NET © Notes

tn Or “perishes” (this might refer to spoiling, but is more focused on the temporary nature of this kind of food).

sn Do not work for the food that disappears. Note the wordplay on “work” here. This does not imply “working” for salvation, since the “work” is later explained (in John 6:29) as “to believe in the one whom he (the Father) sent.”

tn The referent (the food) has been specified for clarity by repeating the word “food” from the previous clause.

tn Grk “on this one.”
