6 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

22On the next day the people who remained on the other side of the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone.Jesus the Bread of Life Jn.6.22-59 (Capernaum)Τῇ ἐπαύριον ὁ ὀχλος ὁ ἑστηκὼς πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης εἶδον ὅτι πλοιάριον ἀλλο οὐκ ἦν ἐκεῖ εἰ μὴ ἑν, καὶ ὅτι οὐ συνεισῆλθεν τοῖς μαθηταῖς αὐτοῦ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἰς τὸ πλοῖον ἀλλὰ μόνοι οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἀπῆλθον·
23However, boats from Tiber'i-as came near the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks. ἀλλα ἦλθεν πλοιάρια ἐκ Τιβεριάδος ἐγγὺς τοῦ τόπου ὁπου ἐφαγον τὸν ἀρτον εὐχαριστήσαντος τοῦ κυρίου.
24So when the people saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they themselves got into the boats and went to Caper'na-um, seeking Jesus. ὅτε οὖν εἶδεν ὁ ὀχλος ὅτι Ἰησοῦς οὐκ ἐστιν ἐκεῖ οὐδὲ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ, ἐνέβησαν αὐτοὶ εἰς τὰ πλοιάρια καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Καφαρναοὺμ ζητοῦντες τὸν Ἰησοῦν.
25When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, "Rabbi, when did you come here?" καὶ εὑρόντες αὐτὸν πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης εἶπον αὐτῷ, Ῥαββί, πότε ὧδε γέγονας;
26Jesus answered them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ εἶπεν, Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ζητεῖτέ με οὐχ ὅτι εἰδετε σημεῖα ἀλλ' ὅτι ἐφάγετε ἐκ τῶν ἀρτων καὶ ἐχορτάσθητε.
27Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you; for on him has God the Father set his seal." ἐργάζεσθε μὴ τὴν βρῶσιν τὴν ἀπολλυμένην ἀλλὰ τὴν βρῶσιν τὴν μένουσαν εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον, ἣν ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ὑμῖν δώσει· τοῦτον γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ ἐσφράγισεν ὁ θεός.
28Then they said to him, "What must we do, to be doing the works of God?" εἶπον οὖν πρὸς αὐτόν, Τί ποιῶμεν ἵνα ἐργαζώμεθα τὰ ἐργα τοῦ θεοῦ;
29Jesus answered them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent." ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Τοῦτό ἐστιν τὸ ἐργον τοῦ θεοῦ, ἵνα πιστεύητε εἰς ὃν ἀπέστειλεν ἐκεῖνος.
30So they said to him, "Then what sign do you do, that we may see, and believe you? What work do you perform? εἶπον οὖν αὐτῷ, Τί οὖν ποιεῖς σὺ σημεῖον, ἵνα ἰδωμεν καὶ πιστεύσωμέν σοὶ τί ἐργάζῃ;
31Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'"- Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness - as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven Jn.6.31 | Ex.16.13-14 | Ps.78.24οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν τὸ μάννα ἐφαγον ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, καθώς ἐστιν γεγραμμένον, Ἄρτον ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς φαγεῖν.
32Jesus then said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. εἶπεν οὖν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, οὐ Μωϋσῆς δέδωκεν ὑμῖν τὸν ἀρτον ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, ἀλλ' ὁ πατήρ μου δίδωσιν ὑμῖν τὸν ἀρτον ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τὸν ἀλη θινόν·
33For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world." ὁ γὰρ ἀρτος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστιν ὁ καταβαίνων ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ζωὴν διδοὺς τῷ κόσμῳ.
34They said to him, "Lord, give us this bread always." Εἶπον οὖν πρὸς αὐτόν, Κύριε, πάντοτε δὸς ἡμῖν τὸν ἀρτον τοῦτον.
35Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst. εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀρτος τῆς ζωῆς· ὁ ἐρχόμενος πρός ἐμὲ οὐ μὴ πεινάσῃ, καὶ ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ οὐ μὴ διψήσει πώποτε.
36But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. ἀλλ' εἶπον ὑμῖν ὅτι καὶ ἑωράκατέ με καὶ οὐ πιστεύετε.
37All that the Father gives me will come to me; and him who comes to me I will not cast out. Πᾶν ὃ δίδωσίν μοι ὁ πατὴρ πρὸς ἐμὲ ἡξει, καὶ τὸν ἐρχόμενον πρὸς ἐμὲ οὐ μὴ ἐκβάλω ἐξω,
38For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me; ὁτι καταβέβηκα ἀπὸ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐχ ἵνα ποιῶ τὸ θέλημα τὸ ἐμὸν ἀλλὰ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πέμψαντός με·
39and this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up at the last day. τοῦτο δέ ἐστιν τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πέμψαντός με, ἵνα πᾶν ὃ δέδωκέν μοι μὴ ἀπολέσω ἐξ αὐτοῦ ἀλλὰ ἀναστήσω αὐτὸ ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ.
40For this is the will of my Father, that every one who sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day." τοῦτο γάρ ἐστιν τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πατρός μου, ἵνα πᾶς ὁ θεωρῶν τὸν υἱὸν καὶ πιστεύων εἰς αὐτὸν ἐχῃ ζωὴν αἰώνιον, καὶ ἀναστήσω αὐτὸν ἐγὼ ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ.
41The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, "I am the bread which came down from heaven." Ἐγόγγυζον οὖν οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι περὶ αὐτοῦ ὅτι εἶπεν, Ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀρτος ὁ καταβὰς ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ,
42They said, "Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, 'I have come down from heaven'?" καὶ ἐλεγον, Οὐχ οὗτός ἐστιν Ἰησοῦς ὁ υἱὸς Ἰωσήφ, οὗ ἡμεῖς οἰδαμεν τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὴν μητέρὰ πῶς νῦν λέγει ὅτι Ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταβέβηκὰ;
43Jesus answered them, "Do not murmur among yourselves. ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Μὴ γογγύζετε μετ' ἀλλήλων.
44No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. οὐδεὶς δύναται ἐλθεῖν πρός με ἐὰν μὴ ὁ πατὴρ ὁ πέμψας με ἑλκύσῃ αὐτόν, κἀγὼ ἀναστήσω αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ.
45It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me.- And they shall all be taught by God Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Jn.6.45 | Is.54.13 | Jr.31.33ἐστιν γεγραμμένον ἐν τοῖς προφήταις, Καὶ ἔσονται πάντες διδακτοὶ θεοῦ· πᾶς ὁ ἀκούσας παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς καὶ μαθὼν ἐρχεται πρὸς ἐμέ.
46Not that any one has seen the Father except him who is from God; he has seen the Father. οὐχ ὅτι τὸν πατέρα ἑώρακέν τις εἰ μὴ ὁ ὢν παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ, οὗτος ἑώρακεν τὸν πατέρα.
47Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ὁ πιστεύων ἐχει ζωὴν αἰώνιον.
48I am the bread of life. ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀρτος τῆς ζωῆς.
49Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν ἐφαγον ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τὸ μάννα καὶ ἀπέθανον·
50This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ ἀρτος ὁ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταβαίνων ἵνα τις ἐξ αὐτοῦ φάγῃ καὶ μὴ ἀποθάνῃ.
51I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh." ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀρτος ὁ ζῶν ὁ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταβάς· ἐάν τις φάγῃ ἐκ τούτου τοῦ ἀρτου ζήσει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα· καὶ ὁ ἀρτος δὲ ὃν ἐγὼ δώσω ἡ σάρξ μού ἐστιν ὑπὲρ τῆς το ῦ κόσμου ζωῆς.
52The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" Ἐμάχοντο οὖν πρὸς ἀλλήλους οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι λέγοντες, Πῶς δύναται οὗτος ἡμῖν δοῦναι τὴν σάρκα αὐτοῦ φαγεῖν;
53So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; εἶπεν οὖν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν μὴ φάγητε τὴν σάρκα τοῦ υἱοῦ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου καὶ πίητε αὐτοῦ τὸ αἷμα, οὐκ ἐχετε ζωὴν ἐν ἑαυτοῖς.
54he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. ὁ τρώγων μου τὴν σάρκα καὶ πίνων μου τὸ αἷμα ἐχει ζωὴν αἰώνιον, κἀγὼ ἀναστήσω αὐτὸν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ·
55For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. ἡ γὰρ σάρξ μου ἀληθής ἐστιν βρῶσις, καὶ τὸ αἷμά μου ἀληθής ἐστιν πόσις.
56He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. ὁ τρώγων μου τὴν σάρκα καὶ πίνων μου τὸ αἷμα ἐν ἐμοὶ μένει κἀγὼ ἐν αὐτῷ.
57As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me. καθὼς ἀπέστειλέν με ὁ ζῶν πατὴρ κἀγὼ ζῶ διὰ τὸν πατέρα, καὶ ὁ τρώγων με κἀκεῖνος ζήσει δῖ ἐμέ.
58This is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live for ever." οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ ἀρτος ὁ ἐξ οὐρανοῦ καταβάς, οὐ καθὼς ἐφαγον οἱ πατέρες καὶ ἀπέθανον· ὁ τρώγων τοῦτον τὸν ἀρτον ζήσει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα.
59This he said in the synagogue, as he taught at Caper'na-um. Ταῦτα εἶπεν ἐν συναγωγῇ διδάσκων ἐν Καφαρναούμ.
