life. 47 I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
48 I am [the] bread of life. [I am the bread of life.] 48 I am the bread of life.
49 Your fathers ate manna in desert, and be dead. 49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.
50 This is bread coming down from heaven, that if any man [shall] eat thereof, he die not. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die.
51 I am living bread, that came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live without end. And the bread that I shall 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 Therefore the Jews chided together, and said [saying], How may this give to 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 Therefore Jesus saith to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, but ye eat the flesh of man's Son, and drink his blood, ye shall not have life in you. 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 everlasting life, and I shall again-raise him 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 is very meat, and my blood is very drink. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
57 As my Father living sent me, and I live for the Father, and he that eateth me, he shall live for 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 bread, that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers ate manna, and be dead; he that eateth this bread, shall live without end. 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 He said these things in the synagogue, teaching in Capernaum. 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
60 Therefore many of his disciples hearing [this], said, This word is hard, who may hear it? 60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?"
61 But Jesus witting at himself, that his disciples grumbled of this thing [Forsooth Jesus witting with himself, for his disciples grutched of this thing], said to them, This thing offendeth you? 61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, "Does this offend you?
62 Therefore if ye [shall] see man's Son ascending [up], 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 quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing; the words that I have spoken to you, be spirit and 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 be some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, which were believing, and who was to 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, Therefore I said to you, that no man may come to me, but it were given to him of 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 aback, and went not now with him. 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
67 Therefore Jesus said to the twelve, Whether ye will also go away? 67 "You do not want to leave too, do you?" Jesus asked the Twelve.
68 And Simon Peter answered to him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast words of everlasting life; 68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
69 and we believe, and have known [and we have believed, and know], that thou art Christ, the Son of God. 69 We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."
70 Therefore Jesus answered to them, Whether I chose not you twelve, and one of you is a fiend [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 And he said this of Judas of Simon Iscariot, for this was to betray him, when he was one of the twelve. 71 (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)
