Matthew 15:32 Now Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” 33 Then the disciples said to him, “Where could we get enough bread in the wilderness to feed {“Satisfy” (לשביע)} such a great crowd?” 34 And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven {“Seven” (שבעה)}, and a few small fish.” 35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground {“Grass” (העשבים)}. 36 He took the seven {“Seven” (השבעה)} loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them {“Broke them” (וישברם)} and gave them to the disciples. And the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied {“Satisfied” (וישבעו)}. And they took up seven {“Seven” (שבעה)} baskets full of the broken pieces that were left over.
