9 Luke - Revised Standard Version The Gospel
On their return the apostles told him what they had done. And he took them and withdrew apart to a city called Beth-sa'ida.The Feeding of the Five Thousand Lk.9.10-17 Mt.14.13-21  Mk.6.30-44  Jn.6.1-14   
When the crowds learned it, they followed him; and he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God, and cured those who had need of healing.         
Now the day began to wear away; and the twelve came and said to him, "Send the crowd away, to go into the villages and country round about, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a lonely place."         
But he said to them, "You give them something to eat." They said, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish - unless we are to go and buy food for all these people."         
For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, "Make them sit down in companies, about fifty each."         
And they did so, and made them all sit down.         
And taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.         
And all ate and were satisfied. And they took up what was left over, twelve baskets of broken pieces.
