Mark 6 : 35 - 44

Chapter 6

35When the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, "This is a deserted place, and already the hour is late.
36Send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat."
37But He answered and said to them, "You give them something to eat." And they said to Him, "Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give them something to eat?"
38But He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go and see." And when they found out they said, "Five, and two fish."
39Then He commanded them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass.
40So they sat down in ranks, in hundreds and in fifties.
41And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He looked up to heaven, blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all.
42So they all ate and were filled.
43And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish.
44Now those who had eaten the loaves were about five thousand men.
