A.12 And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place. 13 But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat.
B. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.
C.14 For they were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, Make them sit down
D. by fifties in a company.
C’.15 And they did so, and made them all sit down.
B’.16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.
A’.17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
