When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, "This place is desolate and the hour is already late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves." (Matthew 14:15)

But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!" (Matthew 14:16)

They said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish." (Matthew 14:17)

And He said, "Bring them here to Me." (Matthew 14:18)

Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds, (Matthew 14:19)

and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. (Matthew 14:20)

There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children. (Matthew 14:21)
