5When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?"5Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?”5Therefore Jesus, lifting up His eyes and seeing that a large crowd was coming to Him, said to Philip, "Where are we to buy bread, so that these may eat?"5When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?5Therefore, when Jesus looked up and noticed a huge crowd coming toward Him, He asked Philip, "Where will we buy bread so these people can eat?"
6He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.6He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do.6This He was saying to test him, for He Himself knew what He was intending to do.6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.6He asked this to test him, for He Himself knew what He was going to do.
7Philip answered him, "It would take more than half a year's wages to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!"7Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to get a little.”7Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little."7Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.7Philip answered, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread wouldn't be enough for each of them to have a little."

10Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there).10Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number.10Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.10And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.10Then Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." There was plenty of grass in that place, so they sat down. The men numbered about 5,000.
11Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.11Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted.11Jesus then took the loaves, and having given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also of the fish as much as they wanted.11And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.11Then Jesus took the loaves, and after giving thanks He distributed them to those who were seated--so also with the fish, as much as they wanted.
12When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, "Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted."12And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.”12When they were filled, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost."12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.12When they were full, He told His disciples, "Collect the leftovers so that nothing is wasted."
13So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.13So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves left by those who had eaten.13So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten.13Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.13So they collected them and filled 12 baskets with the pieces from the five barley loaves that were left over by those who had eaten.
14After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, "Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world."14When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said, “This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!”14Therefore when the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world."14Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.14When the people saw the sign He had done, they said, "This really is the Prophet who was to come into the world!"
15Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.15Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.15So Jesus, perceiving that they were intending to come and take Him by force to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain by Himself alone.15When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.15Therefore, when Jesus knew that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He withdrew again to the mountain by Himself.

16When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake,16When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea,16Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea,16And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,16When evening came, His disciples went down to the sea,
17where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them.17got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.17and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea to Capernaum. It had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them.17And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.17got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. Darkness had already set in, but Jesus had not yet come to them.
18A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.18The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing.18The sea began to be stirred up because a strong wind was blowing.18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.18Then a high wind arose, and the sea began to churn.
19When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened.19When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were frightened.19Then, when they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat; and they were frightened.19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.19After they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea. He was coming near the boat, and they were afraid.

20But he said to them, "It is I; don't be afraid."20But he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.”20But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid."20But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.20But He said to them, "It is I. Don't be afraid!"
21Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.21Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.21So they were willing to receive Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.21Then they were willing to take Him on board, and at once the boat was at the shore where they were heading.
22The next day the crowd that had stayed on the opposite shore of the lake realized that only one boat had been there, and that Jesus had not entered it with his disciples, but that they had gone away alone.22On the next day the crowd that remained on the other side of the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone.22The next day the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone.22The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;22The next day, the crowd that had stayed on the other side of the sea knew there had been only one boat. They also knew that Jesus had not boarded the boat with His disciples, but that His disciples had gone off alone.
23Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.23Other boats from Tiberias came near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.23There came other small boats from Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks.23(Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)23Some boats from Tiberias came near the place where they ate the bread after the Lord gave thanks.
24Once the crowd realized that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum in search of Jesus.24So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they themselves got into the boats and went to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.24So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus.24When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.24When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor His disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum looking for Jesus.
25When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, "Rabbi, when did you get here?"25When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?”25When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did You get here?"25And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?25When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when did You get here?"
