32 fSo they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.
33 But 6the multitudes saw them departing, and many gknew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him. 34 hAnd Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like isheep not having a shepherd. So jHe began to teach them many things. 35 kWhen the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, “This is a deserted place, and already the hour is late. 36 Send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves 7bread; for they have nothing to eat.”
And they said to Him, l“Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give them something to eat?”
And when they found out they said, m“Five, and two fish.”
39 Then He ncommanded them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass. 40 So they sat down in ranks, in hundreds and in fifties. 41 And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fish, He olooked up to heaven, pblessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fish He divided among them all. 42 So they all ate and were filled. 43 And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish. 44 Now those who had eaten the loaves were 8about five thousand men.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
