The Feeding of Five Thousand

10 And [when they]a returned, the apostles described to him all that they had done. And he took them along [and]b withdrew privately to a town called Bethsaida. 11 But [when]c the crowds found out, they followed him, and welcoming them, he began to speakd to them about the kingdom of God, and he cured those who had need of healing. 12 Now the day began to be far spent, and the twelve came up [and]e said to him, "Send away the crowd so that they can go into the surrounding villages and farms to obtain lodging and find provisions, because we are here in a desolate place. 13 But he said to them, "You give them [something] to eat!" And they said, "{We have no}f more than five loaves and two fish, unless perhaps we go [and]g purchase food for all these people." 14 (For there were about five thousand men.) So he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each." 15 And they did so, and had [them] all sit down. 16 And taking the five loaves and the two fish, [and]h looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them and began givingi [them]j to the disciples to set before the crowd. 17 And [they] all ate and were satisfied, and what was left over was picked up by them--twelve baskets of broken pieces.
