After these things Jesus went away beyond the sea of Galilee, [or] of Tiberias,
and a great crowd followed him, because they saw the signs which he wrought upon the sick.
And Jesus went up into the mountain, and there sat with his disciples:
but the passover, the feast of the Jews, was near.
Jesus then, lifting up his eyes and seeing that a great crowd is coming to him, says to Philip, Whence shall we buy loaves that these may eat?
But this he said trying him, for he knew what he was going to do.
Philip answered him, Loaves for two hundred denarii are not sufficient for them, that each may have some little [portion].
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, says to him,
There is a little boy here who has five barley loaves and two small fishes; but this, what is it for so many?
[And] Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place: the men therefore sat down, in number about five thousand.
And Jesus took the loaves, and having given thanks, distributed [them] to those that were set down; and in like manner of the small fishes as much as they would.
