Matthew 16:7

7 And they discussed among themselves, "We didn't bring any bread."

Matthew 16:7 Meaning and Commentary

Ver. 7 And they reasoned among themselves
Either what should be the meaning of this caution of Christ's, and upon what account he should say this to them; or they were anxiously concerned what they should do for provision:

saying, because we have taken no bread;
for the phrase, "it is", is a supplement, and is not in the original text, which confines the sense to the first way of interpretation; the words may be read without it, and confirms the other sense, and which receives strength from what follows.

Matthew 16:7 In-Context

5 The disciples reached the other shore, and they had forgotten to take bread.
6 Then Jesus told them, "Watch out and beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees."
7 And they discussed among themselves, "We didn't bring any bread."
8 Aware of this, Jesus said, "You of little faith! Why are you discussing among yourselves that you do not have bread?
9 Don't you understand yet? Don't you remember the five loaves for the 5,000 and how many baskets you collected?
