Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
29 Jesus moved on from there along the shore of the Galilee Sea. He went up a mountain and sat down. 29 Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down.
30 Large crowds came to him, including those who were paralyzed, blind, injured, and unable to speak, and many others. They laid them at his feet, and he healed them. 30 Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them.
31 So the crowd was amazed when they saw those who had been unable to speak talking, and the paralyzed cured, and the injured walking, and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel. 31 The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel.
32 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." 32 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way."
33 His disciples replied, "Where are we going to get enough food in this wilderness to satisfy such a big crowd?" 33 His disciples answered, "Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?"
34 Jesus said, "How much bread do you have?" They responded, "Seven loaves and a few fish." 34 "How many loaves do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven," they replied, "and a few small fish."
35 He told the crowd to sit on the ground. 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground.
36 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. 36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people.
37 Everyone ate until they were full. The disciples collected seven baskets full of leftovers. 37 They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
38 Four thousand men ate, plus women and children. 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand, besides women and children.
39 After dismissing the crowds, Jesus got into the boat and came to the region of Magadan. 39 After Jesus had sent the crowd away, he got into the boat and went to the vicinity of Magadan.
