47 Most assuredly, I say to you, (A)he who believes [a]in Me has everlasting life. 48 (B)I am the bread of life. 49 (C)Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 (D)This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread (E)which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and (F)the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

52 The Jews therefore (G)quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless (H)you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 (I)Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is [b]food indeed, and My blood is [c]drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood (J)abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58 (K)This is the bread which came down from heaven—not (L)as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

59 These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.

47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.(A) 48 I am the bread of life.(B) 49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died.(C) 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven,(D) which anyone may eat and not die. 51 I am the living bread(E) that came down from heaven.(F) Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”(G)

52 Then the Jews(H) began to argue sharply among themselves,(I) “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(J) of the Son of Man(K) and drink his blood,(L) 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.(M) 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.(N) 57 Just as the living Father sent me(O) 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.”(P) 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
