John 6:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Given thanks

All the Synoptists relate his looking up to heaven and blessing. Perhaps he used the familiar formula, "Blessed art thou Jehovah our God, King of the world, who causes to come forth bread from the earth."

To the disciples, and the disciples

The best texts omit. Render, as Rev., He distributed to them that were set down.

Likewise of the fishes

So also Mark.

As much as they would

Peculiar to John.
