The Feeding of the Four Thousand

(Matthew 15:29-39)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said,1In those days, when again a great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat, he called his disciples to him and said to them,1In those days, when there was again a large crowd and they had nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples and said to them,1In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,1In those days there was again a large crowd, and they had nothing to eat. He summoned the disciples and said to them,
2"I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat.2“I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat.2"I feel compassion for the people because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat.2I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:2"I have compassion on the crowd, because they've already stayed with Me three days and have nothing to eat.
3If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance."3And if I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way. And some of them have come from far away.”3"If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way; and some of them have come from a great distance."3And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far.3If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, and some of them have come a long distance."
4His disciples answered, "But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?"4And his disciples answered him, “How can one feed these people with bread here in this desolate place?”4And His disciples answered Him, "Where will anyone be able to find enough bread here in this desolate place to satisfy these people?"4And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?4His disciples answered Him, "Where can anyone get enough bread here in this desolate place to fill these people?"

5"How many loaves do you have?" Jesus asked. "Seven," they replied.5And he asked them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven.”5And He was asking them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."5And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven.5"How many loaves do you have?" He asked them." Seven," they said.
6He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people, and they did so.6And he directed the crowd to sit down on the ground. And he took the seven loaves, and having given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to set before the people; and they set them before the crowd.6And He directed the people to sit down on the ground; and taking the seven loaves, He gave thanks and broke them, and started giving them to His disciples to serve to them, and they served them to the people.6And 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.6Then He commanded the crowd to sit down on the ground. Taking the seven loaves, He gave thanks, broke the loaves, and kept on giving them to His disciples to set before the people. So they served the loaves to the crowd.
7They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them.7And they had a few small fish. And having blessed them, he said that these also should be set before them.7They also had a few small fish; and after He had blessed them, He ordered these to be served as well.7And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before them.7They also had a few small fish, and when He had blessed them, He said these were to be served as well.
8The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.8And they ate and were satisfied. And they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full.8And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large baskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces.8So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.8They ate and were filled. Then they collected seven large baskets of leftover pieces.

The Pharisees Seek a Sign

(Matthew 16:1-4; Luke 12:54-56)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
11The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven.11The Pharisees came and began to argue with him, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.11The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him.11And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.11The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, demanding of Him a sign from heaven to test Him.
12He sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a sign? Truly I tell you, no sign will be given to it."12And he sighed deeply in his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Truly, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”12Sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, "Why does this generation seek for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation."12And 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.12But sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, "Why does this generation demand a sign? I assure you: No sign will be given to this generation!"
13Then he left them, got back into the boat and crossed to the other side.13And he left them, got into the boat again, and went to the other side.13Leaving them, He again embarked and went away to the other side.13And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.13Then He left them, got on board the boat again, and went to the other side.

Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod."
16They discussed this with one another and said, "It is because we have no bread."16And they began discussing with one another the fact that they had no bread.16They began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread.16And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.16They were discussing among themselves that they did not have any bread.
17Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: "Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened?17And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why are you discussing the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive or understand? Are your hearts hardened?17And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet see or understand? Do you have a hardened heart?17And 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?17Aware of this, He said to them, "Why are you discussing that you do not have any bread? Don't you understand or comprehend? Is your heart hardened?

25Once more Jesus put his hands on the man's eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.25Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.25Then again He laid His hands on his eyes; and he looked intently and was restored, and began to see everything clearly.25After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.25Again Jesus placed His hands on the man's eyes, and he saw distinctly. He was cured and could see everything clearly.
26Jesus sent him home, saying, "Don't even go into the village."26And he sent him to his home, saying, “Do not even enter the village.”26And He sent him to his home, saying, "Do not even enter the village."26And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.26Then He sent him home, saying, "Don't even go into the village."
