- Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
- Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
- Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
- Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
- They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
- Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.
- Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval."
- Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"
- Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
- So they asked him, "What miraculous sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?
