John 6:24-35
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
24When therefore the multitude saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they took shipping, and came to Capharnaum, seeking for Jesus.
25And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him: Rabbi, when camest thou hither?
26Jesus answered them, and said: Amen, amen I say to you, you seek me, not because you have seen miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that which endureth unto life everlasting, which the Son of man will give you. For him hath God, the Father, sealed.
28They said therefore unto him: What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?
29Jesus answered, and said to them: This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he hath sent.
30They said therefore to him: What sign therefore dost thou shew, that we may see, and may believe thee? What dost thou work?
31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say to you; Moses gave you not bread from heaven, but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33For the bread of God is that which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world.
34They said therefore unto him: Lord, give us always this bread.
35And Jesus said to them: I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger: and he that believeth in me shall never thirst.
Ephesians 4:17-24

17This then I say and testify in the Lord: That henceforward you walk not as also the Gentiles walk in the vanity of their mind,
18Having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their hearts.
19Who despairing, have given themselves up to lasciviousness, unto the working of all uncleanness, unto the working of all uncleanness, unto covetousness.
20But you have not so learned Christ;
21If so be that you have heard him, and have been taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus:
22To put off, according to former conversation, the old man, who is corrupted according to the desire of error.
23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind:
24And put on the new man, who according to God is created in justice and holiness of truth.
John 6:45-51
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
45It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father, and hath learned, cometh to me.
46Not that any man hath seen the Father; but he who is of God, he hath seen the Father.
47Amen, amen I say unto you: He that believeth in me, hath everlasting life.
48I am the bread of life.
49Your fathers did eat manna in the desert, and are dead.
50This is the bread which cometh down from heaven; that if any man eat of it, he may not die.
51I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
John 6:51-58
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
51I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
52If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and the bread that I will give, is my flesh, for the life of the world.
53The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
54Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you.
55He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.
56For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed.
57He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him.
58As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father; so he that eateth me, the same also shall live by me.
Ephesians 5:15-20
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
15See therefore, brethren, how you walk circumspectly: not as unwise,
16But as wise: redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17Wherefore become not unwise, but understanding what is the will of God.
18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is luxury; but be ye filled with the holy Spirit,
19Speaking to yourselves in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord;
20Giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God and the Father:
