@ In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,
@ I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:
@ And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.
@ And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?
@ And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.
@ 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.
@ And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.
@ So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.
@ And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.
@ And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
@ And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
@ And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
@ And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
@ Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.
@ And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
@ And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.
@ And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
@ Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
@ When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
@ And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
@ And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
