John 6:4-12English Standard Version (ESV)

Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii[a] worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to get a little.” One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him, “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many?” 10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.”

Yochanan 6:4-12Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

Pesach was near at hand, the Chag (Jewish Feast).

Therefore, having lifted up his eyes, Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach saw that a great multitude is coming to him, and he says to Philippos, From where may we buy lechem that these ones may eat?

But he was saying this to test Philippos, for he himself knew what he was about to do.

In reply, Philippos said, Two hundred denarii worth of lechem would not be enough that each one may take a little okhel.

One of his talmidim, Andrew, ach of Shimon Kefa, says to him,

There is a na’ar (lad) here who has five barley loaves and two dagim (fish), but what are these for so many? [2Kg 4:43]

10 Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach said, Instruct the anashim (men) to recline. Now there was much grass in the area. Therefore the anashim reclined, their number being about chameshet alafim.

11 Therefore, Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach took the loaves and, having made the bracha, distributed to the ones bimesibba (reclining); likewise also he distributed of the dagim (fish) as much as they were wanting.

12 Now when they were filled, he tells his talmidim, Gather the shirayim (Rebbe’s leftovers), that nothing may be lost.
