Bible Scriptues: Darby Translation 

2 Peter 3:17-1817 *Ye* therefore, beloved, knowing [these] things before, take care lest, being led away along with the error of the wicked, ye should fall from your own stedfastness:18 but grow in grace, and in [the] knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him [be] glory both now and to [the] day of eternity. Amen.”

John 6:51-6951 I am the living bread which has come down out of heaven: if any one shall have eaten of this bread he shall live for ever; but the bread withal which I shall give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.52 The Jews therefore contended among themselves, saying, How can he give us this flesh to eat?53 Jesus therefore said to them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Unless ye shall have eaten the flesh of the Son of man, and drunk his blood, ye have no life in yourselves.

54 He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood has life eternal, and I will raise him up at the last day:55 for my flesh is truly food and my blood is truly drink.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 on account of the Father, *he* also who eats me shall live also on account of me.58 This is the bread which has come down out of heaven. Not as the fathers ate and died: he that eats this bread shall live for ever.

59 These things he said in [the] synagogue, teaching in Capernaum.60 Many therefore of his disciples having heard [it] said, This word is hard; who can hear it?61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmur concerning this, said to them, Does this offend you?

62 If then ye see the Son of man ascending up where he was before?63 It is the Spirit which quickens, the flesh profits nothing: the words which I have spoken unto you are spirit and are life.64 But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would deliver him up.

65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no one can come to me unless it be given to him from the Father.66 From that [time] many of his disciples went away back and walked no more with him.67 Jesus therefore said to the twelve, Will ye also go away?68 Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast words of life eternal;69 and we have believed and known that thou art the holy one of God.”

Ephesians 4:7-16But to each one of us has been given grace according to the measure of the gift of the Christ.Wherefore he says, Having ascended up on high, he has led captivity captive, and has given gifts to men.But that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended into the lower parts of the earth?

10 He that descended is the same who has also ascended up above all the heavens, that he might fill all things;11 and *he* has given some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some shepherds and teachers,12 for the perfecting of the saints; with a view to [the] work of [the] ministry, with a view to the edifying of the body of Christ;13 until we all arrive at the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, at [the] full-grown man, at [the] measure of the stature of the fulness of the Christ;

14 in order that we may be no longer babes, tossed and carried about by every wind of *that* teaching [which is] in the sleight of men, in unprincipled cunning with a view to systematized error;15 but, holding the truth in love, we may grow up to him in all things, who is the head, the Christ:16 from whom the whole body, fitted together, and connected by every joint of supply, according to [the] working in [its] measure of each one part, works for itself the increase of the body to its self-building up in love.”
