King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
10 And the apostles, when they were returned , told him all that they had done . And he took them, and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Bethsaida. 10 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida,
11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing. 11 but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.
12 And when the day began to wear away , then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away , that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge , and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. 12 Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, "Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here."
13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat . And they said , We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people. 13 He replied, "You give them something to eat." They answered, "We have only five loaves of bread and two fish--unless we go and buy food for all this crowd."
14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down by fifties in a company. 14 (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
15 And they did so, and made them all sit down . 15 The disciples did so, and everybody sat down.
16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake , and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. 16 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to set before the people.
17 And they did eat , and were all filled : and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets. 17 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
