    John 6
    •   After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
    •   And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
    •   And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
    •   And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was near.
    •   When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come to him, he said to Philip, From where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
    •   And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
    •   Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
    •   One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,
    •   There is a lad here, which has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
    • 10   And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
    • 11   And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
    • 12   When they were filled, he said to his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
    • 13   Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above to 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 therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
    • 16   And when even was now come, his disciples went down to the sea,
    • 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.
    • 19   So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing near to the ship: and they were afraid.
    • 20   But he said to them, It is I; be not afraid.
    • 21   Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land where they went.
    • 22   The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one into where his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
    • 23   (However, there came other boats from Tiberias near to the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
    • 24   When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
    • 25   And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, Rabbi, when came you here?
    • 26   Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, You seek me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
    • 27   Labor not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give to you: for him has God the Father sealed.
    • 28   Then said they to him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
    • 29   Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent.
    • 30   They said therefore to him, What sign show you then, that we may see, and believe you? what do you work?
    • 31   Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
    • 32   Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
    • 33   For the bread of God is he which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.
    • 34   Then said they to him, Lord, ever more give us this bread.
    • 35   And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.
    • 36   But I said to you, That you also have seen me, and believe not.
    • 37   All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out.
    • 38   For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.
    • 39   And this is the Father's will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
    • 40   And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
    • 41   The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
    • 42   And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he said, I came down from heaven?
    • 43   Jesus therefore answered and said to them, Murmur not among yourselves.
    • 44   No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
    • 45   It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes to me.
    • 46   Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father.
    • 47   Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
    • 48   I am that bread of life.
    • 49   Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
    • 50   This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
    • 51   I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
    • 52   The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
    • 53   Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
    • 54   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 meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
    • 56   He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
    • 57   As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me.
    • 58   This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live for ever.
    • 59   These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
    • 60   Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
    • 61   When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said to them, Does this offend you?
    • 62   What and if you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
    • 63   It is the spirit that vivifies; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.
    • 64   But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
    • 65   And he said, Therefore said I to you, that no man can come to me, except it were given to him of my Father.
    • 66   From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
    • 67   Then said Jesus to the twelve, Will you also go away?
    • 68   Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life.
    • 69   And we believe and are sure that you are that Christ, the Son of the living God.
    • 70   Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
    • 71   He spoke of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

  • American King James Version (akjv - 1.4)


    English (en)

    American King James Version
    Produced by Stone Engelbrite

    This is a new translation of the Bible, based on the original King James Version. It is a simple word for word update from the King James English. I have taken care to change nothing doctrinely, but to simply update the spelling and vocabulary. I have not changed the grammar because that could alter it doctrinely.

    I am hereby putting the American King James version of the Bible into the public domain on November 8, 1999.

Basic Hash Usage Explained

At getBible, we've established a robust system to keep our API synchronized with the Crosswire project's modules. Let me explain how this integration works in simple terms.

We source our Bible text directly from the Crosswire modules. To monitor any updates, we generate "hash values" for each chapter, book, and translation. These hash values serve as unique identifiers that change only when the underlying content changes, thereby ensuring a tight integration between getBible and the Crosswire modules.

Every month, an automated process runs for approximately three hours. During this window, we fetch the latest Bible text from the Crosswire modules. Subsequently, we compare the new hash values and the text with the previous ones. Any detected changes trigger updates to both our official getBible hash repository and the Bible API for all affected translations. This system has been operating seamlessly for several years.

Once the updates are complete, any application utilizing our Bible API should monitor the hash values at the chapter, book, or translation level. Spotting a change in these values indicates that they should update their respective systems.

Hash values can change due to various reasons, including textual corrections like adding omitted verses, rectifying spelling errors, or addressing any discrepancies flagged by the publishers maintaining the modules at Crosswire.

The Crosswire initiative, also known as the SWORD Project, is the "source of truth" for getBible. Any modifications in the Crosswire modules get reflected in our API within days, ensuring our users access the most precise and current Bible text. We pledge to uphold this standard as long as getBible exists and our build scripts remain operational.

We're united in our mission to preserve the integrity and authenticity of the Bible text. If you have questions or require additional information, please use our support system. We're here to assist and will respond promptly.

Thank you for your understanding and for being an integral part of the getBible community.
