"It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing" (John 6:63) — The word rendered "quickeneth" means literally "makes alive" or "brings to life" ; while that which is translated "profiteth" can also be rendered "helps, benefits, or is useful" (Souter: Greek Lexicon, p. 290). Goodspeed renders: "The Spirit is what gives life; the flesh is of no use at all;" and Moffatt: "What gives life is the Spirit: flesh is of no avail at all;" while Weymouth has: "It is the Spirit which gives life. The flesh confers no benefit whatever."
"Miracles" (John 3:2) — The Greek term "Semeia," which is here translated "miracles," means literally "signs"; and this is the translation which is preferred by Weymouth, Moffatt, the Twentieth Century New Testament, Goodspeed, and the Revised Version, and is found in other renderings also.
