29 And when Jesus had passed from there, he arrived beside the sea of Galilee. And ascending onto a mountain, he sat down there.
30 And great multitudes came to him, having with them the mute, the blind, the lame, the disabled, and many others. And they cast them down at his feet, and he cured them,
31 so much so that the crowds wondered, seeing the mute speaking, the lame walking, the blind seeing. And they magnified the God of Israel.
32 And Jesus, calling together his disciples, said: "I have compassion on the crowds, because they have persevered with me now for three days, and they do not have anything to eat. And I am not willing to dismiss them, fasting, lest they faint along the way."
33 And the disciples said to him: "From where, then, in the desert, would we obtain enough bread to satisfy so a great multitude?"
34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves of bread do you have?" But they said, "Seven, and a few little fish."
35 And he instructed the crowds to recline upon the ground.
36 And taking the seven loaves and the fish, and giving thanks, he broke and gave to his disciples, and the disciples gave to the people.
37 And they all ate and were satisfied. And, from what was left over of the fragments, they took up seven full baskets.
