NLT 1 About this time another large crowd had gathered, and the people ran out of food again. Jesus called his disciples and told them, NIV 1 During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said, NLT 2 “I feel sorry for these people. They have been here with me for three days, and they have nothing left to eat. NIV 2 "I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. NLT 3 If I send them home hungry, they will faint along the way. For some of them have come a long distance.” NIV 3 If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance." NLT 4 His disciples replied, “How are we supposed to find enough food to feed them out here in the wilderness?” NIV 4 His disciples answered, "But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?" NLT 5 Jesus asked, “How much bread do you have?” “Seven loaves,” they replied. NIV 5 "How many loaves do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven," they replied. NLT 6 So Jesus told all the people to sit down on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves, thanked God for them, and broke them into pieces. He gave them to his disciples, who distributed the bread to the crowd. NIV 6 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to set before the people, and they did so. NLT 7 A few small fish were found, too, so Jesus also blessed these and told the disciples to distribute them. NIV 7 They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them. NLT 8 They ate as much as they wanted. Afterward, the disciples picked up seven large baskets of leftover food. NIV 8 The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. NLT 9 There were about 4,000 people in the crowd that day, and Jesus sent them home after they had eaten. NIV 9 About four thousand men were present. And having sent them away, NLT 10 Immediately after this, he got into a boat with his disciples and crossed over to the region of Dalmanutha.

Testing him, they demanded that he show them a miraculous sign from heaven to prove his authority. NIV 11 The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven. NLT 12 When he heard this, he sighed deeply in his spirit and said, “Why do these people keep demanding a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, I will not give this generation any such sign.” NIV 12 He sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to it."
