I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. 28 After this Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, that the scripture might be accomplished, saith, I thirst.
