Notes on the Bible, by Albert Barnes, [1834]
Jesus went over - Went to the east side of the sea. The place to which he went was Bethsaida, Luk 9:10. The account of this miracle of feeding the five thousand is recorded also in Mat 14:13-21; Mar 6:32-44; Luk 9:10-17. John has added a few circumstances omitted by the other evangelists.

10 And [2532] the apostles [652], when they were returned [5290], told [1334] him [846] all that [3745] they had done [4160]. And [2532] he took [3880] them [846], and went aside [5298] privately [2596] [2398] into [1519] a desert [2048] place [5117] belonging to the city [4172] called [2564] Bethsaida [966].
11 And [1161] the people [3793], when they knew [1097] it, followed [190] him [846]: and [2532] he received [1209] them [846], and spake [2980] unto them [846] of [4012] the kingdom [932] of God [2316], and [2532] healed [2390] them that had [2192] need [5532] of healing [2322].
12 And [1161] when the day [2250] began [756] to wear away [2827], then [1161] came [4334] the twelve [1427], and said [2036] unto him [846], Send [630] the multitude [3793] away [630], that [2443] they may go [565] into [1519] the towns [2968] and [2532] country [68] round about [2945], and lodge [2647], and [2532] get [2147] victuals [1979]: for [3754] we are [2070] here [5602] in [1722] a desert [2048] place [5117].
13 But [1161] he said [2036] unto [4314] them [846], Give [1325] ye [5210] them [846] to eat [5315]. And [1161] they said [2036], We [2254] have no [3756] [1526] more [4119] but [2228] five [4002] loaves [740] and [2532] two [1417] fishes [2486]; except [1509] we [2249] should go [4198] and buy [59] meat [1033] for [1519] all [3956] this [5126] people [2992].
14 For [1063] they were [2258] about [5616] five thousand [4000] men [435]. And [1161] he said [2036] to [4314] his [846] disciples [3101], Make [2625] them [846] sit down [2625] by [303] fifties [4004] in a company [2828].
15 And [2532] they did [4160] so [3779], and [2532] made [347] them all [537] sit down [347].
16 Then [1161] he took [2983] the five [4002] loaves [740] and [2532] the two [1417] fishes [2486], and looking up [308] to [1519] heaven [3772], he blessed [2127] them [846], and [2532] brake [2622], and [2532] gave [1325] to the disciples [3101] to set before [3908] the multitude [3793].
17 And [2532] they did eat [5315], and [2532] were [5526] all [3956] filled [5526]: and [2532] there was taken up [142] of fragments [2801] that remained [4052] to them [846] twelve [1427] baskets [2894].
32 And [2532] they departed [565] into [1519] a desert [2048] place [5117] by ship [4143] privately [2596] [2398].
33 And [2532] the people [3793] saw [1492] them [846] departing [5217], and [2532] many [4183] knew [1921] him [846], and [2532] ran [4936] afoot [3979] thither [1563] out of [575] all [3956] cities [4172], and [2532] outwent [4281] them [846], and [2532] came together [4905] unto [4314] him [846].
34 And [2532] Jesus [2424], when he came out [1831], saw [1492] much [4183] people [3793], and [2532] was moved with compassion [4697] toward [1909] them [846], because [3754] they were [2258] as [5613] sheep [4263] not [3361] having [2192] a shepherd [4166]: and [2532] he began [756] to teach [1321] them [846] many things [4183].
35 And [2532] when the day [5610] was [1096] now [2235] far spent [4183], his [846] disciples [3101] came [4334] unto him [846], and said [3004], [3754] This is [2076] a desert [2048] place [5117], and [2532] now [2235] the time [5610] is far passed [4183]:
36 Send [630] them [846] away [630], that [2443] they may go [565] into [1519] the country [68] round about [2945], and [2532] into the villages [2968], and buy [59] themselves [1438] bread [740]: for [1063] they have [2192] nothing [5101] [3756] to eat [5315].
37 He answered [611] and [1161] said [2036] unto them [846], Give [1325] ye [5210] them [846] to eat [5315]. And [2532] they say [3004] unto him [846], Shall we go [565] and buy [59] two hundred [1250] pennyworth [1220] of bread [740], and [2532] give [1325] them [846] to eat [5315]?
38 [1161] He saith [3004] unto them [846], How many [4214] loaves [740] have ye [2192]? go [5217] and [2532] see [1492]. And [2532] when they knew [1097], they say [3004], Five [4002], and [2532] two [1417] fishes [2486].
39 And [2532] he commanded [2004] them [846] to make [347] all [3956] sit down [347] by companies [4849] [4849] upon [1909] the green [5515] grass [5528].
40 And [2532] they sat down [377] in ranks [4237] [4237], by [303] hundreds [1540], and [2532] by [303] fifties [4004].
41 And [2532] when he had taken [2983] the five [4002] loaves [740] and [2532] the two [1417] fishes [2486], he looked up [308] to [1519] heaven [3772], and blessed [2127], and [2532] brake [2622] the loaves [740], and [2532] gave [1325] them to his [846] disciples [3101] to [2443] set before [3908] them [846]; and [2532] the two [1417] fishes [2486] divided he [3307] among them all [3956].
42 And [2532] they did [5315] all [3956] eat [5315], and [2532] were filled [5526].
43 And [2532] they took up [142] twelve [1427] baskets [2894] full [4134] of the fragments [2801], and [2532] of [575] the fishes [2486].
44 And [2532] they that did eat [5315] of the loaves [740] were [2258] about [5616] five thousand [4000] men [435].
13 When [2532] Jesus [2424] heard [191] of it, he departed [402] thence [1564] by [1722] ship [4143] into [1519] a desert [2048] place [5117] apart [2596] [2398]: and [2532] when the people [3793] had heard [191] thereof, they followed [190] him [846] on foot [3979] out of [575] the cities [4172].
14 And [2532] Jesus [2424] went forth [1831], and saw [1492] a great [4183] multitude [3793], and [2532] was moved with compassion [4697] toward [1909] them [846], and [2532] he healed [2323] their [846] sick [732].
15 And [1161] when it was [1096] evening [3798], his [846] disciples [3101] came [4334] to him [846], saying [3004], This is [2076] a desert [2048] place [5117], and [2532] the time [5610] is now [2235] past [3928]; send [630] the multitude [3793] away [630], that [2443] they may go [565] into [1519] the villages [2968], and buy [59] themselves [1438] victuals [1033].
16 But [1161] Jesus [2424] said [2036] unto them [846], They need [5532] not [3756] depart [565] [2192]; give [1325] ye [5210] them [846] to eat [5315].
17 And [1161] they say [3004] unto him [846], We have [2192] here [5602] but [3756] [1508] five [4002] loaves [740], and [2532] two [1417] fishes [2486].
18 [1161] He said [2036], Bring [5342] them [846] hither [5602] to me [3427].
19 And [2532] he commanded [2753] the multitude [3793] to sit down [347] on [1909] the grass [5528], and [2532] took [2983] the five [4002] loaves [740], and [2532] the two [1417] fishes [2486], and looking up [308] to [1519] heaven [3772], he blessed [2127], and [2532] brake [2806], and gave [1325] the loaves [740] to his disciples [3101], and [1161] the disciples [3101] to the multitude [3793].
20 And [2532] they did [5315] all [3956] eat [5315], and [2532] were filled [5526]: and [2532] they took up [142] of the fragments [2801] that remained [4052] twelve [1427] baskets [2894] full [4134].

10 And [2532] the apostles [652], when they were returned [5290], told [1334] him [846] all that [3745] they had done [4160]. And [2532] he took [3880] them [846], and went aside [5298] privately [2596] [2398] into [1519] a desert [2048] place [5117] belonging to the city [4172] called [2564] Bethsaida [966].
