John 6:1-21 (King James Version)View In My Bible
1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. 2 And agreat multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that werediseased . 3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. 4 And thepassover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a greatcompany come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat ? 6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do . 7 Philip answered him, Twohundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. 8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, 9 There is a lad here, whichhath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? 10 And Jesussaid , Make the men sit down . Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down , innumber about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks , hedistributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down ; and likewise of the fishesas much as they would . 12 When they were filled , he said unto his disciples, Gather up thefragments that remain , that nothing be lost . 13 Therefore they gathered them together , andfilled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and aboveunto them that had eaten . 14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did ,said , This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world. 15 When Jesus thereforeperceived that they would come and take him by force , to make him a king, he departed again intoa mountain himself alone. 16 And when even was now come , his disciples went down unto thesea, 17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark,and Jesus was not come to them. 18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew . 19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on thesea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid . 20 But he saith unto them, It is I; benot afraid . 21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at theland whither they went .
