3. The Miracle of Feeding Five Thousand
14 And going forth, He saw a great crowd, and He was moved with acompassion for them and healed their sick.
15 Now when evening fell, the disciples came to Him, saying, This place is deserted and the hour is already 1late. Send the crowds away that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.
16 But Jesus said to them, They do not need to go away. You 1agive them something to 2eat.
17 And they said to Him, We do not have anything here except five 1loaves and two 1fish.
18 And He said, 1Bring them here to Me.
19 And after commanding the crowds to 1recline on the grass, He took the afive loaves and the two fish, and 2blooking up to heaven, He cblessed and 3dbroke the loaves and 4gave them to the disciples, and the disciples to the crowds.
20 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up what was left over of the abroken pieces, 1twelve handbaskets full.
21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, apart from women and children.
