Matthew 15:29-39; Matthew 16:1-12 (Lexham English Bible)

Many Others Healed in Galilee

29 And departing from there, Jesus went along the Sea of Galilee, and he went up on the mountain [and] was sitting there. 30 And large crowds came to him, having with them [the] mute, blind, lame, crippled, and many others, and they put them down at his feet, and he healed them. 31 So then the crowd was astonished [when they] saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing, and they praised the God of Israel.

The Feeding of Four Thousand

32 And Jesus summoned his disciples [and] said, "I have compassion on the crowd, because they have remained with me three days already and do not have anything to eat, and I do not want to send them away hungry lest they give out on the way." 33 And the disciples said to him, "Where in [this] desolate place {can we get} so much bread that such a great crowd could be satisfied?" 34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" So they said, "Seven, and a few little fish." 35 And commanding the crowd to recline for a meal on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish and [after he] had given thanks, he broke [them] and began giving [them] to the disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowds. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven baskets full. 38 Now those who ate were four thousand men, in addition to women and children. 39 And [after he] sent away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan.

The Signs of the Times

1 And [when] the Pharisees and Sadducees came to test [him], they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 So he answered [and] said to them, "[When] evening comes you say, '[It will be] fair weather because the sky is red,' 3 and early in the morning, 'Today [it will be] stormy weather, because the sky is red [and] darkening.' You know how to evaluate correctly the appearance of the sky, but you are not able [to evaluate] the signs of the times. 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, and a sign will not be given to it except the sign of Jonah!" And he left them [and] went away.

Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees

5 And [when] the disciples arrived at the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 And Jesus said to them, "Watch out for and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees!" 7 So they were discussing [this] among themselves, saying, "[It is] because we did not take bread." 8 But knowing [this], Jesus said, "Why are you discussing among yourselves that you did not take bread, [you] of little faith? 9 Do you not yet understand or do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up? 10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand and how many baskets you took up? 11 How do you not understand that I did not speak to you about bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees!" 12 Then they understood that he did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
