Chapter 6

 

6:1 With (meta) [the passing] of these things (tauta) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) went away (apēlthen) [on the] other side (peran) of the (tēs) sea (thalassēs), of the one (tēs) of Galilee (Galilaias), of the one (tēs) of Tiberias (Tiberiados).

 

6:2 But (de) a large (polus) crowd (ochlos) was following (ēkolouthei) him (autō), because (hoti) they were observing (etheōroun) the (ta) signs (sēmeia) which (ha) he was doing (epoiei) over (epi) [the sake] of the ones (tōn) being disabled (asthenountōn).

 

6:3 But (de) Jesus (Iēsous) went up (anēlthen) into (eis) the (to) mountain (oros), and (kai) there (ekei) he was causing himself to sit down (ekathēto) with (meta) the (tōn) disciples (mathētōn) of him (autou).

 

6:4 But (de) the (to) Passover (Pascha) was being (ēn) near (engus), the (hē) feast (heortē) of the (tōn) Judeans (Ioudaiōn).

 

6:5 Therefore (oun) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous), he having lifted up (eparas) the (tous) eyes (ophthalmous) and (hai) having caused himself to observe (theasamenos) that (hoti) a large (polus) crowd (ochlos) causes itself to come (erchetai) to (pros) him (auton), says (legei) to (pros) Philip (Philippon), “From where (pothen) may we go to market to buy (agorasōmen) loaves of bread (artous), in order that (hina) these ones (houtoi) may eat (phagōsin)?”

 

6:6 But (de) this (touto) he was saying (elegen), testing (peirazōn) him (auton);  

 

because (gar) he (autos) had seen (ēdei) what (ti) he was being about (emellen) to do (poiein).

 

6:7 The (ho) Philip (Philippos) was caused to make a decision (apekrithē) for him (autō), “In order that (hina) each one (hekastos) may receive (labē) some (ti) little bit (brachu), loaves of bread (artoi) [costing] two hundred (diakosiōn) denarii (dēnariōn) absolutely would not satisfy (ouk arkousin) them (autois)!"

 

6:8 One (heis) out (ek) of the (tōn) disciples (mathētōn) of him (autou), Andrew (Andreas), the (ho) brother (adelphos) of Simon (Simōnos) Peter (Petrou), says (legei) to him (autō),

 

6:9 “There is (estin) a child (paidarion) here (hōde) who (hos) has (echei) five (pente) barley (krithinous) loaves of bread (artous), and (kai) two (duo) little fishes (opsaria).  

 

BUT (alla), these (tauta) are (estin) what (ti), into (eis) so many (tosoutous)!?”

 

6:10 The (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen), “Make (poiēsate) the (tous) mortals (anthrōpous) to fall up377 (anapesein).”  

 

But (de) there was being (ēn) a large (polus) pasturage (chartos) in (en) the (tō) place (topō)

 

Therefore (oun) the (hoi) males (andres) fell up377 (anepesan).  

 

The (ton) number (arithmon) [was] as (hōs) five thousand (pentakischilioi).

 

6:11 Therefore (oun) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) took (elaben) the (tous) loaves of bread (artous), and (kai) having given thanks well (eucharistēsas) he distributed (diedōken) [it] to the ones (tois) being caused to lie up345 (anakeimenois);

 

and (kai) likewise (homoiōs) out (ek) of the (tōn) little fishes (opsariōn), [he distributed] as much as (hoson) they were desiring (ēthelon).

 

6:12 But (de) as (hōs) they were filled in (eneplēsthēsan) he says (legei) to the (tois) disciples (mathētais) of him (autou), “Bring together (sunagagete) the (ta) broken pieces (klasmata) abounding (perisseusanta), in order that (hina) not (mē) anything (ti) may cause itself to be lost (apolētai).”

 

6:13 Therefore (oun) they brought together (sunēgagon) and (kai) loaded (egemisan) twelve (dōdeka) baskets (kophinous) of broken pieces (klasmatōn) out (ek) of the (tōn) five (pente) loaves of bread (artōn) of the (tōn) barley (krithinōn), which (ha) abounded (eperisseusen) to the ones (tois) having eaten (bebrōkosin)!

 

6:14 Therefore (oun) the (hoi) mortals (anthrōpoi), having seen (idontes) what (ho) sign (sēmeion) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) did (epoiēsen), were saying (elegon) that (hoti) this one (houtos) is (estin) truly (alēthōs) the (ho) prophet (prophētēs), the one (ho) being caused to come (erchomenos) into (eis) the (ton) cosmos (kosmon)!

 

6:15 Therefore (oun) Jesus (Iēsous) having known (gnous) that (hoti) they are about (mellousin) to cause themselves to come (erchesthai), and (kai) to snatch (harpazein) him (auton) in order that (hina) they may make (poiēsōsin) [him] a king (basilea), he made up room402 (anechōrēsen) again (palin) into (eis) the (to) mountain (oros), he (autos) alone (monon).

 

6:16 But (de) as (hōs) evening (opsia) caused itself to come to pass (egeneto) the (hoi) disciples (mathētai) of him (autou) walked down (katebēsan) upon (epi) the (tēn) sea (thalassan).

 

6:17 And (kai) they having embarked (embantes) into (eis) a ship (ploion) they were causing themselves to come (ērchonto) [to the] other side (peran) of the (tēs) sea (thalassēs), into (eis) Capernaum (Kapharnaoum)

 

And (kai) it had already become (ēdē egegonei) dark (skotia), and (kai) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) had absolutely not yet come (oupō elēluthei) to (pros) them (autous)!

 

6:18 And (te) the (hē) sea (thalassa) was being aroused thoroughly (diegeireto) of a great (megalou) wind (anemou) blowing (pneontos).

 

6:19 Therefore (oun) they having driven [the ship] (elēlakotes) as (hōs) [far as] twenty (eikosi) five (pente) or (ē) thirty (trikonta) stadia (stadious), they observe (theōrousin) the (ton) Jesus (Iēsoun) walking around (peripatounta) upon (epi) the (tēs) sea (thalassēs), and (kai) causing himself to become (ginomenon) near (engus) the (tou) ship (ploiou).  

 

And (kai) they were caused to be in fear (ephobēthēsan).

 

6:20 But (de) the (ho) [Jesus] says (legei) to them (autois), “I (egō) am (eimi) [I].

 

Do not be made fearful (mē phobeisthe).”

 

6:21 Therefore (oun) they were desiring (ēthelon) to take (labein) him (auton) into (eis) the (to) ship (ploion).

 

And (kai) the (to) ship (ploion) into (eis) which (hēn) they were getting underway (hupēgon) caused itself to become (egeneto) straightaway (eutheōs) upon (epi) the (tēs) land (gēs).

 

6:22 Upon the morrow (tē epaurion) the (ho) crowd (ochlos), the one (ho) having stood (hestēkōs) [on the] other side (peran) of the (tēs) sea (thalassēs), they saw (eidon) that (hoti) another (allo) small ship (ploiarion) was absolutely not being (ouk ēn) there (ekei), if (ei) not (mē) one (hen);

 

and (kai) that (hoti) the (tois) disciples (mathētais) of him (autou) absolutely did not enter in together with (ou suneisēlthen) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) into (eis) the (to) ship (ploion)!  

 

BUT (alla), the (hoi) disciples (mathētai) of him (autou) were gone away (apēlthon) alone (monoi)!

 

6:23 Other (alla) small ships (ploi) came (ēlthen) out (ek) of Tiberias (Tiberiados), near (engus) the (tou) place (topou) where (hopou) they ate (ephagon) the (ton) bread (arton) of the (tou) lord (kuriou), having given thanks well (eucharistēsantos).

 

6:24 Therefore (oun) when (hote) the (ho) crowd (ochlos) saw (eiden) that (hoti) Jesus (Iēsous) is (estin) absolutely not (ouk) there (ekei), but absolutely not (oude) the (hoi) disciples (mathētai) of him (autou), they (autoi) embarked (enebēsan) into (eis) the (ta) small ships (ploiaria) and (kai) came (ēlthon) into (eis) Capernaum (kapharnaoum) searching (zētountes) for the (ton) Jesus (Iēsoun)!

 

6:25 And (kai) having found (heurontes) him (auton) [on the] other side (peran) of the (tēs) sea (thalassēs), they enunciated (eipon) to him (autō), “Rabbi (rhabbi), when (pote) have you become (gegonas) here (hōde)?”

 

6:26 The (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) was caused to make a decision (apekrithē) for them (autois), and (kai) he enunciated (eipen), “Truly (amēn), truly (amēn) I say (legō) to you (humin), you search (zēteite) for me (me) absolutely not (ouch) because (hoti) you saw (eidete) signs (sēmeia), BUT (all’), because (hoti) you ate (ephagete) out (ek) of the (tou) loaves of bread (artōn) and (kai) you were pastured5526 (echortasthēte)!

 

6:27 Work (ergazesthe) not (mē) [for] the (tēn) food (brōsin), the (tēn) [food] you yourself are losing (apollumenēn).

 

BUT (alla), [work for] the (tēn) food (brōsin), the (tēn) [food] staying (menousan) into (eis) ageless (aiōnion) life (zōēn), which (hēn) the (ho) Son (huios) of the (tou) Mortal (anthrōpou) shall give (dōsei) to you (humin)!  

 

Because (gar) this (touton) [food] the (ho) Father (patēr), the (ho) God (theos), sealed (esphragisen).”

 

6:28 Therefore (oun) they enunciated (eipon) to (pros) him (auton), “What (ti) may we do (poiōmen) in order that (hina) we may cause ourselves to work (ergazōmetha) the (ta) works (erga) of the (tou) God (theou)?”

 

6:29 The (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) was caused to make a decision (apekrithē), and (kai) he enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “This (touto) is (estin) the (to) work (ergon) of the (tou) God (theou), that (hoti) you may believe (pisteuēte) into (eis) whom (hon) that one (ekeinos) sent (apesteilen).”

 

6:30 Therefore (oun) they enunciated (eipon) to him (autō), “Therefore (oun) what (ti) sign (sēmeion) do you do (poieis su), in order that (hina) we may see (idōmen) [it], and (kai) we may believe (pisteusōmen) you (soi)?

 

What (ti) [sign] do you cause yourself to work (ergazē)?

 

6:31 The (hoi) fathers (pateres) of us (hēmōn) ate (ephagon) the (to) manna (manna) in (en) the (tē) desolate place (erēmō), down as (kathos) it is (estin) having been written (gegrammenon), ‘He gave (edōken) to them (autois) bread (arton) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou) to eat (phagein).’”

 

6:32 Therefore (oun) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “Truly (amēn), truly (amēn) I say (legō) to you (humin), Moses (Mōusēs) has absolutely not given (ou dedōken) to you (humin) the (ton) bread (arton) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou)!  

 

BUT (all’), the (ho) Father (patēr) of me (mou) gives (didōsin) to you (humin) the (ton) bread (arton) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou), the (ton) true (alēthinon) [bread]!

 

6:33 Because (gar) the (ho) bread (artos) of the (tou) God (theou) is (estin) the one (ho) stepping down (katabainōn) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou) and (kai) giving (didous) life (zōēn) to the (tō) cosmos (kosmō).”

 

(For the Word’s heavenly pre-existence as a spirit-based being see Prov. 8:22-31; Dan. 3:25-28; John 1:1-2, 14, 30, 3:13, 31, 6:33, 38, 41, 50-51, 58-62, 8:23-26, 58, 13:3, 16:27-30, 17:5-8, 24; Rom. 8:29; 1 Cor. 10:4, 9, 15:47; Gal. 4:1-5; Eph. 4:8-10, Phil. 2:6-7; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:4-6, 3:2; 1 Pet. 1:20; 1 John 1:2; Rev. 3:14)

 

6:34 Therefore (oun) they enunciated (eipon) to (pros) him (auton), “Lord (kurie), always (pantote) give (dos) this (touton), the (ton) bread (arton), to us (hēmin).”

 

6:35 But (de) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “I (egō) am (eimi) the one (ho), the (tēs) bread (artos) of life (zōēs)

 

The one (ho) causing himself to come (erchomenos) to (pros) me (eme), no (mē), absolutely not (ou) may he pine (peinasē)!

 

And (kai) the one (ho) believing (pisteuōn) upon (epi) me (eme), no (mē), he shall absolutely not thirst (ou dipsēsei) ever, at any time (pōpote)!

 

6:36 BUT (alla), I enunciated (eipon) [this] to you (humin) because (hoti) you also have gazed at (kai heōrakate) me (eme), and (kai) you absolutely do not believe (ou pisteuete)!

 

6:37 Everyone (pan) whom (ho) the (ho) Father (patēr) gives (didōsin) to me (moi) shall arrive (hēxei) to (pros) me (eme)

 

And (kai) the one (ton) causing himself to come (erchomenon) to (pros) me (eme), no (mē), absolutely not may I throw (ou ekbalō) [that one] out (exō)!

 

6:38 Because (hoti), I have stepped down (katabebēka) from (apo) the (tou) heaven (ouranou) absolutely not (ouch) in order that (hina) I do (poiō) the (to) desire (thelēma), the one (to) of me (emon), BUT (alla), the (to) desire (thelēma) of the one (tou) having sent (pempsantos) me (me)!

 

(For the Word’s heavenly pre-existence as a spirit-based being see Prov. 8:22-31; Dan. 3:25-28; John 1:1-2, 14, 30, 3:13, 31, 6:33, 38, 41, 50-51, 58-62, 8:23-26, 58, 13:3, 16:27-30, 17:5-8, 24; Rom. 8:29; 1 Cor. 10:4, 9, 15:47; Gal. 4:1-5; Eph. 4:8-10, Phil. 2:6-7; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:4-6, 3:2; 1 Pet. 1:20; 1 John 1:2; Rev. 3:14)

 

6:39 But (de) this (touto) is (estin) the (to) desire (thelēma) of the one (tou) having sent (pempsantos) me (me):

 

that (hina) everyone (pan) which (ho) He has given (dedōken) to me (moi) I may not lose (mē apolesō) [anyone] out (ex) of it (autou), BUT (alla), [in order that] I may stand [him] up (anastēsō auto) in (en) the (tē) last (eschatē) day (hēmera)!

 

6:40 Because (gar) this (touto) is (estin) the (to) desire (thelēma) of the (tou) Father (patros) of me (mou):

 

that (hina) everyone (pas), the one (ho) observing (theōrōn) the (ton) son (huion) and (kai) believing (pisteuōn) into (eis) him (auton), he may hold (echē) ageless (aiōnion) life (zōēn)

 

And (kai) I (egō) shall stand him up (anastēsō auton) in (en) the (tē) last (eschatē) day (hēmera)!”

 

6:41 Therefore (oun) the (hoi) Judeans (Ioudaioi) were murmuring (egonguzon) about (peri) him (autou), because (hoti) he enunciated (eipen), ‘I (egō) am (eimi) the (ho) bread (artos), the (ho) [bread] having stepped down (katabas) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou)’.

6:42 And (kai) they were saying (elegon), “Is (estin) this one (houtos) absolutely not (ou) Jesus (Iēsous), the (ho) son (huios) of Joseph (Iōsēph), of whom (hou) we (hēmeis) have seen (oidamen) the (ton) father (patera) and (kai) the (tēn) mother (mētera)!? 

 

Now (nun) how (pōs) does he say (legei) that (hoti), ‘Out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou) I have stepped down (katabebēka)?’”

 

6:43 Jesus (Iēsous) was caused to make a decision (apekrithē), and (kai) he enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “Do not (mē) murmur (gonguzete) with (met’) one another (allēlōn).

 

6:44 Absolutely not one (oudeis) can inherently power himself (dunatai) to come (elthein) to (pros) me (me) if not perhaps (ean mē) the (ho) Father (patēr), the (ho) [Father] having sent (pempsas) me (me), may draw (helkusē) him (auton)

 

(See John 14:6)

 

And I (kagō) shall stand him up (anastēsō auton) in (en) the (tē) last (eschatē) day (hēmera).

 

6:45 It is (estin) having been written (gegrammenon) in (en) the (tois) prophets (prophētais), ‘And (kai) they shall cause themselves to be (esontai) all (pantes) ones taught (didaktoi) of God (theou).’ 

 

Everyone (pas), the one (ho) having heard (akousas) alongside3844 (para) of the (tou) Father (patros) and (kai) having learned (mathōn), he causes himself to come (erchetai) to (pros) me (eme).

 

(For all those who have received a new birth above in God’s promised gift of His paternal holy Spirit (Lev. 26:11-12; John 3:3-8; Acts 1:4; 2 Cor. 6:16-18; *1 Pet. 1:23), and for those paternal sons being taught by God (YHWH) Himself, see Isa. 54:13; Jer. 31:31-34; Luke 12:12; John 5:19-20, 6:45, 14:26, 15:26, 16:13-14; 1 Cor. 1:4-8, 12:8; 2 Cor. 5:19; Gal. 1:12; Eph. 4:20-21; 1 Thes. 4:9; Heb. 8:8-12, 10:16-17; 1 John 2:27, 5:20)

 

6:46 Because (hoti) absolutely not (ouch) anyone (tis) has gazed at (heōraken) the (ton) Father (patera), if (ei) not (mē) the one (ho) being (ōn) alongside3844 (para) of the (tou) God (theou)

 

This one (houtos) has gazed at (heōraken) the (ton) Father (patera).

6:47 Truly (amēn), truly (amēn) I say (legō) to you (humin), the one (ho) believing (pisteuōn) holds (echei) ageless (aiōnion) life (zōēn)!

 

6:48 I (ego) am (eimi) the (ho) bread (artos) of the (tēs) life (zōēs).

 

6:49 The (hoi) fathers (pateres) of you (humōn) ate (ephagon) the (to) manna (manna) in (en) the (tē) desolate place (erēmō), and (kai) died away (apethanon).

 

6:50 This one (houtos) is (estin) the (ho) bread (artos), the one (ho) stepping down (katabainōn) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou), in order that (hina) anyone (tis) may eat (phagē) out (ex) of him (autou) and (kai) may not die away (mē apothanē).

 

6:51 I (egō) am (eimi) the (ho) bread (artos), the (ho) living (zōn) [bread], the one (ho) having stepped down (katabas) out (ek) of the (tou) heaven (ouranou).

 

If perhaps (ean) anyone (tis) may eat (phagē) out (ek) of the (tou) bread (artou) of this (toutou), he shall live (zēsei) into (eis) the (ton) age (aiōna).

 

And (kai) the (ho) bread (artos), but (de) the (hē) flesh (sarx) of me (mou) which (hon) I shall give (dōsō), is (estin) over (huper) [the sake] of the (tēs) life (zōēs) of the (tou) cosmos (kosmou).”

 

(For the Word’s heavenly pre-existence as a spirit-based being see Prov. 8:22-31; Dan. 3:25-28; John 1:1-2, 14, 30, 3:13, 31, 6:33, 38, 41, 50-51, 58-62, 8:23-26, 58, 13:3, 16:27-30, 17:5-8, 24; Rom. 8:29; 1 Cor. 10:4, 9, 15:47; Gal. 4:1-5; Eph. 4:8-10, Phil. 2:6-7; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:4-6, 3:2; 1 Pet. 1:20; 1 John 1:2; Rev. 3:14)

 

6:52 Therefore (oun) the (hoi) Judeans (Ioudaioi) were being caused to fight (emachonto) toward (pros) one another (allēlous), saying (legontes), “How (pōs) [can] this one (houtos) inherently power himself (dunatai) to give (dounai) to us (hēmin) the (tēn) flesh (sarx) of him (autou) to eat (phagein)!?”

 

6:53 Therefore (oun) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “Truly (amēn), truly (amēn) I say (legō) to you (humin), if perhaps (ean) you may not eat (mē phagēte) the (tēn) flesh (sarka) of the (tou) Son (huiou) of the (tou) Mortal (anthrōpou), and (kai) you may [not] drink (piēte) the (to) blood (haima) of him (autou), you absolutely do not hold (ouk echete) life (zōēn) in (en) yourselves (heautois)!

 

6:54 The one (ho) gnawing (trōgōn) the (tēn) flesh (sarka) of me (mou), and (kai) drinking (pinōn) the (to) blood (haima) of me (mou), holds (echei) ageless (aiōnion) life (zōēn).

 

And I (kagō) shall stand him up (anastēsō auton) the (tē) last (aschatē) day (hēmera).

 

6:55 Because (gar) the (hē) flesh (sarx) of me (mou) is (estin) true (alēthēs) food (brōsis), and (kai) the (to) blood (haima) of me (mou) is (estin) true (alēthēs) drink (posis).

 

6:56 The one (ho) gnawing (trōgōn) the (tēn) flesh (sarka) of me (mou), and (kai) drinking (pinōn) the (to) blood (haima) of me (mou), he stays (menei) in (en) to me (emoi), and I (kagō) [stay] in (en) to him (auton).

 

6:57 Down according to as (kathōs) the (ho) living (zōn) Father (patēr) sent (apesteilen) me (me), and I (kagō) live (zō) through (dia) the (ton) Father (patera), the one (ho) also (kai) gnawing (trōgōn) me (me), that one also (kakeinos) shall live (zēsei) through (di’) me (eme).

 

6:58 This one (houtos) is (estin) the (ho) bread (artos), the one (ho) having stepped down (katabas) out (ex) of heaven (ouranou).

 

[It is] absolutely not (ou) [bread] down according to as (kathōs) the (hoi) fathers (pateres) ate (ephagon), and (kai) they died away (apethanon)!  

 

The one (ho) gnawing (trōgōn) this (touton) [bread], the (ton) bread (arton) [of me], he shall live (zēsei) into (eis) the (ton) age (aiōna)!”

 

6:59 These things (tauta) he enunciated (eipen) in (en) a synagogue (sunagōgē), teaching (didaskōn) in (en) Capernaum (Kapharnaoum).

 

6:60 Therefore (oun) many (polloi) out (ek) of the (tōn) disciples (mathētōn) of him (autou), having heard (akousantes), they enunciated (eipan), “The (ho) Word (logos) is (estin) a hard one (sklēros).  

 

Who (tis) can inherently power himself (dunatai) to hear (akouein) this (houtos) of him (autou)?”

 

6:61 But (de) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous), having seen (eidōs) in (en) himself (heautō) that (hoti) the (hoi) disciples (mathētai) of him (autou) are murmuring (gonguzousin) about (peri) this (toutou), he enunciated (eipen) to them (autois), “This (touto) you (humas) scandalize (skandalizei)?

 

6:62 Therefore (oun) [what] if perhaps (ean) you may observe (theōrēte) the (ton) Son (huion) of the (tou) Mortal (anthrōpou) stepping up (anabainonta) where (hopou) he was being (ēn) the (to) previous (proteron) [time]?

 

(For the Word’s heavenly pre-existence as a spirit-based being see Prov. 8:22-31; Dan. 3:25-28; John 1:1-2, 14, 30, 3:13, 31, 6:33, 38, 41, 50-51, 58-62, 8:23-26, 58, 13:3, 16:27-30, 17:5-8, 24; Rom. 8:29; 1 Cor. 10:4, 9, 15:47; Gal. 4:1-5; Eph. 4:8-10, Phil. 2:6-7; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:4-6, 3:2; 1 Pet. 1:20; 1 John 1:2; Rev. 3:14)

 

6:63 The (to) Spirit (pneuma) is (estin) the one (to) making one alive (zōopoioun).

 

The (hē) flesh (sarx) absolutely does not profit (ouk ōphelei), absolutely not one thing (ouden)!

 

The (ta) statements (rhēmata) which (ha) I (egō) have spoken (lelalēka) to you (humin), [each one] is (estin) Spirit (pneuma) and (kai) [each one] is (estin) life (zōe)!

 

6:64 BUT (all’) there are (eisin) some (tines) out (ex) of you (humōn) who (hoi) absolutely do not believe (ou pisteuousin)!”  

 

Because (gar) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) had seen (ēdei), out (ex) of [the] beginning (archēs), some (tines) [who] are (eisin) the ones (hoi) not (mē) believing (pisteuontes), and (kai) who (tis) is (estin) the one (ho) passing him aside (paradōsōn auton).

 

(For ones whose god is their belly, see John 6:25-64; Php. 3:18-19)

 

6:65 And (kai) he was saying (elegen), “Through (dia) [the sake] of this (touto) I have stated (eirēka) to you (humin) that (hoti) absolutely not one (oudeis) can inherently power himself (dunatai) to come (elthein) to (pros) me (me) if not perhaps (ean mē) it may be (ē) it having been given (dedomenon) to him (autō) out (ek) of the (tou) Father (patros)!”

 

6:66 Out (ek) of this (toutou) many (polloi) out (ek) of the (tōn) disciples (mathētōn) of him (autou) were gone away (apēlthon) into (eis) the ones (ta) behind (opisō)

 

And (kai) they were absolutely no longer yet walking around (ouketi periepatoun) with (met’) him (autou)!

 

6:67 Therefore (oun) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) enunciated (eipen) to the (tois) twelve (dōdeka), “You (humeis) also (kai) do not desire (mē thelete) to get underway (hupagein)!?”

 

6:68 Simon (Simōn) Peter (Petros) was caused to make a decision (apekrithē) for him (autō), “Lord (kurie), to (pros) whom (tina) shall we cause ourselves to go (apeleusometha)?  

 

You hold (echeis) statements (rhēmata) of ageless (aiōniou) life (zōēs);

 

6:69 and (kai) we (hēmeis) have believed (pepisteukamen), and (kai) have known (egnōkamen) that (hoti) you (su) are (ei) the (ho) holy one (hagios) of the (tou) God (theou).”

 

6:70 The (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) was caused to make a decision (apekrithē) for them (autois), “Did I absolutely not cause myself to call out (ouk egō exelexamēn) you (humas), the (tous) twelve (dōdeka), and (kai) one (heis) out (ex) of you (humōn) is (estin) a diabolical one (diabolos)!?”

 

6:71 But (de) he was speaking (elegen) of the (ton) Judas (Ioudan) of Simon (Simōnos) of Iscariot (Iskariōtou), because (gar) this one (houtos), one (heis) out (ek) of the (tōn) twelve (dōdeka), was being about (emellen) to pass him aside (paradidonai auton).
