The feeding of the four thousand

Matthew 15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 33: And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? 34: And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. 35: And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. 36: And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37: And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full. 38: And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.

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.
