NASB — Mark 8 — KJV

Four Thousand Fed

1 In those days, when there was again a large crowd and they had nothing to eat, aJesus called His disciples and *said to them, 2 aI feel compassion for the Ipeople because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat. 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.” 4 And His disciples answered Him, “Where will anyone be able [to find enough] Ibread here in [this] desolate place to satisfy these people?” 5 And He was asking them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven.” 6 And He *directed the Ipeople to IIsit down on the ground; and taking the seven loaves, He gave thanks and broke them, and started giving them to His disciples to IIIserve to them, and they served them to the Ipeople. 7 They also had a few small fish; and aafter He had blessed them, He ordered these to be Iserved as well. 8 And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large abaskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces. 9 About four thousand were [there]; and He sent them away. 10 And immediately He entered the boat with His disciples and came to the district of aDalmanutha.

11aThe Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, bseeking from Him a Isign from heaven, IIto test Him. 12 aSighing deeply Iin His spirit, He *said, “Why does this generation seek for a IIsign? Truly I say to you, IIIbno IIsign will be given to this generation.” 13 Leaving them, He again embarked and went away to the other side.

14 ¶ And they had forgotten to take bread, and did not have more than one loaf in the boat with them. 15 And He was giving orders to them, saying, aWatch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of bHerod.” 16 They [began] to discuss with one another [the fact] that they had no bread. 17 And Jesus, aware of this, *said to them, “Why do you discuss [the fact] that you have no bread? aDo you not yet see or understand? Do you have a Ihardened heart? 18 aHAVING EYES, DO YOU NOT SEE? AND HAVING EARS, DO YOU NOT HEAR? And do you not remember, 19 when I broke athe five loaves for the five thousand, how many bbaskets full of broken pieces you picked up?” They *said to Him, “Twelve.” 20 “When [I broke] athe seven for the four thousand, how many large bbaskets full of broken pieces did you pick up?” And they *said to Him, “Seven.” 21 And He was saying to them, aDo you not yet understand?”

Peter’s Confession of Christ

27aJesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of bCaesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned His disciples, saying to them, “Who do people say that I am?” 28 aThey told Him, saying, “John the Baptist; and others [say] Elijah; but others, one of the prophets.” 29 And He [continued] by questioning them, “But who do you say that I am?” aPeter *answered and *said to Him, “You are Ithe Christ.” 30 And aHe Iwarned them to tell no one about Him.

And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33 But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and *said, “Get behind Me, aSatan; for you are not setting your mind on IGod’s interests, but man’s.”

Christ feedeth the people miraculously:

1 ¶ In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples [unto him], and saith unto them, 2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat: 3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way: for divers of them came from far. 4 And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these [men] with bread here in the wilderness? 5 And he asked them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven. 6 And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before [them]; and they did set [them] before the people. 7 And they had a few small fishes: and he blessed, and commanded to set them also before [them]. 8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken [meat] that was left seven baskets. 9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.

refuseth to give a sign to the Pharisees:

10 ¶ And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha. 11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. 12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. 13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.

admonisheth his disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod:

14 ¶ Now [the disciples] had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf. 15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and [of] the leaven of Herod. 16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, [It is] because we have no bread. 17 And when Jesus knew [it], he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened? 18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember? 19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve. 20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. 21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ. 30 And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. 31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and [of] the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. 33 But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

and exhorteth to patience in persecution for the profession of the Gospel.

34 ¶ And when he had called the people [unto him] with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
