John 6:5

Lifting up his eyes (eparav touv optalmouv).
First aorist active participle of epairw. See the same phrase in 4:35 where it is also followed by teaomai; 11:41; 17:1; Luke 6:20. Here it is particularly expressive as Jesus looked down from the mountain on the approaching multitude.

Cometh unto him (erxetai prov auton).
Present middle indicative, "is coming to him." The same oxlov poluv (here poluv oxlov) of verse 2 that had followed Jesus around the head of the lake.

Whence are we to buy? (Poten agoraswmen;).
Deliberative subjunctive (aorist active). John passes by the earlier teaching and healing of the Synoptics (Mark 6:34; Matthew 14:14; Luke 9:11) till mid-afternoon. In John also Jesus takes up the matter of feeding the multitude with Philip (from the other Bethsaida, 1:44) whereas in the Synoptics the disciples raise the problem with Jesus. So the disciples raise the problem in the feeding of the four thousand (Mark 8:4; Matthew 15:33). See Numbers 11:13-22 (about Moses) and 2 Kings 4:42. (about Elisha).

Bread (artouv).
"Loaves" (plural) as in Matthew 4:3.

That these may eat (ina pagwsin outoi).
Purpose clause with ina and the second aorist active subjunctive of estiw (defective verb).
