John 6:28


(KJV)   Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

(1611 KJV) Then said they vnto him, What shall we doe, that we might worke the workes of God?


(CEB) They asked, “What must we do in order to accomplish what God requires?”

(NIV) Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”

(NET) So then they said to him, “What must we do to accomplish the deeds God requires?”


The CEB, NET & NIV add the word “requires” making it sound like God requires certain works for salvation.  God requires no work for salvation since salvation is all of the Lord. Jonah 2:9 (KJV)   But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.
