Mark 8:1-26

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 distribute to 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 were present. After he had sent them away, NLT 10 Immediately after this, he got into a boat with his disciples and crossed over to the region of Dalmanutha. NIV 10 he got into the boat with his disciples and went to the region of Dalmanutha. NLT 11 When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had arrived, they came and started to argue with him. 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 sign? Truly I tell you, no sign will be given to it.” NLT 13 So he got back into the boat and left them, and he crossed to the other side of the lake. NIV 13 Then he left them, got back into the boat and crossed to the other side. NLT 14 But the disciples had forgotten to bring any food. They had only one loaf of bread with them in the boat. NIV 14 The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat. NLT 15 As they were crossing the lake, Jesus warned them, “Watch out! Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and of Herod.” NIV 15 “Be careful,” Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod.” NLT 16 At this they began to argue with each other because they hadn’t brought any bread. NIV 16 They discussed this with one another and said, “It is because we have no bread.” NLT 17 Jesus knew what they were saying, so he said, “Why are you arguing about having no bread? Don’t you know or understand even yet? Are your hearts too hard to take it in? NIV 17 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? NLT 18 ‘You have eyes—can’t you see? You have ears—can’t you hear?’ Don’t you remember anything at all? NIV 18 Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember? NLT 19 When I fed the 5,000 with five loaves of bread, how many baskets of leftovers did you pick up afterward?” “Twelve,” they said. NIV 19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”“Twelve,” they replied. NLT 20 “And when I fed the 4,000 with seven loaves, how many large baskets of leftovers did you pick up?” “Seven,” they said. NIV 20 “And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”They answered, “Seven.” NLT 21 “Don’t you understand yet?” he asked them. NIV 21 He said to them, “Do you still not understand?” NLT 22 When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to Jesus, and they begged him to touch the man and heal him. NIV 22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. NLT 23 Jesus took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village. Then, spitting on the man’s eyes, he laid his hands on him and asked, “Can you see anything now?” NIV 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” NLT 24 The man looked around. “Yes,” he said, “I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around.” NIV 24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” NLT 25 Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again, and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly. NIV 25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. NLT 26 Jesus sent him away, saying, “Don’t go back into the village on your way home.” NIV 26 Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go intothe village.”
