Mark 8:1 In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them, 2: I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: 3: And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 4: And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? 5: And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. 6: And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people. 7: And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them. 8: So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets. 9: And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
