John 6 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)
6 After meta this houtos Jesus Iēsous went aperchomai to · ho the other peran side of the ho Sea thalassa of ho Galilee Galilaia (also called the Sea of ho Tiberias Tiberias). 2 A large polys crowd ochlos was following akoloutheō · de him autos because hoti they saw theōreō the ho miraculous signs sēmeion that hos he was performing poieō on epi those ho who were sick astheneō. 3 Jesus Iēsous went anerchomai up · de on eis the ho mountainside oros, and kai he sat down kathēmai there ekei with meta · ho his autos disciples mathētēs. 4 ( Now de the ho Passover pascha, the ho great festival heortē of the ho Jews Ioudaios, was eimi at hand engys.) 5 When Jesus Iēsous lifted epairō up his ho eyes ophthalmos · ho and kai saw theaomai that hoti a large polys crowd ochlos was coming erchomai toward pros him autos, he said legō to pros Philip Philippos, “ Where pothen can we buy agorazō bread artos so hina that these people houtos may eat esthiō?” 6 He said legō this houtos · de to test peirazō him autos, because gar he himself autos knew oida what tis he was about mellō to do poieō. 7 Philip Philippos answered apokrinomai him autos, · ho “ Two hundred diakosioi denarii dēnarion worth of bread artos is not ou enough arkeō for them autos, that hina each hekastos one may receive lambanō a tis little brachus.” 8 One heis of ek · ho his autos disciples mathētēs, Andrew Andreas, · ho Simon Simōn Peter’ s Petros brother adelphos, said legō to him autos, 9 “ There is eimi a little paidarion boy here hōde who hos has echō five pente barley krithinos loaves artos and kai two dyo fish opsarion, but alla what tis are eimi they houtos for eis so many tosoutos?” 10 Jesus Iēsous said legō, · ho “ Have poieō the ho people anthrōpos sit anapiptō down .” ( There was eimi · de plenty polys of grass chortos in en that ho place topos.) So oun the ho men anēr sat anapiptō down , about hōs five thousand pentakischilioi · ho in number arithmos. 11 Then oun Jesus Iēsous took lambanō the ho loaves artos, · ho and kai after he had given eucharisteō thanks , distributed diadidōmi them to those ho who were sitting anakeimai down ; and kai he did the same homoiōs with ek the ho fish opsarion, as much hosos as they wanted thelō. 12 And de when hōs the people had eaten empiplēmi their fill , he said legō to ho his autos disciples mathētēs, “ Gather synagō up the ho leftover perisseuō pieces klasma, so hina that nothing mē tis will go to waste apollymi.” 13 So oun they gathered synagō them up and kai filled gemizō twelve dōdeka baskets kophinos with broken klasma pieces of ek the ho five pente barley krithinos loaves artos · ho that hos were left perisseuō over by those ho who had eaten bibrōskō. 14 So oun when the ho people anthrōpos saw the miraculous sign sēmeion that hos Jesus had performed poieō, they began to say legō, “ This houtos is eimi truly alēthōs the ho prophet prophētēs who ho was to come erchomai into eis the ho world kosmos.” 15 Therefore oun when Jesus Iēsous realized ginōskō that hoti they were about mellō to come erchomai and kai take harpazō him autos by force to hina make poieō him king basileus, he autos withdrew anachōreō again palin up eis the ho mountainside oros alone monos.
16 Now de when hōs evening opsia had come ginomai, his autos disciples mathētēs went katabainō down · ho to epi the ho lake thalassa, 17 · kai got embainō into eis a boat ploion and started erchomai across peran the ho sea thalassa to eis Capernaum Kapharnaoum. · kai It had ginomai by then ēdē become ginomai dark skotia, and kai Jesus Iēsous had not oupō yet come erchomai to pros them autos. · ho 18 The ho sea thalassa was getting rough diegeirō because a strong megas wind anemos had started to blow pneō. 19 When they had rowed elaunō about hōs three or four miles stadion, they saw theōreō · ho Jesus Iēsous walking peripateō on epi the ho lake thalassa and kai coming ginomai near engys the ho boat ploion, and kai they were terrified phobeomai. 20 But de he ho said legō to them autos, “ It is eimi I egō; do not mē be afraid phobeomai.” 21 Then oun they were glad thelō to take lambanō him autos into eis the ho boat ploion, and kai at once eutheōs the ho boat ploion reached ginomai the ho shore gē toward eis which hos they were going hypagō.
22 On the ho next epaurion day the ho crowd ochlos · ho was standing histēmi on the other peran side of the ho lake thalassa. They knew that hoti only ei one heis boat ploiarion had been eimi there ekei, and kai that hoti Jesus Iēsous had not ou gotten syneiserchomai into eis the ho boat ploion with · ho his autos disciples mathētēs, · ho but alla that the ho disciples mathētēs had left aperchomai without monos him autos. 23 However, other allos boats ploion from ek Tiberias Tiberias had come erchomai ashore near engys the ho place topos where hopou they had eaten esthiō the ho bread artos after the ho Lord kyrios had given thanks eucharisteō. 24 So oun when hote the ho crowd ochlos realized that hoti Jesus Iēsous was eimi not ou there ekei, nor oude · ho his autos disciples mathētēs, they autos got embainō into eis the ho boats ploiarion and kai went erchomai to eis Capernaum Kapharnaoum looking zēteō for · ho Jesus Iēsous.
25 And kai when they found heuriskō him autos on the other peran side of the ho lake thalassa, they said legō to him autos, “ Rabbi rhabbi, when pote did you come ginomai here hōde?” 26 Jesus Iēsous responded apokrinomai to them autos, · ho · kai saying legō, “ I tell legō you hymeis the solemn amēn truth amēn, you are not ou looking zēteō for me egō because hoti you saw miraculous sēmeion signs , but alla because hoti you ate esthiō the ho loaves artos and kai had all you wanted chortazō. 27 Do not mē work ergazomai for the ho food brōsis that ho perishes apollymi, but alla for the ho food brōsis that ho lasts menō for eis eternal aiōnios life zōē, which hos the ho Son hyios of ho Man anthrōpos will give didōmi you hymeis; for gar on him houtos God theos the ho Father patēr has set sphragizō his seal .” · ho 28 Therefore oun they said legō to pros him autos, “ What tis must we do poieō to hina carry ergazomai out the ho works ergon · ho God theos requires?” 29 Jesus Iēsous answered apokrinomai, · ho · kai saying legō to them autos, “ This houtos is eimi the ho work ergon that ho God theos requires, that hina you believe pisteuō in eis him whom hos he ekeinos has sent apostellō.” 30 Then oun they said legō to him autos, “ So oun what tis miraculous sign sēmeion will you sy perform poieō that hina we may see it and kai believe pisteuō in you sy? What tis will you do ergazomai? 31 · ho Our hēmeis fathers patēr ate esthiō · ho manna manna in en the ho wilderness erēmos; as kathōs it is eimi written graphō, ‘ He gave didōmi them autos bread artos from ek · ho heaven ouranos to eat esthiō.’” 32 Jesus Iēsous said legō to them autos, · ho “ I tell legō you hymeis the solemn amēn truth amēn, it was not ou Moses Mōysēs who gave didōmi you hymeis the ho bread artos from ek · ho heaven ouranos, but alla it is · ho my egō Father patēr who gives didōmi you hymeis the ho true alēthinos bread artos from ek · ho heaven ouranos. · ho 33 For gar the ho bread artos of ho God theos is eimi that ho which comes katabainō down from ek · ho heaven ouranos and kai gives didōmi life zōē to the ho world kosmos.” 34 So oun they said legō to pros him autos, “ Sir kyrios, give didōmi us hēmeis this houtos bread artos from now pantote on !” · ho
35 Jesus Iēsous said legō to them autos, · ho “ I egō am eimi the ho bread artos of ho life zōē; the ho one who comes erchomai to pros me egō will never ou mē go hungry peinaō, and kai the ho one who believes pisteuō in eis me egō will never ou mē be thirsty dipsaō again pōpote. 36 But alla as I told legō you hymeis, · kai you have seen horaō me egō and kai still you do not ou believe pisteuō. 37 All pas that hos the ho Father patēr gives didōmi me egō will come hēkō to pros me egō, and kai anyone ho who comes erchomai to pros me egō I will never ou mē turn ekballō away exō. 38 For hoti I have come katabainō down from apo · ho heaven ouranos, not ou to hina do poieō · ho my own emos will thelēma · ho but alla to do the ho will thelēma of ho him who sent pempō me egō. 39 And de this houtos is eimi the ho will thelēma of the ho one who sent pempō me egō: that hina of all pas that hos he has given didōmi me egō I should lose apollymi none mē but alla raise anistēmi them autos up on en the ho last eschatos day hēmera. 40 For gar this houtos is eimi the ho will thelēma of ho my egō Father patēr, that hina everyone pas who ho considers theōreō the ho Son hyios and kai comes to believe pisteuō in eis him autos should have echō eternal aiōnios life zōē, and kai I egō will raise anistēmi him autos up on en the ho last eschatos day hēmera.”
41 Then oun the ho Jews Ioudaios began to grumble gongyzō about peri him autos because hoti he said legō, “ I egō am eimi the ho bread artos that ho came katabainō down from ek · ho heaven ouranos.” 42 And kai they were saying legō, “ Is eimi this houtos not ou Jesus Iēsous, the ho son hyios of Joseph Iōsēph, whose hos father patēr and kai mother mētēr we hēmeis know oida? · ho · ho How pōs can he now nyn say legō, ‘ I have come down katabainō from ek · ho heaven ouranos’?” 43 Jesus Iēsous answered apokrinomai · kai them autos, saying legō, “ Do not mē keep grumbling gongyzō among meta yourselves allēlōn. 44 No oudeis one can dynamai come erchomai to pros me egō unless ean mē the ho Father patēr who ho sent pempō me egō draws him autos; and I kagō will raise anistēmi him autos up on en the ho last eschatos day hēmera. 45 It stands eimi written graphō in en the ho prophets prophētēs, ‘ And kai they will all pas be eimi taught didaktos by God theos.’ Everyone pas who ho has heard akouō the ho Father patēr and kai learned manthanō from para him comes erchomai to pros me egō. 46 Not ou that hoti anyone tis has seen horaō the ho Father patēr, except ei mē the ho one who is eimi from para · ho God theos; he houtos has seen horaō the ho Father patēr. 47 I tell legō you hymeis the solemn amēn truth amēn, the ho one who believes pisteuō has echō eternal aiōnios life zōē. 48 I egō am eimi the ho bread artos of ho life zōē. 49 · ho Your hymeis fathers patēr ate esthiō manna manna in en the ho wilderness erēmos, · ho and kai they died apothnēskō. 50 But here houtos is eimi the ho bread artos that ho comes down katabainō from ek · ho heaven ouranos, so hina that one tis may eat esthiō of ek it autos and kai not mē die apothnēskō. 51 I egō am eimi the ho living zaō bread artos · ho that ho came down katabainō from ek · ho heaven ouranos.

52 Then oun the ho Jews Ioudaios began to argue machomai with pros one allēlōn another , saying legō, “ How pōs can dynamai this houtos man give didōmi us hēmeis · ho his autos flesh sarx to eat esthiō?” 53 Jesus Iēsous therefore oun said legō to them autos, · ho “ I tell legō you hymeis the solemn amēn truth amēn, unless ean mē you eat esthiō the ho flesh sarx of the ho Son hyios of ho Man anthrōpos and kai drink pinō his autos · ho blood haima, you will have echō no ou life zōē in en you heautou. 54 The ho one who feeds trōgō on my egō · ho flesh sarx and kai drinks pinō my egō · ho blood haima has echō eternal aiōnios life zōē, and I kagō will raise anistēmi him autos up on the ho last eschatos day hēmera; 55 · ho for gar my egō flesh sarx is eimi real alēthēs food brōsis and kai · ho my egō blood haima is eimi real alēthēs drink posis. 56 The ho one who eats trōgō my egō · ho flesh sarx and kai drinks pinō my egō · ho blood haima dwells menō in en me egō, and I kagō in en him autos. 57 As kathōs the ho living zaō Father patēr sent apostellō me egō, and I kagō live zaō because dia of the ho Father patēr, so kai the ho one who feeds trōgō on me egō will live zaō because dia of me egō. 58 This houtos is eimi the ho bread artos that ho came down katabainō from ek heaven ouranos; it is not ou like kathōs that which your ho fathers patēr ate esthiō and kai died apothnēskō.

60 Therefore oun, when a number polys of ek his autos disciples mathētēs heard akouō · ho it, they said legō, “ This houtos teaching logos is eimi difficult sklēros; · ho who tis can dynamai understand akouō it autos?” 61 But de Jesus Iēsous, aware oida · ho that hoti his autos disciples mathētēs were grumbling gongyzō about peri it houtos, · ho said legō to them autos, “ Does skandalizō this houtos offend skandalizō you hymeis? 62 Then oun what if ean you were to see theōreō the ho Son hyios of ho Man anthrōpos ascending anabainō to where hopou he was eimi · ho before proteros? 63 It is eimi the ho Spirit pneuma who ho gives zōiopoieō life ; the ho flesh sarx is useless ou.

John 6 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand
6 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 crowd of people followed him because they saw the signs he had performed by healing the sick. 3 Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples. 4 The Jewish Passover Festival was near.
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 He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.
7 Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages[a] to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”
8 Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, 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, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). 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 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 and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.
14 After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.” 15 Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.
Jesus Walks on the Water
16 When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, 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 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. 19 When they had rowed about three or four miles,[b] they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened. 20 But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” 21 Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.
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 Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. 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.
Jesus the Bread of Life
25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”
26 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”
29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
30 So they asked him, “What sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? 31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’[c]”
32 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, 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 the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
34 “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”
35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 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 who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them 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 them up at the last day.”
41 At this the Jews there began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that 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 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered. 44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day. 45 It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’[d] Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me. 46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. 47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
53 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. 56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. 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 from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
Many Disciples Desert Jesus
60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?”
61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit[e] and life. 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 He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.”
66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
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? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”
70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!” 71 (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)
