And when he had taken the five loaves and two fishes
Out of the hands of those that brought them into his own:
he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves:
(See Gill on Matthew 14:19),
and gave them to his disciples to set before them;
the multitude, in order to eat of them:
and the two fishes divided he among them all;
that every one might have a part. The Syriac and Persic versions read, they divided; that is, the apostles.
