Matthew 15

29Jesus went on from there and walked beside the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain and sat down there.
30And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them,
31so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel.
32Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “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, “Seven, and a few small fish.”
35And directing the crowd to sit down on the ground,
36he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.
37And they 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.
39And after sending away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan.
