2“I have compassion for this crowd, because they have already been with Me 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.
3If I send them home hungry, they will faint along the way. For some of them have come a great distance.”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."
4His disciples replied, “Where in this desolate place could anyone find enough bread to feed all these people?”4And His disciples answered Him, "Where will anyone be able to find enough bread here in this desolate place to satisfy these people?"
5“How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied.5And He was asking them, "How many loaves do you have?" And they said, "Seven."
6And He directed the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then He took the seven loaves, gave thanks and broke them, and gave them to His disciples to set before the people. And they distributed them to 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.
7They also had a few small fish, and Jesus blessed them and ordered that these be set before them as well.7They also had a few small fish; and after He had blessed them, He ordered these to be served as well.
8The people ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.8And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large baskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces.
9And about four thousand men were present. As soon as Jesus had dismissed the crowd,9About four thousand were there; and He sent them away.
10He got into the boat with His disciples and went to the district of Dalmanutha.10And immediately He entered the boat with His disciples and came to the district of Dalmanutha.
11Then the Pharisees came and began to argue with Jesus, testing Him by demanding from Him a sign from heaven.11The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him.
12Jesus sighed deeply in His spirit and said, “Why does this generation demand a sign? Truly I tell 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."
13And He left them, got back into the boat, and crossed to the other side.13Leaving them, He again embarked and went away to the other side.
14Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat.14And they had forgotten to take bread, and did not have more than one loaf in the boat with them.
15“Watch out!” He cautioned them. “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod.”15And He was giving orders to them, saying, "Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod."
16So they began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread.16They began to discuss with one another the fact that they had no bread.
17Aware of their conversation, Jesus asked them, “Why are you debating about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Do you have such hard hearts?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?
18’Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear?’ And do you not remember?18"HAVING EYES, DO YOU NOT SEE? AND HAVING EARS, DO YOU NOT HEAR? And do you not remember,
19When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of broken pieces did you collect?” “Twelve,” they answered.19when I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces you picked up?" They said to Him, "Twelve."
20“And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many basketfuls of broken pieces did you collect?” “Seven,” they said.20"When I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of broken pieces did you pick up?" And they said to Him, "Seven."
21Then He asked them, “Do you still not understand?”21And He was saying to them, "Do you not yet understand?"
22When they arrived at Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him.22And they came to Bethsaida. And they brought a blind man to Jesus and implored Him to touch him.
23So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village. Then He spit on the man’s eyes and placed His hands on him. “Can you see anything?” He asked.23Taking the blind man by the hand, He brought him out of the village; and after spitting on his eyes and laying His hands on him, He asked him, "Do you see anything?"
24The man looked up and said, “I can see the people, but they look like trees walking around.”24And he looked up and said, "I see men, for I see them like trees, walking around."
25Once again Jesus placed His hands on the man’s eyes, and when he opened them his sight was restored, and he could see everything clearly.25Then again He laid His hands on his eyes; and he looked intently and was restored, and began to see everything clearly.
26Jesus sent him home and said, “Do not go back into the village.”26And He sent him to his home, saying, "Do not even enter the village."
27Then Jesus and His disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way, He questioned His disciples: “Who do people say I am?”27Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, "Who do people say that I am?"
28They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”28They told Him, saying, "John the Baptist; and others say Elijah; but others, one of the prophets."
29“But what about you?” Jesus asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ.”29And He continued by questioning them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ."
30And Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about Him.30And He warned them to tell no one about Him.
31Then He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and that He must be killed and after three days rise again.31And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
32He spoke this message quite frankly, and Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.32And He was stating the matter plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
33But Jesus, turning and looking at His disciples, rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”33But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's."
34Then Jesus called the crowd to Him along with His disciples, and He told them, “If anyone wants to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.34And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.
35For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and for the gospel will save it.35"For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it.
36What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?36"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
37Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?37"For what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
38If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father’s glory with the holy angels.”38"For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
