And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them. (Matthew 15:30)

So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel. (Matthew 15:31)

And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, "I feel compassion for the people, because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way." (Matthew 15:32)

The disciples said to Him, "Where would we get so many loaves in this desolate place to satisfy such a large crowd?" (Matthew 15:33)

And Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven, and a few small fish." (Matthew 15:34)

And He directed the people to sit down on the ground; (Matthew 15:35)

and He took the seven loaves and the fish; and giving thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. (Matthew 15:36)

And they all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, seven large baskets full. (Matthew 15:37)

And those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. (Matthew 15:38)
