7In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace8which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,9having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,10that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth--in Him.11In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,12that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.13In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,14who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.15Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,16do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,
1In those days, the multitude being very great and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him and said to them,2"I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat.3And if I send them away hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way; for some of them have come from afar."4Then His disciples answered Him, "How can one satisfy these people with bread here in the wilderness?"5He asked them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."6So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And He took the seven loaves and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the multitude.7They also had a few small fish; and having blessed them, He said to set them also before them.8So they ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets of leftover fragments.9Now those who had eaten were about four thousand. And He sent them away,10immediately got into the boat with His disciples, and came to the region of Dalmanutha.
