Matthew 15:32-38

Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand

32 aThen Jesus called his disciples to him and said, b“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.” 33And the disciples said to him, “Where are we to get enough bread in such a desolate place to feed so great a crowd?” 34And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, cSeven, and a few small fish.” 35And directing the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36he took the seven loaves and the fish, and dhaving given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37And ethey all ate and were satisfied. And they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 38Those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.
