And going out he saw a great crowd, and was moved with compassion about them, and healed their infirm.
But when even was come, his disciples came to him saying, The place is desert, and [much of] the [day] time already gone by; dismiss the crowds, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.
But Jesus said to them, They have no need to go: give *ye* them to eat.
But they say to him, We have not here save five loaves and two fishes.
And he said, Bring them here to me.
And having commanded the crowds to recline upon the grass, having taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed: a and having broken the loaves, he gave [them] to the disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowds.
And all ate and were filled, and they took up what was over and above of fragments twelve hand-baskets b full.
But those that had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
And immediately he compelled the disciples to go on board ship, and to go on before him to the other side, until he should have dismissed the crowds.
And having dismissed the crowds, he went up into the mountain c apart to pray. And when even was come, he was alone there,
but the ship was already in the middle of the sea tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.
