1 In those days, again, when there was a great crowd, and they did not have anything to eat, calling together his disciples, he said to them:
2 "I have compassion for the multitude, because, behold, they have persevered with me now for three days, and they do not have anything to eat.
3 And if I were to send them away fasting to their home, they might faint on the way." For some of them came from far away.
4 And his disciples answered him, "From where would anyone be able to obtain enough bread for them in the wilderness?"
5 And he questioned them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."
6 And he instructed the crowd to sit down to eat on the ground. And taking the seven loaves, giving thanks, he broke and gave it to his disciples in order to place before them. And they placed these before the crowd.
7 And they had a few small fish. And he blessed them, and he ordered them to be placed before them.
8 And they ate and were satisfied. And they took up what had been leftover from the fragments: seven baskets.
9 And those who ate were about four thousand. And he dismissed them.
10 And promptly climbing into a boat with his disciples, he went into the parts of Dalmanutha.
