Now Jesus called his disciples and said, "I feel sorry for the crowd because they have been with me for three days and have nothing to eat. I don't want to send them away hungry for fear they won't have enough strength to travel."
His disciples replied, "Where are we going to get enough food in this wilderness to satisfy such a big crowd?"
Jesus said, "How much bread do you have?" They responded, "Seven loaves and a few fish."
He told the crowd to sit on the ground.
He took the seven loaves of bread and the fish. After he gave thanks, he broke them into pieces and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.
Everyone ate until they were full. The disciples collected seven baskets full of leftovers.
Four thousand men ate, plus women and children.
After dismissing the crowds, Jesus got into the boat and came to the region of Magadan.
