Matthew 15:29-39

ESV 29 Jesus went on from there and walked beside the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain and sat down there. MSG 29 After Jesus returned, he walked along Lake Galilee and then climbed a mountain and took his place, ready to receive visitors. ESV 30 And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, MSG 30 They came, tons of them, bringing along the paraplegic, the blind, the maimed, the mute - all sorts of people in need - and more or less threw them down at Jesus' feet to see what he would do with them. He healed them. ESV 31 so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel. MSG 31 When the people saw the mutes speaking, the maimed healthy, the paraplegics walking around, the blind looking around, they were astonished and let everyone know that God was blazingly alive among them. ESV 32 Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion on the crowd because they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat. And I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way." MSG 32 But Jesus wasn't finished with them. He called his disciples and said, "I hurt for these people. For three days now they've been with me, and now they have nothing to eat. I can't send them away without a meal - they'd probably collapse on the road." ESV 33 And the disciples said to him, "Where are we to get enough bread in such a desolate place to feed so great a crowd?" MSG 33 His disciples said, "But where in this deserted place are you going to dig up enough food for a meal?" ESV 34 And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish." MSG 34 Jesus asked, "How much bread do you have?" ESV 35 And directing the crowd to sit down on the ground, MSG 35 At that, Jesus directed the people to sit down. ESV 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. MSG 36 He took the seven loaves and the fish. After giving thanks, he divided it up and gave it to the people. ESV 37 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over. MSG 37 Everyone ate. They had all they wanted. It took seven large baskets to collect the leftovers. ESV 38 Those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. MSG 38 Over four thousand people ate their fill at that meal. ESV 39 And after sending away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan. MSG 39 After Jesus sent them away, he climbed in the boat and crossed over to the Magadan hills.

Matthew 16:1-12

ESV 1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. MSG 1 Some Pharisees and Sadducees were on him again, pressing him to prove himself to them. ESV 2 He answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' MSG 2 He told them, "You have a saying that goes, 'Red sky at night, sailor's delight; ESV 3 And in the morning, 'It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.'You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. MSG 3 red sky at morning, sailors take warning.' You find it easy enough to forecast the weather - why can't you read the signs of the times? ESV 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah." So he left them and departed. MSG 4 An evil and wanton generation is always wanting signs and wonders. The only sign you'll get is the Jonah sign." Then he turned on his heel and walked away. ESV 5 When the disciples reached the other side, they had forgotten to bring any bread. MSG 5 On their way to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring along bread. ESV 6 Jesus said to them, "Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees." MSG 6 In the meantime, Jesus said to them, "Keep a sharp eye out for Pharisee-Sadducee yeast." ESV 7 And they began discussing it among themselves, saying, "We brought no bread." MSG 7 Thinking he was scolding them for forgetting bread, they discussed in whispers what to do. ESV 8 But Jesus, aware of this, said, "O you of little faith, why are you discussing among yourselves the fact that you have no bread? MSG 8 Jesus knew what they were doing and said, "Why all these worried whispers about forgetting the bread? Runt believers! ESV 9 Do you not yet perceive? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? MSG 9 Haven't you caught on yet? Don't you remember the five loaves of bread and the five thousand people, and how many baskets of fragments you picked up? ESV 10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you gathered? MSG 10 Or the seven loaves that fed four thousand, and how many baskets of leftovers you collected? ESV 11 How is it that you fail to understand that I did not speak about bread? Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees." MSG 11 Haven't you realized yet that bread isn't the problem? The problem is yeast, Pharisee-Sadducee yeast." ESV 12 Then they understood that he did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. MSG 12 Then they got it: that he wasn't concerned about eating, but teaching - the Pharisee-Sadducee kind of teaching.
